Gramma Momo's WW Pancakes

Recipe by  

"This is my version of a great recipe that I found in my Mom's recipe book. It actually came from my grandmother Momo around WW2. My only real change was substituting applesauce for the oil. Feel free to try either way."

Directions

  1. Whisk whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Mix in brown sugar, breaking it up into pea-sized pieces. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and stir milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract into eggs. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture; stir until just combined. If batter is too thick, add more milk.
  2. Grease a skillet or griddle with vegetable oil and place over medium-high heat. Scoop 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot skillet and cook pancake until browned on the bottom and bubbles appear in the top, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the pancake and cook until browned, 2 or 3 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

I followed the recipe exact, only cutting the brown sugar back by half. The pancakes turned out a little flat but they were delicious. I served them with homemade Maple-Vanilla Syrup on top. I will make these again but double the amount of baking powder. Then, I think that would make them perfect. NOTE: This made 12 pancakes, using a 1/3 cup dry measuring cup to ladle the batter onto my griddle.

The serving size must be a typo. It should probably say it serves between 2 and 4 people. I cut the recipe in half and it fed my son & I. It made 10 smallish pancakes. I cut the baking soda & powder by just a tad and my pancakes were very, very fluffy. I had to smoosh them down a bit. I did have to add a bit more milk, which I hate to do since it makes you mix them more. But, the flavor was very, very good! I used White Whole Wheat and less vanilla (personal preference, I'm not a huge fan of vanilla in pancakes). I used a bit less brown sugar. I just used Pam instead of oil in the pan. Thanks for sharing your family recipe, I'll make it again!

This was a great recipe. My dough ended up being a little thick so i had to add 1/4 cup more milk after which it was pourable. The pancakes themselves were pretty filling, we ate them for dinner and I could only have two pancakes using a 1/4 cup measuring scoop to pour and my husband had 5. I took Sarah Jo's suggestion of adding more baking powder, I added an additional 1/2 tsp of both baking powder and baking soda and they were super thick and fluffy. If you don't like thick I would advise against increasing the raising agents that much. It was a bit on the sweet side and I would probably reduce the sugar to 1/3 or 1/4 cup next time. I put in strawberries but it was too sweet with all the sugar to put in the chocolate chips I normally throw into pancakes or even to serve with syrup.

I was surprised at how good these tasted! The grainy texture might throw some people off who are used to white flour pancakes, but the taste is so yummy! My kids loved them and so did I! I decided to take some reviewers suggestions. I added an additional 1/2 tsp of baking powder and cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup. The pancakes rose well and had a wonderful sweetness to them. If I had had applesauce I would have used it as suggested, but I didn't so I added 3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil. I just couldn't stand the thought of pouring 1/2 cup of oil into my pancakes. They turned out wonderful. I think I'll add 2 tsp cinnamon next time when I make these again with the applesauce. Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe!

The best wheat pancakes we have found! I ended up adding 1/2 cup more milk, but kept everything else the same. These deliciously thick, slightly sweet pancakes will be made again and again in this house! I originally made the batter ahead of time, for a camping trip, but had to try them first! Thank you Gramma Momo!!

All I had on hand was regular self rising flour to use in this recipe. I cut back to 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 tsp of baking powder. They turned out great.
