Applesauce Whole Wheat Pancakes
Bah I have no measuring tools. I've been using my glasses as measurements but I don't know what half a cup is. You'd think I'd know after making pancakes for myself with 1/2 cup measurements 4 days a week for the past year, but no, no. No idea. The thing is, my problem is portion control. If you place me at a buffet I can eat them out of business. My stomach knows no limits, and that's why I like to measure everything and make sure I'm eating healthy portion sizes. So to be safe, with my small glass, I'm... I think I could be just doing 1/4 cups, I don't know. The point is, because of that, look at how flat these sad pancakes are.
They were yummy but I would've liked them to be fluffier.
With the following measurements you should be able to get fluffy pancakes..well, fluffier than this I hope. Or..I don't know why they weren't fluffy to be honest :(
In case you missed my last post, I'm currently in a newly furnished house in Berlin with a..rather deprived kitchen.
And I don't speak German so it's a bit difficult at the supermarket with my little dictionary on my phone. I think I got baking powder.... that shouldn't have been the problem...
I'm working form 9 to 18:30 every weekday, and then I'm the typical tourist when I'm not working so there's really very little time to cook. And I have no internet at home so I have to use it at the office when people aren't watching to post on Happy Belly. Apologies.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp honey
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup milk
Mix the dry ingredients together. Whisk all the other ingredients together and whisk in the dry mixture.
Heat a non stick pan over medium high heat and fry the pancakes in batches, about a minute or two each side. You'll know to flip when the edges are set and you've got bubbles on the surface.
