Whole Wheat Pancakes
I was going to say that this is not becoming a food blog but I can’t really commit to that because I love making and photographing food and lately I’ve been drawn more to blogs that offer me useful information so I may be posting more recipes or links to recipes I love. Today, I’m giving you my recipe for easy delicious whole wheat pancakes. Enjoy!
2 cups whole wheat flour (fresh ground is best of course)
1 ½ cups milk
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
Heat a griddle, cast-iron skillet or non-stick pan. I use a cool-touch griddle heated to 375F. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until they’re pretty well mixed and mostly smooth. I give the eggs a stir before adding the other ingredients but it’s not necessary.
Grease the pan as needed. I use cooking spray but butter will be just fine if you like the taste of deliciousness. Use your ¼ measure from the vegetable oil to spoon batter onto your pans. Cook until golden brown on the bottom. Then flip and cook the other side. Top with fruit, peanut butter, yogurt, applesauce or syrup but probably not all at once.
If your family likes to mow food like mine does, you can double this. A single batch makes about 12 pancakes and you can reheat the leftovers the next morning or as a snack.
