The Food Groupie Club

Hi my name is Sarah and I'm addicted to food. I have been a chef professionally for about 12 years now and am currently teaching cooking classes at a culinary school. I seriously love to cook and eat good food. The problem with cooking and eating like the professionals though is that it can be kind of intimidating for a home food enthusiast. My goal is to bring good food into every-day homes. Anyone can make healthy, good quality, good tasting, and good looking food with the right know-how. So here you made easy by a professional!

I will be featuring some of my favorite chef's recipes in my posts and will note in the post what book was used. Their books that I use will be listed in my must have cookbooks tab.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

In honor of eating healthy natural foods I decided to show everyone how easy it is to make whole wheat pancakes from scratch. {easier than Krusteaz!} ok, not easier, but not too much harder.  Everything I will ever post on this blog will of course always be from scratch with no processed ingredients. I just wanted to do something simple that everyone can do and enjoy.  The best thing about scratch pancakes is that it only takes a few ingredients that you should already have in your cupboard.  These also freeze well, so make a bunch and freeze them so you have a good breakfast even when your morning is crazy.  Just warm them in the microwave or toaster.
You will need:

8 oz. (about 1 3/4 cups) Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tbs. Honey
1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
1 Tbs. Baking Powder
2 Large Eggs
2 Cups Milk
4 Tbs. Applesauce

Makes 12 pancakes

Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until just blended.  DO NOT over mix. Its ok if there are a couple lumps.  They will be tough if you whisk them too much.

Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup (slightly under-filled... about 2/3 full), pour batter onto 350 degree griddle.  
Cook the pancakes until golden brown on the bottom and starting to set up on the sides. Then flip and cook the other side. They should puff up. Do not touch them or else it will deflate. Pancakes should never be flipped more than once. Let them cook until golden brown.

Remember I said to read the labels on the things you eat. Don't forget I have a job, a very tiring job. Its ok to buy some things already made, just as long as you know what's in it..... Like this....
