These are really hearty, satisfying pancakes when you wake up ravenous. They are especially good with pure maple syrup. This recipe is from the Millenium Cookbook.
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup cornflour
- 1⁄3 cup walnuts, toasted and crushed
- 1⁄4 cup rolled oats
- 2 teaspoons unrefined sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 cups soymilk
- 1 teaspoon champagne vinegar or 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
- In large bowl, mix the flours, walnuts, oats, sugar, allspice, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder together well.
- In a medium bowl, mix the soy milk and vinegar together.
- Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until well incorporated.
- The resulting batter should be a little thicker than heavy cream.
- Pour about 1/2 cup batter into a lightly oiled nonstick saute pan or skillet and cook until lightly browned on each side.
- Lightly spread with good vegetable margarine and drizzle with pure maple syrup.
I don't know... these turned out like little rubber disks for me. I think they do not have anywhere near enough leavening and I think the amount of acid (vinegar) that is added needs to be higher. I didn't really like the flavor either. I think they need some oil too- most pancakes I have made in the past that are fat free also use beaten egg whites, which these don't. I think they need a Tbs or two at least. I also found that i only could use 2 cups of milk and it was already too thin. I am wondering if there aren't some omissions in this recipe. I eventually ended up salvaging them, but had to add a lot of additional ingredients and they still weren't very good. The ones I made per the recipe hit the trash can. Sorry.
Carol, these thin, crisp pancakes were absolutely fantastic! I didn't have walnuts, so I used toasted chopped almonds, and I substituted soy milk with skim milk. I was rather generous with the cinnamon too; next time I think I'll also try some finely chopped apples or bananas in the batter, and perhaps a dash of vanilla. Who said pancakes hafta have eggs, eh? :)
