Cook's Hideout: Pancakes with Multigrain Flour and buttermilk

Pancakes with Multigrain Flour and buttermilk

Today I have a healthy and nutritious multigrain pancakes. I recently borrowed this 'Good to the Grain: Baking with Whole grain flours' cookbook from the library. I was hoping to find a bread recipe for this month's Breadbakers 'Breads with Ancient grains' theme. Unfortunately most of the recipes in this book had whole wheat flour in them.

But I did find a few recipes that looked very good and these pancakes made with Multigrain flour is one of them. There is a master recipe for multigrain flour mix that can be made in large quantity and kept in the pantry along with your other flours. It can be used in place of or along with other flours in any of your baking recipes.

If you want to make a big batch of this multigrain mix, then combine 1 cup each of whole-wheat flour, oat flour, barley flour and 1/2cup of millet flour and rye flour. Use 1cup of this mix along with 1cup of wholewheat flour to make the pancakes. If not just follow the measurements for the flours given below.

I was skeptical how the family would like the combination of different flours and the taste of buttermilk, but none of them seemed to notice anything. They were too busy enjoying these fluffy and delicious pancakes. They tasted amazing and I got a big thumbs up from both the kids :-)
