I have a good go to recipe for pancakes. I posted it back in March. But in an attempt to soak more of my grains, I decided to tweak the recipe ever so slightly. Fortunately the result was way better than the original recipe I was using.
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 cups of keifer or yogurt 2 tablespoons of melted butter
2 tablespoons of honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.
Mix the flour and keifer or yogurt in a bowl and allow it to sit overnight, covered. I have been using my homemade keifer, I REALLY recommend it. Keifer is runnier than yogurt. It is more like buttermilk. Which makes it very well suited to cooking. I have used keifer in everything from smoothies to scones to potato salad to these pancakes. Definitely start making your own keifer! There really is nothing to be afraid of.
The next morning, add the remaining ingredients. The batter should be kind of bubbly. Heat your griddle and prepare pancakes as you normally would.
I found this recipe to be lighter and fluffier. The cakes also were thinner which helped them cook faster. I have found that my previous recipe sometimes yielded a thick batter and a gummy pancake. Said pancake took FOREVER to cook. Boo. These were more like what I expect and they use far less of the baking powder and soda than a normal recipe.
