Saint Alfonzo's Buttermilk Pancake Mix
By Peter Sheppard, The New Fermenting Gourmet

This is the exact recipe for the pancakes that were served at the breakfast Sunday morning after the Sunfest at Sage Hill group camp.

Dry Mix Ingredients
Yield: 19 cups of Dry Pancake Mix
16 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 cups Sugar
3 tbls.Salt
3 tbls.Baking Powder
1 1/2 tbls. Baking Soda
1 1/2 tbls. Ground Cardamom


Using a large wire colander, sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl.

Stir with a fork to ensure the ingredients are completely mixed.

Spoon up the mix into a large airtight container.

Store closed in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.

Pancake Ingredients
Yield: 10-12 pancakes
1 cup Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Mix
3 tbls. Oil
1Egg, lightly beaten
1 cupButtermilk (use the Soured Milk variation if you have no buttermilk)

Put the cup of pancake mix into a bowl and add the oil and beaten egg, stirring to combine.

Add a little buttermilk and stir it into the batter, continue to add the milk until most of the lumps are gone and the batter is smooth.

DO NOT OVERBEAT! Allow the batter to sit for at least 10 minutes before making the pancakes. This will allow the chemical reaction from the acid in the buttermilk and the baking soda to take effect.

Heat the griddle to 375 degrees F, and wipe a little oil onto the surface.

Spoon the pancakes from a 1/3 cup measuring cup for uniform size.

When the bubbles have formed on the uncooked side of the pancake and it is no longer glossy they are ready to turn.

Serve with butter and maple, or your favorite flavored syrups - YUM!

Blueberry: To make Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes add 1/2 cup thawed blueberries to 1 cup mixed batter that has stood for 10 minutes.
Soured Milk Pancakes: Put 1 Tbl. white vinegar into a measuring cup and fill it with sweet milk to 1 cup, whisk and pour gradually in the batter. This will keep the milk from curdling.
