We just ate what my family (especially Sam) says are the best EVER pancakes. Thought I'd share the recipe with you all. It is only found here, folks. It was an original creation. This is enough to feed a family of 6 with some left over.
Buttermilk Apple Sauce Pancakes
3 3/4 cups flour (I used unbleached white)
2 T wheat germ
2 T flax seed meal
4 T. brown sugar
4 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
2 t. salt
4 eggs, beaten
4 c. buttermilk
3/4 c. unsweetened apple sauce
In large mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add the buttermilk and applesauce. Mix thoroughly. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl. Add to liquid ingredients. Mix thoroughly, but don't over mix. Just until lumps are removed. Fry as you would for any pancakes. No fat is needed on a non-stick surface.
We used buttermilk that was left over from our butter making process a few days ago (that I talked about in a previous post). I'm not sure if that was the secret ingredient or not, but they were wonderful pancakes! You can substitute for the buttermilk by adding a few tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice to the milk and allowing it to curdle slightly.
Here's a pic of the wonderful pancakes.

Yes, hubby needs a haircut. The frugal woman of the house will get right on that, and I'm sure it will look like all the other frugal haircuts in the family. Here, frugal can read cheap, because we're really NOT living more on less here. I need to learn to give a haircut! Does anyone know of a good blog to learn from? :)
Be sure and tell us how you like the pancakes!
