Classic Corn Dodgers
This old-fashioned cross between pancakes and corn bread is best enjoyed while
backpacking with views of alpine meadows. Don’t forget the honey.
Before the trip, mix the dry ingredients together:

1 cup white flour
1 cup yellow corn meal
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup powdered milk
Put the dry mixture in a quart-size ziplock bag. When ready to cook, heat one
tablespoon of cooking oil in the bottom of a pan. Add straight into the dry ingredients
and mix well in the bag:

3 eggs
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 1/2 cups water
Cut one corner off the bag and squeeze about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan.
Cook until one side is golden and then flip. Serve with honey or syrup
