Spelt Pancakes

by Matt on October 26, 2010

In this household, pancakes on a Sunday morning is a tradition.

Enter: Pancake Sunday.

Actually, it has always been sort of a tradition. While I was growing up, a standard weekend breakfast was the shake ‘n pour Bisquick with a side of bacon that you make in the microwavable pouch.

Disgusting?

I think so.

Although Pancake Sunday is a little different now, it is still full of delicious carbohydrates.

One of the problems with making pancakes is that most recipes make enough to feed a family and then some. While I typically eat more than most people, I try to make recipes that produce enough for just me. While I love leftovers and they save me all the time, I hate eating the same thing all week. It gets boring and I love to cook!

Believe it or not, this was actually my first time adding coconut to my pancakes. Actually, I think it was my first time adding coconut to anything since my bag was unopened. I have no idea when I bought that bag ;)

Perhaps I wanted to pretend I was going on a vacation to the Caribbean?

Well, it worked because my mouth felt like it was in paradise.

Hey Matt!
The best pancake mix I’ve ever tried is Kodiak Cakes. You can find it on Amazon. I learned about it on KERF and have been using it ever since! It’s whole wheat, you only add water, and it makes 7 small pancakes in one batch – so you don’t have a million left over! So easy and really good!! You might check it out.

I definitely agree with the above poster. Def try Kodiak cakes. so good and wholeseome. May I ask you what the difference is between spelt flour and other flours? Is it a good alternative to use in place of all purpose or whole wheat flour?

I’ve never tried coconut in my pancakes either! I think I’ll try that this week!

I bought a bag of coconut last Christmas for cookies and it still is unopened in the pantry!

Perfect! I JUST bought my first spelt flour this past weekend at Whole Foods, but I haven’t done anything with it. I love wheat pancakes, but I will def try the spelt version. (why does spell check not recognize “spelt”?? Grrr!!)

So I’ve noticed that you use a lot of spelt flour–why is that? I honestly don’t know much about spelt and was wondering if there is some advantage to it over regular wheat flour.

I made pancakes on Sunday, too! I tried making up a recipe from scratch and it was ok, but not great. Hoping to nail it some time soon. Yours look yummy! I love coconut on breakfast dishes! :)

These look fantastic! Is there a texture difference when using the spelt flour do you think?

I know this is practically a sin in the blog world but I am not a huge fan of pancakes. Yes, I go to ihop after every long bike ride. But as far as eating pancakes for a normal breakfast, they never fill me up. Not to mention that gluten and I are not friendly in the AM and gluten-free pancakes are cardboard.

We used to have bisquick pancakes every Sunday too — but my dad would make us real bacon :) But, we did use that corn syrup type maple syrup. Yuck. The real stuff is 100000% better!

i need to tell you that (a) i LOVED all your egg posts. every runny bite made me want another egg. (b) you are so right about comparing – we must only compare ourselves to ourselves! seriously – it’s about being better as a person, not compared with people we’ve never met (c) i made similar pancakes awhile ago and they rocked my world.

happy day!!!
