100% Whole Wheat Pancakes

I found this recipe printed in the Rushville Republican on November 23, 1939.  I love the flavor of whole wheat pancakes, so I generally buy whole wheat.  I made this recipe for breakfast this morning and my kids loved them.  I used honey instead of sugar.  I did have to add about 3 tablespoons of water to thin the batter, it was too thick when I started.

Making your own pancakes from scratch is so easy and CHEAP.  I figured this recipe with the honey instead of sugar cost me $1.03 for the whole recipe.  That’s about 26 cents per person.
