Talena's Pancake Recipe

Wednesday, March 15, 2006

The night before, put the following to soak in a covered bowl:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (freshly ground is best, but not mandatory)
1 1/2 cups kefir

Soak at least 7 hours.

In the morning, add:

2 tbsp. olive oil
1-2 tbsp. Rapadura (unprocessed sugar)
1 tbsp. baking powder (aluminum-free)
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 tsp. natural sea salt (additive-free)


Add in 1/3 cup blueberries, or add-in of your choice. (These make for flatter pancakes, though. I don't know why.)

Mix and fry on medium-low heat, just like regular pancakes. These will be slightly moister and heavier than regular pancakes, with a pleasant sourdough-like taste.

  1. Hey, T. Where do you get Rapadura from?

    it's so pure-ah

    Thank you.

  2. (Giggle!) I like your poem!

    Select health food stores carry Rapadura--I know Nutters in Red Deer carries it, so if you haven't found any up there by then, get some while you're down next month. However, call around and see if anybody up there has it. Or, you would probably be able to either order it on the Internet, or get another health food store in Canada to ship it to you if you called a paid over the phone.

    There's a store in G.P. that carries it, so I could get some for you and ship it up if you want. (I could do the same for Kefir starter, too, although I think that's supposed to stay refrigerated.)

  3. If you shipped it up right now it would be refrigerated. :)

    I'll check into places around here first.

    You're great! I like you.


  4. I had thought of that, but I wasn't sure what would happen to the culture if it were actually to get frozen. Would all the little bacteria die, or just go into suspended animation?

    Deep thoughts...
