Multi grain orange pancakes


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


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients from flour to ground cardamom in a big bowl.
  2. 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.
  3. Whisk the eggs with oil and vanilla. Add it to the milk and buttermilk.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into the dry flour mix. Use a whisk to mix everything until you don’t see any dry lumps.
  5. 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.
