My morning pancake is, as often as not, dinner! I just love breakfast food for dinner. I think that's because typical American breakfast food is heavy and sweet and almost custom-designed to slow me down and make me sleepy.
This recipe makes a filling meal that is pretty wholesome, so I do like it for breakfast if I have the time.
This pancake recipe is infinitely modifiable. Here's the basic recipe:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flax meal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
To this, I add! Add what? Whatever you can dream up.
So, to 1/2 cup of mix I'll add an egg, and liquid (milk? whey? water? sure!) to make it batter-consistency.
Out of eggs? Add another tablespoon or 2 of flax meal and let the wet batter sit for a few minutes. The flax will act like an egg substitute.
I like to make 1 big cake in my cast iron skillet. Sometimes I'll cut up a banana on it, or sprinkle some chopped nuts, or chocolate chips and some pink Himalayan salt. If possible, I'll do all 3!
Want it savory? Add diced veg- corn, peppers, onion, tomato, chives, whatever. How about diced ham, or smoked salmon? YUM! You could wet it with a broth, or even beer, and make it a proper dinner.
Try it! Let me know how you like it.
