This recipe is for you home chefs out there that have invested in a grain mill. Freshly ground wheat is fluffy and warm. If you use regular flour, the consistency of this recipe will not be accurate. Also the use of soaking the flour would not be as helpful. Caution: These pancakes are very filling. In other words, “Don’t eat until you pop. You might feel sick.” Ha Ha! 🙂
ATTENTION! PLAN YOUR PANCAKE BREAKFAST EATING FRENZY THE NIGHT BEFORE. THIS RECIPE HAS TO SOAK ALL NIGHT.
I have noticed that other recipe bloggers put the ingredients at the end of the blog. I however like to check right away if I have all the ingredients or not. It’s just my quirky way. So you get to have a bite of some of that quirkiness in this blog.
2 and 2/3 cups freshly ground kamut flour (if you don’t have kamut, splet will work too. Spelt just has a stronger flavor)
* If you like your pancakes thick or thin, just add or take way some flour.
2 cups sour milk (if you don’t have sour milk then just add 3 tsp. of lemon juice to the milk. Or you can use 3 Tbl. plain yogurt, or kefer)
1/3 cup olive oil (if you don’t have olive oil you can use coconut oil, or butter)
1/4 cup honey (if you don’t have honey you can use maple syrup or coconut sugar)
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbl. pure vanilla extract
*If you live at sea level, you might need to add more raising power. This recipe was concocted at 8,000 ft. so…….. ya.
I am in love with my kitchen aid mixer. So don’t mind me when I constantly refer to it. I should give it a name. How about Tina? Just do whatever it is you usually do. So lets start.
1. Add flour and sour milk to Tina’s mixing bowl. 🙂
2. Cover the bowl with saran wrap and let set overnight.
3. The next morning, add the rest of the ingredients to Tina’s mixing bowl and turn Tina on. She’ll do the work.
4. Heat up your skillet. I like to use a cast iron, but that’s just crazy me.
5. Just like any other pancake making, the first pancake is not the one to serve to the king.
6. When it gets nice and bubbled, flip it over.
Now make sure the kids and hubby get some too. Enjoy! Easily serves a family of four.
* Save any left over batter. Store in your frig. The longer this pancake batter sits, the better the pancakes get.
* I like to save my old plastic ketchup bottles, etc. and pour the batter in them. This makes for a less mess breakfast the next day.
