The night before, set out your griddle and spatula. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1 Tbs sugar, 4 tsp baking powder and 3/4 tsp salt. In a small bowl, beat two eggs with a hand mixer on low. Slowly drizzle in 5 Tbs vegetable oil with the mixer running. When the egg and oil are well combined add the milk and blend briefly. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture. With an ordinary fork, stir just to combine. Leave the lumps. Cover the bowl and refrigerate. This will serve four adults.
In the morning, turn on the griddle (and the coffee). Take the pancake batter out. You will find that it has separated leaving a cake like foam on the top and the liquid on the bottom. Don’t panic. Take your kitchen fork and gently stir to mix the two together. When they are combined give a few strong whisking strokes to get out any large lumps, but don’t worry about the small ones. You are now ready to cook your pancakes! See – quick and easy!
P.S. the pancake recipe above can be made with 1 1/4 cup regular flour if you don’t have whole wheat flour on hand.
