Deb's Old Fashioned Oatmeal Pancakes


2 c. old fashioned oats
2 tbsp. sugar
2 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. baking powder
2 large eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted and cooled
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/3 c dark seedless raisins
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. flour


Mix oats and buttermilk in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate. When ready to cook, beat in eggs and butter. Stir in raisins. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to oat mixture and stir briskly just until moistened. If possible, let batter stand 20 minutes or so before cooking. Heat a lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle for a "test" cake. If batter seems too thick, add more buttermilk, one tbsp. at a time (Up to 3 tbsp.). Cook until a few bubbles appear on tops; turn to brown other side. Makes 18 pancakes.
