Foodie Friday – Father’s Day Pancakes
As Father’s day approaches I am struck with a memory of cooking with my dad. One of the first times I remember participating in cooking was with my dad, making pancakes. The messy, mayham of making pancakes on Sunday mornings became a tradition with my dad. To this day, pancakes are still one of my favorite fallback meals. Over time I have tried many recipes. Following is my favorite whole wheat pancake recipe. Try these out on your dad this Sunday! Happy Father’s day!
Info: Using whole wheat flour will add fibre. Often, whole wheat pancake recipes fall flat, literally. They are not so palatable and very heavy. I find that using more baking powder solves this problem. Baking powder works best when added in as the last ingredient as well.
Inspiration: My dad! Recipe from Dietitians of Canada Cook Great Food 2001.
1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
1 ¼ milk
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp vegetable oil
½ tsp vanilla
1. In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
2. In a separate bowl (I often use my glass measuring cup), beat together milk, egg, oil and vanilla.
3. Add liquid ingredients to dry, mixing until almost smooth.
4. Over medium-hot skillet or griddle, pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Flip when bubbles start to break on top (1 1/2- 2 min).
5. Serve with your families favorite toppings.
Results: This is my absolute fav whole wheat pancake recipe. I hope your family enjoys it too.
