This is my go-to pancake recipe. The recipe itself isn’t anything fancy,  but the texture of these babies can’t be beat. I use this as a base recipe and spice things up with different flours,  frozen fruit, nuts, chocolate chunks, spices…whatever the heart desires!

I found this recipe (here) on a cold Edmonton morning a few years ago and it quickly became a Sunday morning ritual to get us through the Edmonton winters. My favourite way to eat these is with a dollop of plain yogurt, a spoonful of saskatoon sauce (frozen berries, water, sugar, corn starch – boil) and a drizzle of honey. Or just spread ’em with Nutella. No one’s judging.

3 eggs, separated
115 grams flour (about 3/4 cup of all purpose or spelt)
1 heaped t baking powder
140 ml milk
pinch salt
optional: cinnamon, nuts, frozen berries, chocolate chunks, sliced banana

1. Whisk egg yolks with flour, baking powder and milk.

2. Whisk/beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form, then fold into egg yolk mixture.

3. Stir in optional ingredients.

4. Plop into a hot greased pan and flip when they start to bubble!

Hope you like them!
