Light As A Feather Pancakes

Saturday mornings are just the best....unless your kid has an early morning soccer game and it's drizzling and windy outside!  But on those Saturday mornings when you've got some free time and a special breakfast seems like a good idea, here is a pancake recipe that is wonderful:

Light As A Feather Pancakes

1-1/4 Cups GF flour mix (I like 4 flour bean mix best)--see March 6 post for flour mix recipes
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1-1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1-1/4 Cups buttermilk
1/4 Cup sour cream
3 large eggs, separated
2 Tbsp butter, melted

(wheat-eaters--substitute regular flour and eliminate xanthan gum)  Whisk dry ingredients together.  Stir buttermilk and sour cream together in a bowl.  Add egg yolks and melted butter to buttermilk mixture; stir well.  Beat egg whites to soft peaks.

Pour buttermilk mixture over dry ingredients and whisk until just combined (batter should be lumpy with visible streaks of flour).

Using spatula, fold whites into batter until just combined.  Do not overmix.

Cook on hot greased griddle.  Makes about 8-10 four inch pancakes.

These are light and delicious--just how pancakes ought to be.  The picture shows good ol' butter and syrup on top, but if you want to make them healthier, try:
peanut butter or other nut butters
an easy-over cooked egg on top (for those who need a little protein at breakfast)
sliced bananas with syrup on top (my personal favorite)
a quart of peaches put in your blender and pureed, then used like syrup (my kids' favorite)
any fresh fruit in season (think berries-yum!) with whipped cream on top
jam, jelly, honey, brown sugar, powdered sugar, or Smuckers fruit syrups (OK, they're not healthier, but sometimes a nice change-up :)

If you have something that you love on pancakes, send it along in a comment and I'll publish it!

Happy Saturday mornings!
