Tinfoil Chef: "Cream of Wheat Griddle Cakes"
Welcome again to "Tinfoil Chef " where I'd like to feature healthy recipes for square meals on meager pockets. Have you ever been in the mood for breakfast when it was supper time? Maybe you've stopped at Denny's or IHOP after breakfast hours and caved in for a Grand Slam Breakfast for lunch.

This weeks recipe I made up for an elderly couple that I care for here in Savannah who both have special diets. These Griddle Cakes or pancakes came out so yummy that I have to share.

There is also an extra bonus as you can make up a double batch and freeze little mini stacks of four cakes in a Ziploc Sandwich bag as individual/microwaveable servings. A great time saver for those on the go and a very economic way to put a hot breakfast on the table.

-Non-stick spray
-1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
-1 1/2 cups milk (your choice buttermilk, 2%, Soy, Lactaid)
-1/3 cup instant Cream of Wheat (dry)
-1 egg
-1/3 cup sugar
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp Vanilla

Preheat a skillet over medium heat and apply a spritz of nonstick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until smooth. Pour the batter by 1/4 cup portions into the hot pan and cook pancakes for 1-2 minutes per side or until brown. Repeat with remaining batter. Serves 4-6

Total Cost: $2.16
approximately .36 cents a person.
Prep Time: 20 minutes

Great served with fresh fruit or berries, maple syrup and butter or make a Grand Slam breakfast out of it with eggs, bacon, sausage and all the fixin's.

    Yummy. I have to go to the store and buy some Cream of Wheat. I think I have everything else :-)

    I will try that. Have you made the pancake recipe on the side of the Jiffy cornbread mix box? Mmmmmm.

    I don't know what Cream of Wheat is but I don't like the sounds of it. The recipe, however, looks quite tasty!
