Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Ah yes. Back from camping. I had an AWESOME time. And an awesome tan to boot.

You know what the best part of camping is? Swimming. A hot day and a cold lake is the best combination. Also hammocks. Oh how I love hammocks. I think I spent half my time just laying in a hammock. I even fell asleep in one. I would gladly trade my current bed for a hammock. It's like I'm being rocked to sleep.

This much relaxing has brought out my creative side, and I have drawn a cute picture of a Lego couple:

Yeah, I'm not much of an artist, but now..it's back to reality.

And back to the fridge with this carton of buttermilk staring right back at me. Barely used. You'd think that I would get sick of pancakes while camping. Think again.

(Actually, maybe it's because I have only had pancakes once while camping..)

I would like to give a warning about this recipe. It makes a LOT. Hope you're hungry. Or freeze the extras and toast it, which has actually become one of my favorite ways to eat pancakes..

What you'll need:

-1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
-3 tablespoons white sugar
-3 teaspoons baking powder
-1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 cups buttermilk
-1 cup milk
-3 eggs
-1/3 cup butter, melted


    1.   In a large bowl, combine the flours,sugar , baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
    2.   In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Mix in the buttermilk and milk. Pour into the flour mixture and mix until fully incorporated.
    3.   Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, and flip when bubbles are covering the surface of the pancake. Flip and cook the other side until it is golden.

  16. Sounds like you had a great time camping! I really want to go camping with my friends before the summer ends, but we'll see how that goes. And I feel the exact same way about hammocks. A good book, a nice balmy day, and a hammock = paradise.

    These buttermilk pancakes look so fluffy and light. I like that you use whole wheat flour to make them a little bit healthier.

  17. Looks like you had great time camping. Whole wheat buttermilk pancake looks delicious.

  19. I love pancakes! But I would have to make less as I am the only one eating them :)

  20. Having extra pancakes in the fridge is NEVER a bad thing! These look awesome.

  21. wow.. pancake looks really light and fluffy.

  22. What a cute Lego couple! Pancakes are a rarity in our house, but I really should make them more often. These pancakes look so perfect!

  23. I've never toasted pancakes - great idea. Sometimes leftover pancakes are good smeared with jam and then rolled into a wrap shape. Nice, quick snack. Anyway, I'll never turn down a pancake - and these look great! Thanks.
