Cream of Wheat Pancakes

We have been enjoying this pancake recipe for a couple of months now as a change of pace to our usual recipe! The Cream of Wheat also provides an excellent source of iron as an added bonus!
To start out add to a large mixing bowl:

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup Cream of Wheat (uncooked)

2 T. sugar

1 T. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Then add the wet ingredients:

1 egg

1 cup milk

2 tsp. oil

Then let the kids beat with a wire whisk until well blended, then let the mixture stand for a few minutes (about 5) before cooking.
Then pour the batter onto a hot griddle or skillet and cook until the top looks bubbly then flip and brown the other side.

The kids and I really enjoy these! We double the recipe to make sure we have enough!! I really like the texture and the slight cinnamon flavor. If you add blueberries they taste just like blueberry muffins!

They get a thumbs up from the kids!!!
