Hey there :)
Pancakes are always a good choice for breakfast, don’t you think? They make you feel like it’s holiday. It’s the perfect way to pamper oneself. And it’s really cool how many different versions there are possible. You could basically have 3 different pancakes for each meal of the day and it won’t feel like the same thing. Because it isn’t. Whoever invented pancakes, hooray for this genius! I feel lke baking him/ her a pancake-cake. A big one.
So the weird thing is, I haven’t made some pancakes in a while and now that I had them again I regret this. I should have pancakes more often. Everyone should have pancakes more often. In whatever version.
The version I went for were carrot pancakes. So I can pretend I had some veggies for breakfast. Hah! Must be healthy then, right? Also went for whole wheat flour. Woohoo. Not gonna mention the sugar here, that’s not so important. You can of course have them with some cream cheese frosting, but for me just some walnuts and maple syrup was good enough :)
prep time: about 20 mintues +++ yields: about 10-15 pancakes
- 2 eggs
- ½ Cup / 125ml buttermilk
- 1/3 Cup / 75g brown sugar
- 1 Cup / 135g whole wheat flour
- 1 Cup / 100g carrots
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla paste
- ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
- pinch of salt
If not done yet grate the carrots and set aside.
Mix together the eggs, buttermilk, brown sugar and vanilla paste in a big bowl.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Stir the flour-mixture into the egg and buttermilk-mixture until everything is well combined.
Then stir in the carrots.
Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches place a knob of butter/ ghee/ coconut oil and about 2-3 Tsp. of batter per pancake into the heated pan and bake until bubbles are visible (about 2-4 minutes) then flip and bake on the other side until brown (another 2-3 minutes).
Serve with whatever you like them with :)
