Recipe: whole wheat pancakes featuring farm-fresh ingredients!

These pancakes are a great way to feature really farm-fresh, high-quality ingredients. In this recipe, I'm using our fresh eggs, lard, and sometimes fresh raw milk from a nearby organic dairy farm. My 3 sons sure love these!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

-1 egg
-1 cup whole wheat flour
-3/4 cup milk
-2 tablespoons fat, original recipe calls for oil (I use the excellent, more natural lard from our pigs, and when using lard I cut the amount in half, it goes further than oil does).
-1 tablespoon sugar
-3 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt

The secret to fluffy pancakes is to add the flour last, and once the flour is in... barely stir it. Just enough to mix it, lumps are fine.

Make sure to add the eggs first, and beat them well. Then add the rest of the wet ingredients, followed by the baking powder, and the flour last.

I always double this recipe, and leftovers heat well.
