whole wheat banana pancakes
tall stack, anyone? made a batch of these pancakes today. the recipe is adapted from this excellent basic pancake recipe, which makes nice fluffy pancakes. i just added some whole-wheat flour and made the suggested banana variation. didn't use cinnamon this time, but have used it before and it tastes wonderful.
Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1 cup soy milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 stick butter to grease skillet (optional)
1 In a medium bowl, mix together with a wire whisk flours, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon (if using).
2 In a 1-cup glass mixing cup, beat egg. Add milk and vegetable oil; mix well.
3 Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring until just moist. Gently mix in mashed bananas. Let mixture rest 30 seconds. Pancake batter will rise and bubble.
4 Heat nonstick skillet on medium heat. (Rub butter stick lightly on skillet to grease, if you like.) Spoon 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto skillet, spreading batter to form four-inch pancakes.
5 When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, flip over and cook for 1-2 minutes until bottom is golden.
Makes about 8 four-inch pancakes.
