Author Notes: This pancake base has been a family favorite for years. We typically dress them with banana slices or blueberries grown on our farm, but they would be delicious topped with your favorite pancake companion.1840 Farm

Should these be made with white whole wheat? Or all-purpose?


about 1 month ago 1840 Farm

I usually make them with King Arthur White Wheat flour. I have also made them with whole wheat and All-purpose flour with good results. I know that several people have made them with gluten free flour and enjoyed them.

Wonderful! I was short on ingredients so I subbed sour cream for yogurt and unsweetened vanilla almond milk for dairy milk. Whipped up a mixed berry and lavender syrup to top them with. A fantastic breakfast.

These are the best pancakes ever!!!! I used Danon Oikos Greek yogurt and a coconut milk/almond-milk blend instead of regular yogurt and milk! They are light and fluffy, like I am eating a cloud, yet they still have sweetness and flavor.

We have gluten-free and (cow) dairy-free in our family so made these with a GF flour blend and used almond-coconut milk for the skim milk and goat kefir in place of the yogurt. They were wonderful. Thanks.

You have broken your format somehow. when I copy-paste the recipe, it looks like this:

cups white wheat flour
tablespoons brown sugar
Which is pretty useless.

Used to work OK …

I'm sorry that you had trouble pasting the recipe. I haven't made any changes and don't control the formatting of the page, so the best advice I can offer is to use the print and/or email buttons at the top of the page. I hope that helps and that you enjoy the pancakes!

Run! Don't walk from bed to the kitchen, and make these wonderful pancakes for your breakfast. I've never been a fan of flap jacks, but these hot cakes have changed my mind. Light and fluffy with a great flavor profile. Your family will thank you over and over again!

Thanks for the great compliment! These pancakes are a family favorite here and I'm always happy to hear that another family has added them to their breakfast table.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the pancakes!

I made these today and they were delicious. I'm a pancake novice and they turned out great. I halved the recipe, used wholewheat flour, and didn't change any of the proportions and they were fabulous. Thanks for the recipe!

This is great. I'm always open to new pancake recipes. An even quicker way to have pancakes in the morning is to cook the whole batch and then freeze them. In the morning just pop one in the toaster!

these look fantastic, thanks! btw, your gluten free cookies were to die for.
