I got some whole wheat pastry flour from Fresh Market yesterday and thought I would try out pancakes. The couple ofrecipes I checked made it out to be very simple and indeed it is, and turned out not bad for a first try..
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 1 tsp baking powder 2 pinches baking soda 2 tbsp sugar a pinch of salt 2 tsp custard powder 1 cup milk or till batter consistency (substitute with soy milk for vegan) 2 tbsp butter
Makes about 6 medium sized pancakes.
Mix all the dry ingredients thouroughly and add butter pieces and mix . Add milk and mix till a batter consistency. Heat a griddle and drop a spoonful of batter and spread . Some bubbles should appear. Flip when browned. Heat for another minute and serve with some maple syrup or fruit syrup, I had blueberry syrup on hand . The pancake was nicely fluffy and some cake-y taste I think from the custard powder (which I got from an allrecipes tip). I think there was a bit of after-taste from soda so Im going to be careful with that next time.
All in all , a delicious breakfast with nice fresh strawberry milk shake on the side !
