brunch at home

5.14.2009

New York City has a huge brunch culture. With our busy working lives, it allows us get together with friends, relax, and have some good eats. This past weekend, I decided to make a pretty standard brunch fare at home-- pancakes with bacon. I used a buttermilk pancake recipe from bills food with a few substitutions.

whole wheat pancakes
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour 
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour 
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder 
  • a pinch of salt 
  • 2 tablespoon of sugar 
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 3 cups milk with 1 tablespoon of vinegar (the original recipe calls for buttermilk) 
  • 2 1/2 oz unsalted butter, melted unsalted butter, for greasing the pan  
directions
  1. Stir the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a bowl. Add the eggs, milk and melted butter and whisk to combine.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat and brush a little butter over the base. For each pancake, ladle about 1/3 cup of batter into the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn the pancakes over and cook for another minute. Transfer to a plate and keep warm in a 200 degree oven while cooking the rest of the pancakes.
  3. Serve with maple syrup and bacon.
