Wheat

If you have wheat in your storage but aren't using it much, here is a fun way to start. No grinder required. These pancakes are delicious and easy to make. Try these with one of the syrups listed below. You may even want to make more pancakes!
Blender Wheat Pancakes
Makes 6-8 pancakes
1 c. milk (or 1/3 c. non-fat dry milk and 1 c. water)
1 c. uncooked whole wheat
2 eggs
2 T. oil
2 t. baking powder
2 T. honey or sugar
1/2 t. salt
Put milk and wheat in blender. Blend on highest speed for 4-5 minutes or until batter is smooth. Add and blend on low, eggs, oil, baking powder, honey and salt. Pour from blender jar onto hot griddle. Flip when bubbles pop and create holes.

Buttermilk Syrup
2 cubes butter
1 c. buttermilk or sour milk
1 t. soda
1 c. sugar
2 T. Karo Syrup
2 t. vanilla
Combine butter, sugar, milk and Karo in saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add soda and vanilla. Fresh milk can be soured by adding 1 T. lemon juice or vinegar to measuring cup and filling to 1 cup with milk.

Peach Syrup
1 quart peaches
1 c. sugar
Blend together in blender till smooth. Heat till sugar is dissolved.

Fresh Strawberry Syrup
ourbestbites.com
1 pint strawberries
1/3 c. white sugar
1 t. almond extract (my favorite) or vanilla extract
Wash and cut strawberries in half or fourths; combine berries, sugar, and extract in medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for five minutes,stirring or breaking berries up with a wooden spoon constantly. After five minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly (if you have a glass blender jar) and a lot (if you have a plastic blender jar). When cool enough, transfer mixture to blender and pulse until desired consistency is reached. Serve over pancakes or waffles, ice cream, brownies etc. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.

Thank you! I consider this a bit of Christmas in May! I wish I would've known about this sight sooner! You are amazing.
