Pancakes: Kentucky Wheat Makes Breakfast Fun!


Did you know that the wheat grown in Kentucky makes excellent pancakes? Kentucky farmers grow soft red winter wheat, which is used most often in cookies, crackers, flatbreads and baking mixes (including pancakes). 

Most of the wheat grown in Kentucky is sold to Siemer Milling in Hopkinsville, where it is milled into flour. The flour is sold to companies that make pancake and other breakfast baked good mixes. 

If you are looking to enjoy pancakes made with Kentucky wheat, check out Krusteaz-branded mixes from your local grocery store, or visit your nearest McDonald's or Cracker Barrel.
