Pancakes are fun food. Plus they are good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is funny but all you have to do is add an egg and a couple pieces of crisp bacon to a plate of pancakes, and that meal is just as delicious for breakfast as it is for lunch or dinner......
One day while looking for a different recipe, I stumbled upon Jamie Oliver and his One Cup Pancakes. Right away I knew I wanted to try them, because I make my own self-rising flour using whole grains. While you can find the recipe here (try those biscuit while you're on that page, they are great!), but I decided to list the ingredients and method again, for your convenience......

But before we get to the flour recipe, lets take a look at those pancakes. They are great, simple, wholesome and perfect to accept a pat of butter and some real maple syrup. Perfect for a Sunday breakfast, or any time you want pancakes. Plus the recipe could not be any simpler. Jamie made his with blueberries, we did not (this time) but feel free to add them.
Jamie Oliver's One Cup Pancakes
adapted from One Cup Pancakes
makes 6 pancakes
1 c self-rising flour
1 c whole milk
1 large egg
bacon fat, butter or coconut oil for frying
Combine in a large bowl, using a wooden spoon mix until almost smooth. You actually want a few lumps in your batter.
|"One Cup" Pancake Batter.|
Heat a large skillet or griddle, add fat of choice, drop batter and cook over medium heat until golden. Turn pancake over and cook other side until golden.
Pancakes should spring back in the center when properly cooked. Place on an oven proof platter and keep warm in a low oven (200 degrees) until ready to serve.
Serve with butter, and real maple syrup.
Homemade Self-rising Flour
Note: Feel free to increase the whole wheat flour while decreasing the all purpose flour, with each batch made. We now make this with all whole grains.
2 c whole wheat flour
6 c flour - divided
4 T baking powder
2 t salt
Place the whole wheat flour and 5 cups of regular flour in a large bowl. Place the baking powder and salt into the bottom of the one cup measuring cup and add enough flour to make the final cup of flour for the total of 6 cups. Ad the final cup of flour to the bowl and whisk thoroughly.
Store in a cool dry place, you can refrigerate due to the whole wheat flour, if you prefer. This can be used in any recipe calling for self-rising flour, like these pancakes....
