Who does not love to wake up on a Saturday morning to be greeted by a plate of steaming fresh pancakes, complete with a topping of your choice? Every family seems to have their own favorite version of this traditional breakfast food, anything from pancakes and peanut butter to pancakes with a heaping mound of strawberries and whipped cream on top! If you are interested in healthy living, you may want to try a more nutritious version of this recipe. This whole wheat pancake recipe is definitely more healthy and yet delicious as other varieties.
The first step to creating these delicious pancakes is to combine the dry ingredients. Mix two cups whole wheat flour, one teaspoon baking soda, and one teaspoon salt together in a large bowl. Stir until combined and then add: one and a half cups chunky applesauce, one and three quarter cups milk, a teaspoon of vanilla, and two large eggs. Careful not to mix too much!
It should be noted here that one of the top secrets to producing light and fluffy pancakes is to avoid over mixing the batter. Just stir until combined and do not stress about a few little lumps. If you mix until every little lump is gone, you will end up with heavy pancakes that are gooey and flat.
Begin heating your pan and grease it using a small amount of butter or oil. This will help your pancakes not to stick to the pan. If you are planning on cooking other foods in addition to pancakes, a griddle is a nice option. Griddles always cook food through evenly and also allow you to flip pancakes easier and provide a good surface that will help with any sticking issues you may have.
Pour your batter onto the skillet using in increments of one quarter cup. Let each pancake cook until bubbles begin to appear in the center. Flip them and allow to cook for about one more minute or until lightly browned.
If you are trying to think of a new and fun idea for a party, pancakes are an option that is both new and fun. You could have all your friends over for a Saturday brunch and serve up mounds of streaming pancakes complete with a topping bar featuring a lot of options. This will be fun for all as you experiment with different toppings and discover your new favorites.
