This is my latest creation. I leave the batter a little thinner and make a extra large pancake and fill it with a couple of fried eggs, fried in coconut oil. It is an amazing way to eat pancakes. If I am filling daring I add a couple slices of bacon on the inside. That is a real treat that I don't do often.
I cook my pancakes of a cast iron griddle. This one that I love is a lodge pizza pan. Pure cast iron, made for baking pizza , it comes seasoned and ready to use. I have to confess I have never used it for pizza. I have used it for everything else from tortillas to pancakes, it is the perfect griddle. I love how round it is. Fits perfectly on my cook top. What's up with the long griddles, that never seem to heat up right. I love this one.
Different ingredients cause pancakes to cook differently. Same griddle, same heat, totally differently look. I change the grain and liquid often. From buttermilk to almond or rice milk. I add different flavorings also, from vanilla to orange. Depending on how I fill. We can eat pancakes everyday and never fill like we are eating the same thing. I have a covered pancake batter bowl that I use and just add to it each day. It has sourdough starter in it and I just keep adding more to it. Pancake batter keeps well in the frig. It does not look great, but just whisk it up and it looks great again.
|I love fried eggs on pancakes. It does not get any better.|
|I saw this on Pintress. I had to try it. Oh my. I did change the pancake recipe to whole grain.|

Buttermilk Whole Grain Pancakes/waffles
2 cups WonderFlour or any whole grain flour
2 tablespoons Oil
2.5 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoons Xagave
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 teaspoons Rumford’s Baking Powder
Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl except baking powder. Whisk well. Add baking powder and quickly whisk again. Do not mix again. Cook on hot griddle.
For a thinner pancake add more liquid, for a thicker pancake make the dough thicker by adding more flour. I have found that I like both kinds for different reasons.
Enjoy your pancake adventure. Pancakes are a great way to start the day and I have even ended the day with pancakes. Filled with nutrition and flavor pancakes are good any meal. Have a great day. Chef Brad~America's Grain Guy
