My Side of the Mountain author Jean Craighead George also published a cookbook of her mountain favorites--Acorn Pancakes, Dandelion Salad and 33 Other Recipes. This recipe for acorn pancakes comes from this book.

Ingredients:  (1) one-half cup of white flour; (2) one cup of acorn flour; (3) two and one-half teaspoons of baking powder; (4) one-quarter teaspoon of salt; (5) one egg--beaten; (6) 10 ounces of milk; (7) three tablespoons of butter. You will also need butter, margarine or oil for your skillet or frying pan.

Directions: You will need two separate bowls and a frying pan. Mix the white flour, acorn flour, baking powder and salt in one bowl. In the second bowl, combine the butter, egg and milk. Combine all of the mixtures together and stir lightly. Spoon the mixture onto the hot skillet. Flip once after bubbles appear on the surface.

The author suggests serving the finished product with "maple syrup or wild jellies."
