Pancakes and Waffles

"Pancakes and waffles why choose have both. I found this recipe from Dr. Weil's recipe of the day. When I made this recipe I made both waffles and pancakes. I got 6 square waffles and 8 small pancakes. I made the pancakes plain and some with blueberries. I topped my plain waffles with bananas, walnuts and sugar free syrup."

Ready In:
30 pancakes




  • Crack the eggs, letting the whites fall into a clean, dry, mixing bowl and dropping the yolks into a separate bowl. Beat the whites with a mixer, on high speed, or whip with a balloon whisk for about 2 minutes until the egg whites become fluffy and then firm. Be careful not to overmix, or they will flatten out. Mix the egg yolks with a fork.
  • Add the orange juice and vanilla and whisk everything together until it becomes foamy. Add the milk, barely stirring.
  • Place the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until everything is thoroughly blended. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the egg-yolk mixture and continue to mix until all the dry ingredients are wet and there are no clumps of flour. Slowly fold in the egg whites and stir only once or twice.
  • To make regular sized plain pancakes: Coat the bottom of a flat griddle with 1/4 teaspoon butter and set it over medium heat for about 1 minute. Pour 3 tablespoons of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles start to form on top of each pancake. Turn them over and cook for about 2 minutes more. Transfer the pancakes to a hot platter and stack them to keep them warm. (No butter is needed after the first set of pancakes.).
  • To make waffles: Preheat the waffle iron until the signal comes on indicating it is ready. Pour enough of the batter evenly over the iron to fill it )usually about 1/2 cup) and let the batter cook until the edges are golden brown. Turn out onto a warm palte and top with the banana, chopped walnuts, and maple syrup.

  • 1 pint blueberries, washed.
  • To make medallion-sized blueberry pancakes: Coat the bottom of a flat griddle or large frying pan with 1/4 teaspoon butter or grapeseed oil and set it over medium heat for about 1 minute. Drop 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot grill, placing them far enough apart so the pancakes don't touch. Distribute 1 tablespoon (about 5) of blueberries on top of each pancake, letting the berries sink into the batter. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, in about 2 minutes, flip the pancakes over. Cook the side for 3 minutes. Transfer pancakes to a hot platter and stack them to keep them warm. Continue cooking the pancakes until all the batter is used up. (You do not need to add more butter to the pan.) Serve immediately. Makes 30 medallion-sized pancakes.

  • 1 pint strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced in half.
  • 1 pint blueberries, washed.
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup.
  • Prepare the fruit compote by mixing all the ingredients together until all the fruit is completely coated with syrup.
  • When all the batter is used up, top each 3 pancakes with 3 tablespoons of the fruit compote. Makes 12 regular sized pancakes.).

  • (Per Serving).
  • 1/2 banana, sliced.
  • 1/4 cup walnuts.
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup.

  1. Wow, I think this may become my go-to waffle recipe. I used all white flour as it was all I had. I used up some fat free half & half (about 1/4 cup worth) and the rest was skim milk. While there was no orange flavor, the fresh squeezed juice did give it a fresh flavor. These were crisp and mild, not sweet but perfect for whatever you wanted to put on them. Some of us had syrup, some jelly, and I put peanut butter on one. Easy to make as well. Thanks for posting.
