Whole Grain One Cup Pancakes

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Pancakes are fun food. Plus they are good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is funny but all you have to do is add an egg and a couple pieces of crisp bacon to a plate of pancakes, and that meal is just as delicious for breakfast as it is for lunch or dinner......

One day while looking for a different recipe, I stumbled upon Jamie Oliver and his One Cup Pancakes. Right away I knew I wanted to try them because I make my own self-rising flour using whole grains. While you can find the recipe here (try those biscuits while you're on that page, they are great!), but I decided to list the ingredients and method again, for your convenience......

Easy homemade whole wheat pancakes.

But before we get to the flour recipe, let's take a look at those pancakes. They are great, simple, wholesome and perfect to accept a pat of butter and some real maple syrup. Perfect for a Sunday breakfast, or any time you want pancakes. Plus the recipe could not be any simpler. Jamie made his with blueberries, we did not (this time) but feel free to add them.

Small batch pancake recipe, using your own homemade self rising flour!

Whole Grain One Cup Pancakes
adapted from One Cup Pancakes
makes 6 pancakes

1 c Whole Grain Self-Rising flour, You may find our tale and recipe for whole-grain self-rising flour here!
1 c whole milk
1 large egg
bacon fat, butter or coconut oil for frying

Combine in a large bowl, using a wooden spoon mix until almost smooth. You actually want a few lumps in your batter.

"One Cup" Pancake Batter.

Heat a large skillet or griddle, add fat of choice, drop batter and cook over medium heat until golden. Turn pancake over and cook the other side until golden.

Pancakes should spring back in the center when properly cooked. Place on an ovenproof platter and keep warm in a low oven (200 degrees) until ready to serve.

You do not need a separate pancake mix, use you own homemade self rising flour for great whole grain pancakes.

Serve with butter and real maple syrup.


Homemade Self-rising Flour

Note:  Feel free to increase the whole wheat flour while decreasing the all-purpose flour, with each batch made. We now make this with 100% whole grains.

2 c whole wheat flour
6 c flour - divided
4 T baking powder
2 t salt

Place the whole wheat flour and 5 cups of regular flour in a large bowl. Place the baking powder and salt into the bottom of the one cup measuring cup and add enough flour to make the final cup of flour for a total of 6 cups. Ad the final cup of flour to the bowl and whisk thoroughly.

Store in a cool dry place, you can refrigerate due to the whole wheat flour, if you prefer. This can be used in any recipe calling for self-rising flour, like these pancakes....

  1. I've never made homemade pancakes and that looks so easy!!

  2. What I like best about this recipe is that I've already memorized it. :)

    Those pancakes look awesome. Between the waffles someone else shared and these I want breakfast all day long.

  3. You have been reading my mind. I have been thinking about pancakes all day. This sounds like a great recipe. Thanks, Rocquie

  4. Melynda, thanks for the recipe! It sure won't be hard to remember and sounds much better that the boxed stuff. Have a good week!

  5. Very similar to what I do, except I just add the baking powder when I do the mixing. I add a touch of vanilla and sugar to sweeten things up. - Margy

  6. The pancake I always use is very fiddly--I like that this one is easy to remember without having to get out a recipe. We eat pancakes often since they are one of my son's favorite foods. Usually for dinner!
    Thank you for sharing.

  7. Your pancakes look fantastic, Melynda and I love the whole grain self rising flour too! Thank you for sharing with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party. Pinning!
