Directions

  1. Whisk whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl; pour buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients. Stir just until combined (batter may seem a bit thick).
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto hot skillet and use a spoon to spread the pancake a bit. Cook until browned and bubbles appear on top, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned and set in the middle, about 2 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Cups of flour just shy of full will yield a lighter pancake and more traditional batter.

I did not have buttermilk on hand, I soured whole milk with a couple tablespoons lemon juice. I made no other changes. I have made whole wheat pancakes before and know that it takes a bit for the whole wheat flour to suck up some of the additional liquid so I let it sit for five-ten minutes while the griddle preheated. VERY good pancake. Reminds me of the pancakes my dad made for me on Saturday mornings. Kids loved them.

My family didn't care for these at all. I think it was because of the texture. I didn't enjoy making them either, because they are so thick.

I made these at least twice weekly for the past 6 months. They melt in your mouth. The only changes I make, eliminate sugar & add a 2 tsp liquid stevia. I also add a tsp vanilla, & a extra 1/2 tsp baking powder. These are only personal preferences, its great without them also. 5 stars!!!!

Wow, these are great. Fluffy, thick, and with the subtle nutty taste of whole wheat. I also subbed in soured milk (with vinegar) instead of buttermilk. Other than that, followed the recipe. Kids love them without syrup, my husband loves them, and so do I! This is the third time I've made them and they came out great each time. Perfect whole wheat pancakes"

Loved this recipe! I did substitute coconut oil for the vegetable oil, though.

I have made this many times. I dropped the sugar, since my daughter tends to drown her pancakes in syrup. They were still very delicious. I also like to drop in sliced bananas or fresh blueberries while the first side is cooking.

Great recipe! The first time I made it as is, now I add a splash of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon and add over-ripe sliced bananas to the batter. A great whole wheat recipe that is easy and tasty. I also like that it made plenty of pancakes for my whole family so there was enough for everyone without having to fight over them. Thanks!
