Pizza Tonight

We had a crazy day today, so we ordered pizza for dinner tonight. It was supposed to be half cheese and half red pepper, pineapple, and sausage. Unfortunately (though not terribly too unfortunately) it was half cheese and half red pepper, pineapple, and feta. I guess sausage sounds a lot like feta when you are answering the phone in a loud kitchen.

But, as an upshot, we made pancakes for breakfast this morning. These are fairly healthy pancakes which I appreciate because the kids don't spike and crash immediately after eating them. Here is that recipe:

Fancy Pancakes
makes about 28 pancakes ladled with a 1/3 cup measure

Dry Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup corn meal
1 cup nuts*, ground finely in food processor
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar

Wet Ingredients
4 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup milk

  • Combine dry ingredients in a very large bowl.
  • Thoroughly combine wet ingredients in another bowl.
  • Add wet to dry and mix until moistened.
  • Allow batter to rest while griddle heats.
  • Ladle batter on a lightly greased griddle over a medium-low flame and cook until edges lose their shine. Flip and cook about half as long as they cooked on the first side.
  • Serve with your favourite toppings. Ours are: real maple syrup, jam, high-fat plain yogurt, peanut butter, and fresh fruit.
*Hazelnuts (aka filberts) add a rich flavor to the pancakes. Almonds do not add much flavor, but work quite well, regardless.
