Happy Weekend! We are crazy about homemade pancakes and have all kinds of recipes. Here is one of our current favorites. A little healthy, a little nutty, and a lot of DELICIOUSNESS.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup ground up shelled pistachios (salted or unsalted)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
pinch of salt
1/4 cup raw or brown sugar
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup milk or almond milk
4 tablespoons melted, slightly cooled butter, plus more butter to fry the pancakes
Whisk together dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk wet ingredients. Combine and whisk only until incorporated, but do not over-work the batter, it’s ok to have some lumps. Heat one or two cast iron (or other heavy skillet) over medium heat. Add a small pat of butter to the heated pan, let it melt and then pour as much batter (I usually do around 1/4 cup or slightly more) as you’d like–depending on how large you want your pancakes. Make sure you smooth out the batter so you have a nice, round pancake. Heat until the ends are easy to loosen and bubbles appear on the surface (around a minute), then flip with a spatula and warm the other side.
Top pancakes with anything you’d like. We painted them with dulce de leche, but they are just as delicious with jam, honey, maple or even something savory like carved turkey breast and swiss cheese. Enjoy! -Carolina
