pancakes

So the other day the wife and I are in Smart and Final and I reach for some pancake mix. Usually I like to use the kind that you add your own egg and milk to..and ususally that is "Aunt Jemima".

This time, they only had the "add water only" type, so we bought it. I know..so far, this is really boring huh?

Well now, I tried those pancakes and they were just fine. Tasted wonderful. But then I got ta thinkin'...add water only? Where is my egg? Where is my milk? Oh, what they DO is in there in powdered/chemical form..but THEY are not in there. In fact..if you read the label...there are a LOT of things in there! Hrmmmm.

Time to break out the Joy of Cooking AND ask the Oracle Of Knowledge(Internet) about "pancakes".

Well wouldn't you know it...there is NOTHING to pancakes! Flour..baking powder..salt..sugar...and yes..THERE they are! EGGS and MILK! That's it!

No chemical additives to preserve other chemical additives. Just plain ol' pancakes. In fact, in my pursuits I found many people doing a little trick that my grandmother used to do where they separate the egg(s) and beat the whites and then fold the whites into the batter at the end. Makes for VERY fluffy pancakes and waffles!

(Speaking of waffles, I LOVE to take a couple of pieces of cooked bacon and put it IN the waffle mix right after putting it on the iron! YUMMERS!)


OK, so there IS no real point to this story. It's just pancakes, afterall....

Light...

fluffy...

homemade...

...pancakes.

Yum! When Matt was little and he wanted home made pancakes, he'd ask for "fresh pancakes."

Speaking of which there was an e-rumor going around that claimed one child died as a result of eating pancakes made from mix that was past it's expiration date. The rumor also claims another person went into respiratory arrest after eating them, but was saved by the husband who happened to be a firefighter. I checked this e-rumor on http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/p/pancakemix.h
tm
and while it is unproven, it could be true.

The story says that these people were allegeric to mold that had formed in the old pancake mix. Makes sense when you think about it. I know I tried to make pancakes from old mix a few months ago, and they didn't taste right. Matt and I threw them out without eating them.

Wow...something else to worry about. Strange that when I lived in Californai I couldn't keep any kind of pancake mix, flour, Bisquick or even cereal for very long. It would end up with little weevils in it...Yuck Extra protein...NOT!

Here in Vegas, where I have that kind of food for really long periods of time cause the kids aren't here to eat it..I never get weevils. Perhaps the dry heat here?

The mold idea gives me creeps, she said throwing out all flour type food in cupboard...

Did you know that spices should be regularly thrown out as well? They have bugs that grow in them too. They advise dumping the spice out on a paper towel, and if nithing moves, it is probably bug free...Yuck! Oh for the good old prehistoric days without canned or preservative foods...

I like the Krusteaz brand. Blueberry too. Just add water and seems to fill the bill, Bill lol Good for waffles. The nest part is my Mickey Mouse waffle maker that makes Mickey's head into a waffle...Fun. Add chocolate chips if Dylan is coming over too.

William Sonoma has incredible, but "costly" mixes. They are delicious, but the price!!!

I dont cook so found another use for my old spices...In particular BBQ and chili powder. I found if I sprinkle it around my violets the cats wont go near it. They would eat the flowers as fast as they bloomed before.

Flour is certainly a natural product that can go bad. BUT..what makes ME wonder is, what sort of chemicals the chemicals in pancake mix morph into!

Pre-made is not always good and is often more expensive than just making the thing yourself!

The protection from that is to keep your flour goods in the freezer.

If your spices have things growing in em, then yea..I would think that would be a good indicator that you have had them a LITTLE too long!

Rule of thumb on spices is, that if you haven't used it since last year...throw it out! They may or may not be "bad", but old spices taste like wood. In fact, in many countries, you get your spices fresh from a spice merchant..not the supermarket. And they are treated like fresh food. After awhile, if you don't use em, toss em!

Make yer own and they will not only cost less than the William Sonoma..they will cost less than the Krusteaz! (Which btw, has MSG and thus cannot come into this house.)


As to the Mickey Mouse waffle iron..I dunno...

..show me a Larry Levy waffle iron and I will be impressed!!!

Diet pancakes? It can be done! Let's break it down..you have flour, salt a LITTLE sugar..eggs and milk. (The milk can be fat free.) Seems to me that the worst part is what goes ON the pancake. You don't HAVE to use syrup...fresh fruit is GREAT on a pancake. OK, so there are carbs..but not a lot of calories if you watch it.

Hey, Greorge Foreman grillin' is cookin!

Saw a bit on Sunday Morning where Bobby Flay said he is blown away when someone tells him that they bought his book..and they went home and tried his recipes on their George Foreman!

BTW...try grillin' a peach (without the pit). Those are GOOD!!!!!

A while ago I found a sugar-free syrup that has VERY few calories and honestly ain't bad at all. I got it at Pavilions. I just checked my fridge so I could tell you what it is, but I appear to have run out and not restocked... I need to get to the store.

Now yer thinkin!

My grandmother used to make her own syrup from carmelized sugar and such. I am not familiar with all of the sugar and sweet substitutes but I am willing to bet that either the stuff that Lon mentioned or some home made syrup could be concocted...

I dont remember EVER having syrup out of a bottle at home. Mother made it with sugar and water and added maple flavoring. I did the same when the kids were growing up. Hardly sugar free but sure a lot cheaper.

When I had pancakes as a kid, maple syrup was considered QUITE a luxury. I like maple syrup...but I like a good berry jam better!

My problem is that I grew up with margarine...so butter on pancakces tastes a little strange to me now. But...better butter than margarine these days!

I grew up with margarine too. Do you remeber squeezing the bag so the coloring was spread through out it?

The stuff I've tried is Maple Grove Farms Cozy Cottage Sugar Free Syrup with "natural and artificial maple flavor". It has 25 calories per serving (1/4 cup), no fat, 7g carbs (but the front label says "1 Gram Net Carb", whatever that means).

Pavilions also had another similar one under the brand name Spring Tree. It has 30 calories per 1/4 cup serving, no fat, 12g carbs.

The only difference I could see between the two in the ingredients list is that the Maple Grove Farms one uses Sucralose (Splenda) and the Spring Tree one has Aspartame. Otherwise, they look like the same thing.

I heard of that..but by the time I was of thinkin' age, the margarine came in a cube, like butter...already pre-yellowed.

..and, it came from the Edgemar milk man too! Who also introduced us to this new product called "yogurt".

And yes, I do STILL have a milkman! Alta Dena..brings us our milk twice a week!

My first question is......How in the heck did they get all those words on the label? LOL Iffin I gotta choose chemicals Id choose Splenda over Aspartame...

It was just a standard nutrition label. You know how small they print on those things...

Me too. Besides the Aspartame one had slightly more calories and carbs. But, I still don't understand that "One Net Gram Carb" claim when the nutritional panel says 7g. I'll have to ask Dana (the nutrition and diet expert in the Cecil Adams newsgroup) about that.

Who knows. Ive heard they base their calories/nutrients on a different number. One is based on a 2000 calorie diet another on less.

I dont understand how they could personally deliver it cheaper. Id say this is the best bargain going.....if you like milk.
