1multigrainpancake.jpg picture by nancerose

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup unbleached flour

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup large flake rolled oats

1/4 cup yellow cornmeal

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg, fork-beaten

1  1/2 cups buttermilk**

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine first 10 ingredients in large bowl.  Make a well in centre.

Combine next 4 ingredients in medium bowl.  Add to well.  Stir until just moistened. Batter will be lumpy.  Preheat griddle to medium-high.  Reduce heat to medium.  Spray with cooking spray.   Pour batter onto griddle, using about 1/3 cup for each pancake.  Cook for about 2 minutes until bubbles form on top and edges appear dry.  Turn pancake over.  Cook for about 2 minutes until browned.  Remove to plate.  Cover to keep warm.  Repeat with remaining batter, spraying griddle with cooking spray if necessary to prevent sticking.  Makes about 10 pancakes.

Note:  If you don't have an electric griddle, use a large frying pan. 

**To make soured milk measure 1 tbsp lemon juice into a 1 cup liquid measure.  Add enough milk to make 1 cup.  Stir.  Let stand for 1 minute.

Cat Poop Cookies
10 years ago

This is great. It's from my friend Kat Yazzie's blog.

Prep Time: Less than 30 min

There are two flavors: chocolate (dark brown), and gingerbread (light brown).

"I seldom measure carefully so amounts may need adjustment, especially on flavoring. The cookies are dense and not very sweet. This is necessary so that they will keep their shape during baking. If you use white flour or sugar they may be tastier but they won't look like %#&!*%." Chocolate ingredients:

½ cup honey
2/3 cup (1 and 1/3 stick) butter, margarine or lard
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla or peppermint extract
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
Grape-Nuts™ cereal

Gingerbread ingredients:
¼ cup honey
¼ cup molasses
2/3 cup (1 and 1/3 stick) butter, margarine or lard
1 egg
2 and 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
spices: ginger, cinnamon and cloves to taste (maybe ½ tsp each)
Grape-Nuts™ cereal

coconut (tapeworms)
chocolate chips
butterscotch chips
peanut butter chips
cooked spaghetti or ramen noodles (roundworms)

To make:
Microwave the honey till it bubbles (about 1 minute).

Add the butter, (I've been told using lard makes for a more realistic texture and softer cookie) and the molasses, if any.

Add the egg.

Mix well; then mix in all the other stuff. Add mix-ins of your choice to some or all of the batter.

Chill 1 hour in the freezer or several hours in the fridge.

Roll dough logs of random length and the diameter of cat poops. Roll logs in grape-nuts and bake at 350 degrees till done (maybe 10 to 15 minutes but with my flaky oven you never know). Note: someone with a reliable oven says it's closer to 20 minutes for him. (thanks Paul!)

Serve in a disposable cat litter box on a bed of Grape-Nuts™ cereal, with a new, unused cat litter scoop. I hear you get lovely effects by decorating the box and scoop with melted chocolate or pudding. I imagine brown sugar might work as a substitute for the new clumping litters, but I haven't tried it. I've been told that mixing brown sugar with the Grape-Nuts™ "sweetens up the cookie a bit while still looking truly hideous."

This recipe worked especially well at the Halloween party where the table was already decorated with plastic flies.
Thanks, Kat!
