Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

These pancakes are best made and eaten on a lazy weekend morning.  I sure don’t seem to have many of those anymore, but maybe if this cold winter weather decides to hang on for one last weekend….these could fit the bill for somebody’s weekend.   Would also be great out in the woods,  cooked over hot coals on your Cast Iron Skillet!

This ingenious recipe is courtesy of my mom.  You make your own batch of pancake mix out of dry ingredients, and when you want pancakes, just add eggs, oil, and water to your pre-made mix, and voila!  Plus, they are some of the best pancakes ever.

Pancake Mix:

  • 4 c. oatmeal
  • 2 c. white flour
  • 2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. dry milk
  • 3 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Mix together and store in a large ziplock bag or a tightly sealed container.  When you’re ready for pancakes:

  • 2 c. pancake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. oil
  • 1 c. water
  • frozen blueberries (optional)

Beat eggs in a bowl.  Add oil.  Alternately add pancake mix and water, mix well.  Spoon onto a heated cast iron skillet.  Drop blueberries onto the batter-up side of the pancake, then flip.  Makes about a dozen 4 inch pancakes.  Enjoy with maple syrup and/or whipped cream.

My mom says that you can also make waffles with this mix, just add less water.  I don’t know the exact measurement, maybe 1/2 or 3/4 cup?
