Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes

We love pancakes and waffles and I always prepare one or the other for breakfast once a week. I had some buttermilk in the fridge, so I decided to make some special Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes(courtesy of Food network.com) for Mansi’s balanced breakfast event. I served the pancake with butter, maple syrup, and macerated strawberries.


INGREDIENTS:

White oats – 1cup
All-purpose flour – 1cup
Raisin – 1/4cup
Brown sugar – 1/4cup
Baking powder – 1tsp
Baking soda – 1/4tsp
Cinnamon – 1/2 tsp
Buttermilk – 1/4cup
Milk – 1/2cup
Egg - 2
Unsalted butter, melted – 3tsp
Pure vanilla extract – 1tsp
Maple syrup – 1/4cup

Method:

In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, vanilla and butter. Then add the raisins, oatmeal and buttermilk and milk. Mix everything together and set aside.

In a separate bowl add the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder,Cinnamon and the salt) and mix together. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix with the whisk until just combined. Don't worry if the batter is a bit lumpy.

If necessary, lightly butter, oil, or spray your griddle. Preheat over medium heat.Be sure the pan is hot enough before starting to cook the pancakes. Spoon 1/3 cup of batter onto griddle for each pancake, allowing space for spreading, and use a back of your spoon to lightly press the batter into rounds.

When the underside of the pancake is golden and the tops are speckled with bubbles that pop and stay open, flip over and cook on the other side until light brown. This may take up to 5 mins depending on the size.
Serve immediately or place in oven while you make the rest of the batch.

Macerated Strawberries:

INGREDIENTS:

Strawberries, hulled and sliced - 5
Orange blossom honey – 3tsp
Finely chopped lemon zest – 1tsp
Ground black pepper – 1tsp
Sugar – 1/4cup

In a bowl combine all ingredients. Let stand in refrigerator for 2 hours. Serve butter, maple syrup with hot pancakes.

I am sending this delicious and healthy oatmeal pancakes to WBB#20-Balanced breakfast hosted by Mansi and started by Nadita of safforan trial.
