when i go to the kitchen to make pancakes, i take the iPad with me. i need it because i'm trying a new recipe, obviously. probably from your blog. somehow i am always inclined to forget the pancakes i ate last time and am ready to give my heart to another. but the latest pancake trial was the 1970's pancakes from heart of light, and these will not be easy to forget. they were hearty and the right amount of fluffy. and yummy in a very wholesome, this is how a pancake should taste way.

the kind of yummy that finds you putting a pancake in the toaster at 4:00 in the afternoon for a little snack while you watch a re-run of friends. (this is why you freeze the leftover pancakes.)

rachel's hippie pancakes
lightly adapted from heart of light

2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 T. melted butter
1 tsp. honey (or 2 tsp. sugar)
1 cup buttermilk + 1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
sprinkle of cinnamon

mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. add melted butter to bowl.* whisk eggs and milks together and pour over dry ingredients. add the honey and cinnamon. stir just until combined. cook on a large cast iron skillet at medium-low temp for a couple minutes on each side, until golden brown. stack on a cookie sheet in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
*i like to add the butter to the bowl beforehand instead of whisking it into the milk and eggs so that it doesn't get clumpy in the cold mixture.

enjoy! and yes, there is a bowl of syrup on my plate because i've decided that i dip my pancakes. don't mind me. i've just never bought into the syrup-soaking-in concept.

Hey! I just started dipping my pancakes too! It's a lot nicer than soppy-soggy syrup drenched pancakes. I'm making a mental note to actually remember to try some of these delicious new pancake recipe you're always posting for my pancake-loving little boys' and my lunches sometime!

Glad you liked them! I like them because they're soooo different from buttermilk pancakes (which I also like, but which don't taste as hearty to me).
