Whole wheat pancakes

My previous pancakes were a hit (at least with Nandini). Well, I can't take any credit for it because, it's my guruji Alton Brown's recipe. If you liked that one you will love this one. I usually don't use whole wheat for baking- if you are using 3 eggs, 2 sticks of butter, butter to grease the pan, might as well use APF :P

This was my first time trying pancakes with whole wheat (only because guruji used it). It was better than the APF pancakes.


Whole wheat pancakes: From Alton Brown's, I am just here for more food.
Dry ingredients-
1C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
Wet ingredients-
1 egg
1 cup milk (or buttermilk at room temperature)
2 Tbsp melted butter

1) Mix the dry ingredients.
2) Whisk the wet ingredients.
3) Add the wet ingredients to the dry one. Do not over mix.
4) Set aside for 10 mins.
5) Smear butter on a hot girdle and pour a ladle of a batter. Flip once you see bubbles and the bottom is golden.
6) Cook till second side is golden.


No people, those are not bullet wounds.
And since many of said you like the pictures, one more:


Nandu, I hope this is your breakfast/lunch/dinner today ;)

UPDATE: For all those people who asked me if egg can be omitted, I honestly don't know! But my favoritest vegan blog has an eggless recipe for pancakes (she in fact has 2) Vegan Yum Yum.

  12. You are the most bestest blogger I have seen. You gave due credit to Alton ji even after you tweaked the shape. I must say Alton would be one grateful guruji when he sees his creation bleeding on ur blog...oops i really thought it was bullet wounds.

    You think it is safe for me to try this recipe at home without you and Alton suing me together??

  30. Bergamot,

    sigh. I don't know what to reply!
    Vegan Yum Yum
    When are u coming just let me know I will be ready!

    Bananas work perfect. After u pour the batter just sprinkle the finely chopped bananas then turn over.
    Ishita should give this or the other one made with APF a try!

  31. SJ, I made this one for breakfast today, turned out real nice...Add raisins and drizzled with honey..super yum !

  32. for anyone who hasnt yet tried Sj's pancakes...these are the best ive evar tasted..better than any pancakehouse ones u have had.

    Totally vouch for it, and it will be a regular recipe..goes on my fridge recipe magnet.

    Just one thing i messed up doing - the milk was cold from the fridge and as i mixed the butter in hardened nextime will try mixing the butter alongwith the dry ingredients if the milk is cold.

  33. I am sorry dear, I missed ur name in the Kreative blogger link. I have corrected it now and pls do accept the award.

  34. I've just had my dinner; and I could eat a couple of those.

  35. Rush,
    melt the butter allow it to cool then add the milk, that way it won't harden. Been there done it :P
