Mother's Day Pancakes

Ty is my grandson.

Ty made pancakes for his mom on Mother's Day (with a little help). He also presented her with his first grade class's recipe book to which he had submitted the recipe. They were a hit! Here's his recipe, from his class's recipe book:

     By Ty Flansburgh

Skittles         chocolate chips
M&Ms         pancake mix

1. Mix them all in a mixer.
2. Put them on the stove in a flat pan.
3. When there are lots of bubbles you flip them.
4. Sometimes you can eat them with syrup.
5. We don't like butter on them but you can do peanut butter.
6. Dad likes that!

Pretty good for a six year old! But since I'm not six, I need a little clarification. So here's my version of his recipe:


2 C whole wheat flour
2 T sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 C buttermilk (or 2 T vinegar + enough milk to make 2 C total)
2 eggs, beaten
¼ C Canola oil
A handful each of
chocolate chips
Skittles (Go easy on these.)
Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and oil. Stir with a whisk just until smooth. Gently stir in the chocolate chips, M&M's, Skittles, and blueberries.
Heat griddle. To test griddle, sprinkle a few drops of water onto it. If the bubbles skitter around, the heat is just right.
Pour about 3 T of batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake. Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around the edges and bubbly in the center. Turn and cook other side until golden brown.

Yield: About 24 pancakes
Note: Ty asked me to publish his recipe on the Internet. He (and I) hope you enjoy it!
