Fluffy Buttermilk Whole Wheat Pancakes

By Unknown - 10:32 AM

Is there a more perfect breakfast at home on a Sunday than pancakes?
When I have time to make a fuss over breakfast I make these.
They have become one of my all time favorites.
For me they pack the perfect combination of flavors & textures.
Light, thick, fluffy, buffy, buttery, airy and just heavenly delicious.
It's a beautiful combination that you seriously need in your life.

Let's get started, shall we?

This recipe is adapted from Better Homes & Gardens.
It yields 10 - 12 standard-size pancakes or 8 large-size pancakes.
You can halve, double or triple it as desired.
To feed a couple hungry adults you need the following:
1 cup Whole Wheat flour
1 cup All Purpose flour
1 tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cups buttermilk (well shaken)
1/4 cup almond milk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil*
a splash of vanilla extract

In two separate bowls, mix dry (first seven) ingredients together and mix wet (last five) ingredients together.
*use vegetable or canola oil if you prefer or just because you don't have coconut oil available.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix until combined.
Do not over mix otherwise the pancakes will taste rubbery, batter should be slightly lumpy.

Heat the lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet.
Pour 1/4 cup batter on the hot griddle (for standard-size).
Pour more than 1/2 cup batter on the hot griddle (for large size).
Add fresh blueberries (or your choice of fruits or walnuts) on top of the batter.

Cook until bubbles begin to form on surface & underside is golden ~2 minutes.
Flip over and cook for another ~2 mins until golden brown.

Serve warm with butter and maple syrup. And a tall glass of mimosa if you fancy.
Top with fresh fruits or sliced bananas if you want to snap a pretty photo for your Instagram friends to drool over.

Chris loves his blueberry buttermilk pancakes.
I prefers my walnuts buttermilk pancakes.
But we both love to slather our pancakes with light amber, pure maple syrup.

Get comfortable in your pajamas and try & stop yourself from murmuring "mmhmmhhmm delish!"
Believe me, I've tried numerous recipes, made many modifications, and finally found the one.
This is the most fantastical, delightful, lovely pancake recipe you will want to bookmark.
