Everyone loves homemade fluffy pancakes in the morning! The recipe I’m going to share with you today is one passed down to me from my mother. They are such a wonderful treat to look forward to in the morning! I always get a cheering “YAAAAAY!” from my children when I tell them I’m cooking pancakes for breakfast!
This recipe is the perfect recipe to keep on hand. You can add anything you want to them! Blueberries, strawberries, chocolate chips. My mom used to freeze drops of cream cheese and put them in the pancakes. Those were fantastic! But if you are like me, I almost always keep it simple and eat them plain.
Why you’re going to love these pancakes!
These pancakes are a traditional pancake, using sour cream to make them very soft and brown sugar to give them nice flavor. These are a family favorite and I’m sure you will love them too! My kids are always so excited when they know I’m making them for breakfast. It’s always sweet to see your children happy to eat something homemade, made from scratch!
Why I choose to use freshly milled flour
I choose to use freshly milled flour because I know it is better for my family and I. It retains all of it’s nutrients especially when used right after milling. Did you know that white flour from the store doesn’t have much of it’s natural nutrients in it? They have to strip it of everything good to keep it shelf stable. They “enrich” it with synthetic vitamins that are not as good for you as the real thing. Here is an article from healthline all about why freshly milled flour is better for you. The mill I use is one of the cheapest electric mills I’ve found yet. It is the Nutrimill classic. It has worked great for my milling needs! Here are the wheat berries I use. There are many different types of wheat berries, but I have found that this particular grain tastes the best, and has the best texture for this style of pancake.
Do you have to use freshly milled flour for this pancake recipe?
No, you do not have to use freshly milled flour for this recipe, their are many nutritious alternatives to white bleached flour. Before I had a Nutrimill, I used organic unbleached flour, and they tasted just as good! Sometimes you just need to do what you can do and that’s okay!
