The boys loved these pancakes from the Sunset Breads, Step by Step. The batter needs to be partially mixed the night before, but then it goes quickly enough in the morning.
You Will Need:
2 cups regular rolled oats
(about) 2 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup AP flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon EACH baking powder and baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I omitted this)
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a bowl, combine the oats and 2 cups of milk. Cover, and chill overnight.
Next Day: In a bowl, beat eggs lightly and add to the oat mixture. Add butter and raisins. Stir just until blended. Sift together dry ingredients and add to mixture. If batter seems too thick, add more buttermilk (I needed about 3 tablespoons more).
Preheat griddle and grease lightly. Over medium heat (I had to go much lower as cast iron gets really hot, fast) spoon batter-about 1/3 cup. onto surface. Spread out into circles, and cook until bubbly and appear dry. Flip, and cook until done.
