I have already shared with you my love for waffles, my favorite breakfast item. However, my husband prefers pancakes. Pancakes are just okay, I like them enough, but I have never loved them, that is until now. These pancakes are the best I have ever had by far. You have to try these delicious babies!
From: Smitten Kitchen
Yields: About 18 pancakes
3/4 cup oat flour (you can make this by pulsing oats in a food processor until finely ground; I cup of oats yields 3/4 cup flour)
1 cup flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly (plus extra for the pan)
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 cup cooked oatmeal *
1 Tablespoon honey
2 large eggs
Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the butter, milk, cooked oatmeal, honey and eggs together until throughly combined. Gently fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Using a light hand is important for tender pancakes, the batter should be slightly thick with a holey surface.
Heat a 10 inch skillet or griddle over medium heat until water sizzles when splashed onto the pan. Lower to medium-low. Rub the pan generously with butter, this is the key to crisp buttery edges. Pour about a 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan, once bubbles have begun to form on the top side, flip the pancake and cook until the bottom is a golden brown.
Serve the pancakes hot straight from the skillet or keep warm in a low oven. These are great as leftovers too, heat in a low oven or even in the microwave.
*Cook Oatmeal; mix 1 cup water, 1 cup rolled oats, and a pinch of salt in a small microwave safe bowl. Cook in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes.
