Default Pancakes...

OK

With all the different threads hitting the pancakes to make them lighten up I needed to start a Pancake Thread.

Each week I make the pancakes the boys like and FREEZE a whole bunch. These are the Krusteaz brand mix I get from Costco with Chocolate Chips.




I just did a batch with a few cups of Apple Sauce and those turned out AWESOME! They are a little heartier as well as really moist.

This weekend I am going to make "Super Fuel" pancakes. What are they you ask? Well my little guy has been avoiding protein, so I am adding Apple Sauce, Whey Protein, Bran and Milk to Mix. Each Pancake will be a MEAL! Have not tried this so it my take a little trial and error, but should be no big deal...

Anyone make homemade batter? If so drop a recipe...

Over the Moon Chocolate milk.......added protein.....short on bad stuff....I'd suggest it to add a few grams of protein, and put some offsetting non-carbs alongside.

In your pancake mix that is.


Applesauce is a great moistener to baked goods.

You know what they say about pancakes...

Default scratch recipe

Here is my scratch recipe it was my grandpas...

1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 T sugar
1 egg
2 T oil

I usually mix the drys first and beat the egg in with the buttermilk to get it a head start. You dont want to over mix and this will a thick batter. When I make them with add ons like blueberries and such, I always add them after I put it on the skillet. So I ladle it on and before flipping I lay on some blueberries or chocolate chips or whatever.

I love adding blueberries to mine while they're cooking. in fact, i bagged up a whole bunch we picked just for that purpose. I'll hav eto try the apple sauce in the Krusteaz mix since I'm making a batch of apple sauce tomorrow.

I tend to waffle a lot more since I bought a restaurant style waffle maker; pancakes have taken a backseat lately. Maybe I'll make some this week.

+1. Got an awesome waffle maker at my wedding, and I use the bejesus out of it. But I like pancakes too! I use the recipe out of the Mark Bittman "How to Cook Everything" book... really simple, and my daughter loves to help stir.

I just picked up The Food Matters Cookbook by him. Interesting, and I like the idea behind it -- mostly healthy, few ingredients, fairly quick and simple fare.
