(Slightly) Wheat Pancakes

Jacob tried very hard to surprise me on Valentine’s day morning with hash browns in bed.  He failed miserably and I ended up with cereal, but I gave credit for the effort!  That afternoon, he actually searched for a recipe and we had hash browns with cheese and ham for our dinner.  They were amazing, but we were still hungry.  So I made us some pancake batter; I altered it by adding a bit of wheat flour.  They turned out really good.  Jacob is a very good flipper, he even made pancakes in the shape of our initials, he is such a pro!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs, separated (whites whipped)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

We used a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.  We used a large pan so we could fit 2 at a time, obviously a griddle would work well also, but we aren’t so lucky to have one.  We waited for bubbles to flip (sometimes I need to peak to check if it is brown), then it won’t even take half that time for the other side.

I love eating breakfast foods, all the time.  And hash browns and pancakes are my favorite!  I would like to add sausages or bacon to our normal repertoire of meat.  And bacon is such a good flavoring for so many dishes!
