Today is my birthday (zomg 37! where does the time go?), so we celebrated Shrove Tuesday a day early, feasting on pancakes for supper last night.
These are Boy#2’s favorite pancakes — so much so that he named them after himself when he was 4, leading to strange breakfast requests that sounded as though he was speaking of himself in the third person. They are tall, not overly sweet, and have a nice nuttiness to the flavour.
Combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl.
Mix together beaten egg, oil, and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
Heat pan to 190C / 380F — pan is hot when drops of water will bounce on the surface. Grease lightly and drop batter into pan by spoonful. When bubbles appear on the surface and the edges of the pancake appear to dry, turn cake and brown the other side.
This is a great livened up with the addition of a cup of blueberries or some mashed banana and chocolate chips when mixing the batter. Recipes doubles easily.
