No Frills Pancake Recipe
1 cup all-purpose flour (can use wheat)
1 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl baking powder
⅛ tsp salt (a grandma’s pinch)
1 cup milk (dairy or nut milk)
2 Tbl vegetable oil or melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk together dry ingredients in a bowl then add all wet ingredients and mix using a spatula. You want all ingredients incorporated but not smooth or over mixed. Why? Overmixing creates too much gluten and will result in a rubbery or tough pancake. The less you mix the more tender and light your pancakes will be! Measure out ½ cup batter onto oiled skillet, griddle, or frying pan.
*If you want to use buttermilk reduce baking powder to 1 Tbl and add ¼ tsp baking soda.
Carrot Cake Pancakes
1 cup all-purpose or whole wheat flour (I love Montana Wheat Natural White)
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp ginger
2 Tbl sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk (add 1 Tbl apple cider vinegar to milk, mix, and let sit for 10 minutes)
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
4 carrots finely shredded
Shred carrots using a microplane or box grater. Set aside. In a bowl whisk together dry ingredients and spices. Mix together buttermilk, applesauce, and vanilla then add to dry ingredient bowl. Using your spatula fold in wet ingredients until no large dry patches remain. Add in shredded carrots and continue to fold ingredients together until carrots look well incorporated. Measure out ½ cup batter onto oiled skillet, griddle, or frying pan.
*Adding in pecans to the mix gives the pancakes and even more carrot cake flavor!
**When using buttermilk or other acidic liquids in baked goods you need to use baking soda. Why? The baking soda neutralizes the acid so that the baking powder can use its magic to make your goodies rise. Without neutralizing the acid your finished product will have an “off” flavor to it from the baked in acid.
