Mark Boughton PrintEmail This mix makes 16 cups, enough for 8 (1-pint) jars or bags. Look for powdered buttermilk in the baking section of the supermarket. These pancakes are full of grainy flavors with a good wallop of sesame. Ingredients 1 cup sesame seeds1 cup old-fashioned oats3 cups whole-wheat flour2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour2 1/4 cups stone-ground yellow or white cornmeal1 cup sugar1 (12-ounce) container buttermilk powder5 tablespoons baking powder2 tablespoons baking soda2 tablespoons salt Instructions Toast sesame seeds in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Stir constantly, until fragrant and light brown, about 4 minutes. Immediately remove from the stove. Pour into a bowl to cool. Place oats into a food processor and pulse until powdery. Add sesame seeds and pulse to grind. (Mixture will be mostly powdery with a few whole seeds here and there. Don’t over-grind, or you’ll end up releasing too much oil). Transfer oatmeal mixture to a large bowl. Add flours, cornmeal, sugar and buttermilk powder. Stir well. Sift baking powder, baking soda and salt over flour mixture. Stir well. Transfer into 1-pint jars or zip-top bags. To prevent rancidity, both from the whole-grain flours and sesame seeds, store in the freezer. To make pancakes: Beat 2 eggs with 1 cup water in a medium bowl. Whisk in 2 cups pancake mix and 4 teaspoons vegetable oil; do not overbeat. Heat a heavy nonstick or well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Ladle in batter. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Makes 4 (4-inch) pancakes. To make waffles: Whisk together 2 egg yolks (reserve whites) and 1 cup water. Whisk in 2 cups pancake mix and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil just until well combined. Preheat a waffle iron. Beat egg whites until stiff; gently fold into batter. Pour batter onto waffle iron, following directions, and cook until done, about 4 to 6 minutes. Recipe by Crescent Dragonwagon.
