handcakes

* no picture - they were eaten up to quickly!

We have made the switch from breakfast cereal to hot breakfasts and one of our favorites is "handcakes." We call them that because we eat them with our hands. The sweetness is in the pancake so we do not need syrup and utensils. Here is my recipe adapted from an old Fanny Farmer cookbook. This is a big batch that feed our family of 5.

handcakes

1 1/2 c milk
2 T canola or olive oil
2 eggs
2 c flour (I use all white whole wheat or a combo of hard whole wheat and white)
4 t baking power
4 T sugar (or honey, or brown sugar)
1 t salt
cinnamon

mix liquids, add dry and whisk up and cook. I love my electric griddle for cooking these. The fun part is adding in goodies. We like chocolate chips, bananas, pecans, pearl sugar, fruit powders, fresh or frozen berries, unsweetened coconut and so on. They fill the kids up for the morning like cereal never did (especially if eating with a smoothies or cup of yogurt).
