whole wheat pancakes

12 Mar

Few years ago, a friend of mine made me pancakes when I was visiting her and her family.  She made these delicious pancakes that she said she got from Alton Brown.  Since I bought this huge bag of whole wheat flour to make the coconut muffins, I thought of experimenting with mixing whole wheat and all purpose flour together.

This recipe turned out really well.  Nice, fluffy, and tasty.  Although, I made  a slight mistake of putting a little too much more salt and baking powder than the recipe calls for.  I really shouldn’t be doing math in the morning when I just woke up.

This is a great basic pancake recipe that one can create wonders with such as adding chocolate chips, blueberries, etc.  Maybe one can even add macadamia nuts, unsweetened shredded coconut, and even substitute coconut oil instead of the butter?  I’ll have to experiment with this idea next time.

Whole Wheat Pancake Flour Mix

Recipe adapted from Alton Brown

4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar

Mix all together.  Keep in a well sealed container.  Use within 3 months.

Pancake Batter Recipe

2 eggs separated
2 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups of the Pancake Mix above
butter to grease the pan

Beat the egg yolks and buttermilk together.

Beat the egg whites and melted butter.  Make sure the butter is slightly cooled.

Combine the buttermilk and melted butter mixture together.

Combine with wet and dry ingredients together.  Do not over mix.  Cook over a buttered skillet or griddle.
