Pancakes have a way of slowing down a Saturday morning. It feels that all too often, the morning gets rolling and you head outside. Before you know it you’ve eaten lunch and are turning the corner towards the evening. Start the day with some pancakes and you’ve got an instant slow motion button for the morning. You’ll find time to read the paper, savor rather than mainline your coffee and even talk to your breakfast companions.
If you’re the type to only reach for a box of premixed pancake batters such as Bisquick for a camping trip or vacation, I understand. I’d encourage you to revisit that stance the next time you are in the store on a Friday and thinking about taking it easy on Saturday. Grab a bag of Stewart’s Pancake Mix and start your day off right. The mix is as easy as any other, with a basic recipe and “Stewart’s” recipe that calls for yogurt and apple sauce. We’ve made it both ways (including subbing kefir for the yogurt) and you can’t go wrong. Stewart’s version did produce the lighter, fluffier pancake, but then again the Sapbucket household generally favors that type of thicker-fluffy pancake. The distinguishing factor about Stewart’s mix is the blend of poppy, sunflower and flax seeds. The seeds add just a hint of crunch and nuttiness, a really nice hearty flavor that conveys a true sense of being homemade.
Verdict: Use this mix to slow down your Saturday with some delicious, creative pancakes.
