Oatmeal Pancakes!

I have this really awesome cookbook that I purchased at a yard sale back while I was in high school - if I recall correctly, it was $5 for a whole box (and I still have the Scandinavian cookbook that was in there, too!) It's the Second Edition, published in 1956, and I still use it at least once a month.

I generally make the "Favorite Pancakes" on page 87, but I'd been eyeing up the Oatmeal Pancakes from Mrs. Robert Rypinski of Pasadena, California who says, "My two boys love them.  They're not a bit rich, but they taste so delicious everyone raves about them."  I love reading old cookbooks!

I made them on Saturday morning, and they were a big hit with the whole family!  They were very filling (my kids usually eat 3-4 regular pancakes, but only had 2 of these) - I've been microwaving the leftovers and having a leisurely breakfast the past two mornings after taking the kiddos to school ;)  They went together pretty easily; the batter was kind of a strange consistency, and I was worried that the oatmeal would give it a strange lumpy texture, but no worries.

Oatmeal Pancakes
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cups buttermilk
Allow to sit for 10 min or so, then beat in:
1/2 c flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp b. soda
1 twp salt
2 eggs, beaten

Makes approximately twelve 4" pancakes.

I ate mine with bananas, almonds, and maple flavored agave syrup.  Yum!

You are not the only one who loves to read old cookbooks!! I have the one from the Mennonite church my mom grew up in and it is awesome. Directions like 'bake in a moderate oven' and giving no measurements.
