Hearty Hotcakes

Combine in mixer bowl:
3 cups white flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, freshly milled (you can use 1/2 cup hard wheat and 1/2 cup soft wheat if you'd like)
1 1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cup flaked whole oats or oatmeal
3/4 cup cream of wheat
6 Tbsp cup sugar
6 Tbsp cup oat bran
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Combine, then add all at once to dry ingredients, mixing just until moistened:

3 eggs
6 cups kefir, buttermilk or soured milk
9 Tbsp melted butter (or coconut oil, etc)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Adjust thickness of batter with white flour. It should be rather thick, if you like fluffy pancakes.

Let sit a few minutes to thicken while heating griddle. Scoop out 1/4 to 1/2 cup onto hot cast iron griddle. Cook till edges are set and bubbles are poping throughout. Sprinkle with fruit or chocolate chips, if desired. Flip carefully and cook another couple of minutes, until cooked through. Serve hot. I normally spread them with homemade jam.
