Ria's Collection: THE BEST WHOLEWHEAT PANCAKES with video!

pancake 2
Iam not a person who can make the exact same thing over and over and over again in one week's time. But these pancakes...they were really so good that we had so many repeats in one week. We even had them for breakfast today! We love pancakes as a family,with or without syrup. But I used to restrict myself from making it often because the recipe I've used earlier was made with all purpose flour. I didn't want to start our day eating a whole bunch of refined flour along with syrup.

So when I came across Lindsay's recipe, I was excited to try. Like I said before, there has been no looking back since. Last night as Jobin was editing the video, Ian overheard it and quickly asked me with shining eyes what I was planning for breakfast tomorrow. I knew what he wanted by just looking into those eyes! So I told him I will let him make it and he did. He loves to help me in the kitchen and as he was mixing up the batter, he told me that he is learning all this so that he can make his own pancakes when he grows up!

I mean, that has been my secret motive in involving the kids with kitchen activities and it looks like it has been going in the right direction! Anyway, these pancakes were gobbled up in no time, as always. Like I have mentioned in the video, you can serve it with maple syrup & butter, honey, any fruit compotes or even our good old nadan 'paani'.

pancake 3Makes 6-8

1 egg
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons oil
3/4 cup buttermilk *
1 teaspoon vanilla
Scant 1 cup whole wheat flour /atta
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon water

Method: In a bowl, whisk together the egg and brown sugar till combines, about 10-15 seconds. Add the oil and whisk to combine. Add the buttermilk & vanilla and whisk. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and mix until it's combined. Few lumps are okay. Add the water and whisk gently to combine.
Heat a nonstick pan on medium heat and pour 1/3 cup worth of batter. Flip the pancakes when the edges are opaque and bubbles appear on the surface. Cook the other side for 30 second. Transfer them to a plate and serve with syrup and fruits!

* To make buttermilk at home, take 3/4 cup of milk in a cup and add 2 teaspoon of white vinegar to it. Stir it and let it sit for 5 minutes. Use as needed.
Yesterday while I was watching Food Network Ian came up to me asked me when will I come on 'real' TV. He really enjoys watching my videos on YouTube and gives me subtle hints once in a while when he feels like eating those things. We film it after the kids go to bed. So Ian is very excited to taste the food in the morning and see the video after it's edited. Zara came running to me last evening saying that she heard me in Appa's computer! The way she put it across was very funny! My video editing time is quite entertaining for us!
So if you were looking for a Wholewheat Pancake recipe that uses 100% Wholewheat flour, this one is for you. It is an excellent recipe and makes super light fluffy pancakes that tastes equally good.I hope you enjoy making these pancakes as much as we do!

Absolutely worth trying because eating healthy is also eating yummy in this case. I and my daughter could not stop with just one or two to be honest. I am a fan of your recipes as you are always bang on when it comes to the taste of the final product. We love you and your cooking :)

Hello Ria,

First of all, Kudos to you on sharing such amazing recipes with two little kids to take care of! :)
Wanted to ask, do you grease the pan with butter/oil before you make the pancakes? Or it's not necessary since oil is already included in the mixture?

Hi Ria, Kudos to you for such amazing recipes :)
Wanted to know if you grease the pan with butter/oil before pouring the batter. Or is it not necessary since oil is already part of the mixture?

Hi Ria! I would love to make these pancakes tomorrow morning, but I only have regular sugar. Will this recipe still work if I substitute brown for white sugar?

nasi said...

Is it 1tbsp of baking powder????

Ria Mathew said...

Yes, it is!

Ria Mathew said...

Diya said...

Seena said...

Hi Ria

Thank you so much for the recipe! Is there a substitute I can use instead of the egg?

Ria Mathew said...

Thanks Diya!
Seena, a flax egg maybe? I've never done a substitution.

Ria Mathew said...

Jerlin, if it's a nonstick pan, you don't have to.
Aleesha, I think it would be just fine. A lot of my readers have been doing that. :)
