Pancakes (from Laurel’s Kitchen)
2 cups whole wheat flour
½ cup wheat germ (or substitute more flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 ½ to 3 cups fresh milk
2 tablespoons oil

Stir together all of the dry ingredients.  Beat the eggs lightly and combine with the milk, then add to the dry ingredients and stir briefly.  Stir in the oil.

Heat the griddle.  It should be hot enough so that when you sprinkle water drops on the surface, they dance.  Pour the batter onto griddle by large spoonfuls. Cook over medium heat, turning once when bubbles come to the surface and pop and the edges are slightly dry.

Below is a fun little rhyme to memorize and recite while you are cooking together!

Mix a Pancake
(Author: Christina G. Rossetti - 1830-1894)
Mix a pancake,
Stir a pancake,
Pop it in the pan;
Fry the pancake;
Toss the pancake,
Catch it if you can.

After breakfast you can cuddle up and read this darling book!

Here's another fun pancake book,  this one is by Eric Carle
