We are cereal for breakfast kind of people and we like it that way. Earlier, I used to make pancakes for my son’s lunch box at least once a week. On those days, me and my husband would have it for breakfast with syrup. Its been quite a while since I made pancakes. But I don’t think I will wait that long to make it again.
These pancakes are easy to make. There is a hint of orange and cardamom now and then. Next time I might try to add some juice also to increase the flavor. The recipe is adapted from Pam Anderson’s The Perfect recipe for losing weight and eating right. I have already tried the basic pancake recipe before, now I am planning to give the different flavor options a try.
This recipe goes to this week’s Cooking from Cook Book Challenge. Please follow the link to know more about the event.
Recipe adapted from: The Perfect recipe for losing weight and eating right
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 5 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 1/2 cups butter milk
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix all the dry ingredients from flour to ground cardamom in a big bowl.
- Microwave milk and buttermilk for about 30 seconds to stop it from being really cold. If you are using them at room temperature, you can skip this.
- Whisk the eggs with oil and vanilla. Add it to the milk and buttermilk.
- Pour wet ingredients into the dry flour mix. Use a whisk to mix everything until you don’t see any dry lumps.
- Heat a skillet and brush it lightly with oil. Add 3 tablespoons or even 1/4 cup batter and let it cook, about 2-3 minutes. Flip it and cook until it turns golden brown. Cook in batches or one at a time. Serve with syrup.
Sorry about too many pictures in the post, I know that most of them look alike. Yet I seem to be incapable to restricting it to just three. I am trying to curb my enthusiasm, so please bear with me. I promise, I will improve.
