This week's CEiMB, Whole Wheat Pancakes, was chosen by dishin'.
I very rarely make a big breakfast unless we have guests that I know will appreciate it. Therefore, I knew this recipe would be a treat one night this week. Our typical routine is to enjoy our simple carbs during the day and have dinner be low on the glycemic index scale. We by no means are "low-carb" people but we try to focus dinner on lean meats and veggies. So, my husband was warned that one night we were going to have breakfast for dinner and that we would both need to get a good bike ride beforehand.
This dish was a treat indeed! I was also pleasantly surprised that the apples and honey provided the only added sugar. I think by not using cane sugar you were able to better taste the buttermilk and apples. The pancakes were light. I also thought the nut topping was great. It added some texture and helped the meal to feel a bit more filling. We both enjoyed the meal very much!
