People Pancakes

1 egg, beaten

1 1/2 cups milk

1 cup biscuit baking mix

1/4 cup wheat germ

1/4 cup salad oil

raisins, banana slices, or cereal

powdered sugar (optional)

  1. Blend egg and milk together.

  2. Add biscuit mix, and beat until smooth. Stir in wheat germ and oil.

  3. Heat griddle over medium heat, and grease if necessary.

  4. Spoon two to four table-spoonfuls batter onto middle of griddle. Quickly turn spoon over and push out nose, chin, curly hair or braids. When bubbles start to appear on pancake, carefully flip it over with turner.

  5. While pancake finishes cooking, add raisins, banana slices, or cereal for eyes and mouth. Powdered sugar could be used to color hair. Use your imagination and see whom you can create!
