Aunt Jolynn's Wheat Pancakes

The first time I made these pancakes as a newlywed I asked the Hot Italian, "Would you like one pancake or two?" He looked very puzzled and replied, "Probably 5 or 6."

I made a 1/2 batch, 3 large pancakes. He ate two and was satisfied, just as I expected. These aren't your average Bisquick pancakes, they've got some staying power. They're also pretty dang delicious.

I grew up eating these pancakes several times a week. My mom not only made pancakes most of the time (cheaper than cereal she says), she also made her own maple syrup. She had Bisquick and Mrs. Butterworths beat by a long shot!
Here is the recipe for the mix:
8 cups whole wheat flour
7 cups white flour
1/2 cup baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon salt
And the pancakes (makes about 5-6 large pancakes):
2 cups milk
2 eggs
2 cups mix (above)
1/4 cup oil
I cook them on a 350 degree griddle. You can tell when they are ready to flip when you start to see bubbles form on the uncooked side.
