|½ cup||All-purpose flour|
|½ cup||All whole wheat flour|
|1½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
Utensils Required: Large frying pan, pot holder, measuring cups, measuring spoons, large mixing bowl, wooden spoon, small mixing bowl, whisk, spatula, ovenproof plate, oven mitts.
Yield: 20 pancakes Prep: 20 minutes Heat 2 tb of the butter in the pan over medium heat until it melts. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
Place both flours, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl and stir together with a wooden spoon.
Break the egg into a small mixing bowl. Add the melted butter and the milk and whisk together very well.
Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until the batter is quite smooth and has almost no lumps.
Preheat the oven to 200F.
Melt a quarter of the remaining butter in the frying pan over medium heat.
Holding the handle of the pan with a pot holder, tilt the pan so that the melted butter coats the bottom evenly.
To make a Teddy Bear pancake, spoon 1 tb of the batter into the pan for the body and then add 1 tsp above the body for the head. With another tsp of the batter, make the ears, hands and feet. Make as many pancakes as will fit in the pan without touching.
Cook the pancakes over medium heat until you can see bubbles on the top, about 2 minutes; then lift up one edge of a pancake with the spatula and look to see if the bottom is golden brown. If it is brown, flip it over and cook until the second side is golden brown, about 2 more minutes.
Remove the cooked pancakes from the pan, place them on the oven proof plate, and set the plate in the oven to keep the pancakes warm until you are ready to eat.
Melt more butter in the pan as needed and make more pancakes until the batter is gone.
When you are ready to serve, put on the oven mitts and remove the plate from the oven.
These pancakes are delicious served with applesauce that has been sweetened with a touch of honey.
