We love pancakes at our house. I grew up on pancakes. Actually I grew up on very unhealthy delicious apple pancakes that were cooked in bacon grease. Hey, don't knock it 'til you've tried it. They are out of this world! I still make pancakes like that, but we only do it once a month. The other times I make pancakes, I do not use bacon grease or bacon, rather we use a canola spray if needed and chicken apples sausage. My mom always used Bisquick mix...I don't like pancakes any other way. With Bisquick, they cook up nice and thick. Several months ago I ran out of mix and went in search of a homemade substitute and found it on the world wide web. Aaaahhhh, how did we ever live without the internet?! I haven't bought Bisquick since. I have used this recipe for both pancakes and waffles!
Here are the ingredients. I cut this in half. This mix makes about 6 cups, so I ended up with 3 cups of mix. You need 2 cups total for the pancakes.
Mix 2 cups of mix with 1 cup of milk and 2 eggs. Mix well and then add 1 peeled, sliced, Granny Smith apple. Then add 1/2 - 1 cup of blueberries, depending on your preference. Cook on a hot griddle until bubbles on top of pancakes begin to pop and flip to cook the other side. The 2nd side only needs a few minutes. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar and a dollop of strawberry jam.
