Here are our visting teachings gifts for the month of September. I wanted to do something with apples...and since the cooling weather makes Fall my favorite time to cook, I came up with this idea.
Here is the recipe:
Layer in quart canning jars: 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/4 tsp. salt, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 3/4 cup chopped dried apples, 3/4 cup golden raisins.
I used some homespun fabric between the canning lid and ring and attached the recipe for the pancakes with twine. I'm gonna make some up this week for my family, too!
Apple Orchard Pancakes
1 jar Apple Orchard Pancake Mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. butter
Place contents of jar in a large bowl. Beat eggs in a medium bowl; stir in milk and oil. Add egg mixture to pancake mix; stir until just blended. Lightly coat griddle with butter. Heat over medium heat until griddle is hot. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto griddle for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form and bottom of pancakes are brown; turn and cook about 2 minutes more, or until cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve pancakes with maple syrup, if desired.
Makes about 20 pancakes.
