Whole Wheat Pancakes


Whole Wheat Pancakes
I love making pancakes for my girls on the weekends. Making a HUGE batch only takes a little more time – I pop the extras in the freezer and have pancakes for busy weekday mornings.

3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons sugar

2 cups low fat buttermilk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
Additional butter for greasing pan or griddle

Toppings: butter, fresh fruit, jam, maple syrup

In a large bowl combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Whisk well. In a large measuring cup or medium bowl whisk together buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine.

Heat and grease a pan or griddle over medium heat. Pour about 3 tablespoons of batter and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve with desired toppings.

Yield: makes about 24 pancakes

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing
    a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!
