I mix the dry ingredients and then cut in the butter. This is the stage that I package what I won't be cooking. It divides nicely into quarters. Put 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons in each of four ziploc bags. I also write out the rest of the recipe to put in the bag, so I don't have to drag out my cookbook again.
For each bag, use 1 cup buttermilk, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon honey and 1/4 cup chopped pecans.
The recipe makes way more than they tell you. Perhaps my pancakes are small but I get 7 pancakes out of each 'package'.
Surprise Flapjacks adapted from The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup honey
1 cup chopped pecans
1. Process the first 7 ingredients in a food processor fitted with a steel blade until well blended. Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
3. Heat a pancake griddle and brush it with melted butter. Ladle the batter onto the griddle to make 6-inch pancakes. Cook until golden on both sides. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
