So I have been making my Spelt pancakes for a while, trying to perfect them. Trying this ratio, trying that ratio and I believe I have finally found that perfect recipe.
Now, I have my own grinder that is an attachment to my Kitchen-Aid Mixer and I cannot stress enough the benefit of having a Mixer and your own grinder attachment! It has changed my world! I buy organic grains in bulk and when I want Bread, pancakes, cookies, muffins, or pasta, I have the ability to make everything as fresh and as healthy as it can be.
Please get one today if you don’t already have one. I don’t know what my husband and I would do without it!
So here it goes, my Spelt Pancakes!
2tbsp honey or Succant
1 cup or whole organic milk or Almond milk (keep a little milk handy for later)
1tbs melted butter
salt – pinch
1tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cup of fresh ground spelt flour
In a mixing bowl with a spout for pouring, whisk eggs, honey, milk, and butter together until nicely combined.
Add your dry ingredient, salt, baking soda, and flour into your wet ingredient and stir.
It might be a little thick and will continue to get thick the longer it sits. So add a dash of milk until its a loose (not watery tho) batter.
Heat up your cast iron skillet and spray with coconut oil spray (if you don’t have one, get one, they are amazing) or whatever skillet you choose to about a 3 dial setting.
Pour batter onto skillet slowly, remember its a loose batter, it will keep expanding. When you see a good amount of bubbles formed, its ready to flip! The pancake will continue to rise, and once the bottom is a good golden brown, its done.
Repeat until batter is gone. For me, it makes about 8 good sized pancakes. Top with your choice of toppings or none at all!
I hope you enjoy them as much as my husband and I do!
