Light As A Feather Pancakes


Step-by-Step Instructions

Preheat griddle or sauté pan.

In medium bowl, stir or sift dry ingredients together.

In a separate bowl, beat egg, buttermilk, brown sugar and oil together. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened; batter should be slightly lumpy.

Pour ¼ cup batter for each cake onto a well-seasoned hot griddle or sauté pan. Flip the pancake when bubbles appear on surface; turn only once.


1. Delete baking soda and salt; increase baking powder to 2 teaspoons

2. Substitute 1 1 3 cup 1% milk with 1Tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar for buttermilk.

3. Add ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries.

4. Serve hot, chunky, spiced applesauce or thick fruit sauce over pancakes instead of syrup for extra nutrition and fiber.
