Down Home Pancakes

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

This recipe was found in the As You Like It Cookbook, 2001 along with its vegan counterpart! We find them very satisfying when topped with a simple, not too sweet, homemade fruit sauce like blueberries!

These are terrific pancakes! Very light and fluffy, which is surprising with the wheat and oat flour. The cinnamon was a great addition, giving these that little extra something without tasting strongly of cinnamon. Loved these - thanks for sharing the recipe!
