My children have decided that they longer like to eat cereal for breakfast. I suspect that they realize that it really doesn't fill them up for long and that a hearty breakfast will help carry them further through the morning.
Of course, whipping up pancakes on a school morning takes time at a point where time is of the essence. Therefore, we have premixed all the dry ingredients for our pancake batter so that in the morning all we have to do is add the wet ingredients. It simplifies making pancakes tremendously! I love this recipe because it consistently produces delicious, fluffy pancakes.
Don't you love the chalkboard label? It was perfect for writing the amounts to mix into the dry ingredients! Now it's possible to make pancakes quickly- even though it's still not as fast as cereal it's definitely tastier!
P.S. I got this recipe from Country Living several years ago. If anyone is interested in it I will be happy to post the recipe or email it to you!
