Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Make do Monday

Welcome friends!  Over the next couple of week I will be sharing how to and make dos.  Today I'm sharing some homemade pancake mix.  I found this many years ago in an Amish Cook book.  Easy to put together and make very light and fluffy pancakes.  Plus it is easy on the wallet!

Pancake Mix

12 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
4 cups milk powder
2 tablespoons salt
3/4 cup baking powder

Mix together well all of the above ingredients and store the mixture in a tightly sealed container.

To Make Pancakes

To make pancakes combine the following ingredients.

1 1/2 cups of the pancake mix
1 egg, beaten
1 cup water
2 tablespoons salad oil

Mix together and cook on a hot griddle, serve with butter and homemade syrup.  Here is the link to the syrup I made last summer.
