For the average home, quick to prepare meals have always been on the menu. Because quick to prepare foods have always been needed to feed our families. Since forever life has been busy! And the need to feed the ones you love has been just as constant. I appreciate that I have a machine to drop my dirty clothes into, add some soap ( made by someone else ) and push a button. Poof, laundry is now being washed and rinsed. Drying my laundry is just as easy.......
Seriously so much easier than boiling water, adding your own homemade soap, then dipping your dirty laundry, piece by piece to be scrubbed on a wash board. But wait there is more, now we can talk about the rinse cycle! After that, it will be time to hang the laundry for drying.
Imagine doing laundry for a large family, this old fashioned way.....
I ask you, who had time to make anything but a quick meal or one that had already been placed into the oven to cook on its own (baked beans, again...)? Century to century, how we complete tasks and chores have been the only change. Today's families and households are still very busy, even if in different ways. It is also where we all come together in our need to have quick to prepare meals.
Sometimes that is easy.

Easy Oven Baked Pancakes
adapted from: Jamie Oliver's One Cup Pancakes
1 c whole grain self-rising flour (you can find my recipe here.)
1 c milk
vanilla, if desired
Prepare a 7X11 inch baking pan, set aside.
Place flour into a medium sized bowl, make a "well" in the center of the flour, drop in the egg. Pour the milk around the rim of the bowl over the flour. Beat egg lightly, then combine all ingredients until smooth. Note: mixture does not have to be lump free.
|My secret ingredient, I add a splash of vanilla.|
Feel free to drop fruit or chocolate chips or nuts over the batter to flavor your pancakes if desired. Baking time may vary.
|Cut into squares for easy serving.|
PS, this recipe is easy to adapt for larger families. Double the ingredients and bake in a larger pan, with adjustments for baking time.
