Ned's Fluffy Pancakes

Ned's Fluffy Pancakes
Ned Bell is an up-and-coming young Canadian Chef.

He is also co-owner of a local eatery here in town. I tried his pancakes the other day which are amazing as well as "good for you", but stay tuned for more next week in my continuing Canadian Chef's series. For now enjoy his delicious pancakes....I know I did...and I didn't eat this entire stack myself!!!!!

I am off boating on beautiful Kalamalka Lake today..I'll do my very best to not burn like a lobster!!!!

We will see if the camera works:D

**Ned’s Fluffy Pancakes**

2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk (250 ml)
1/2 cup melted butter (125 ml)
1 cup all-purpose flour (250 ml)
1 tablespoon brown sugar (15 ml)
3 teaspoon baking powder (15 ml)
1/2 teaspoon salt (2.5 ml)
1/2 cup rolled oats (125 ml)
1/4 cup dried bran (60 ml)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (2.5 ml)
pinch of nutmeg
2 bananas thinly sliced
1 tablespoon butter (15 ml) for griddle

Preheat non-stick griddle to 425┬║Fahrenheit (195┬║ Celsius).

Place eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter in a medium bowl and mix well.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Sift all the dry ingredients well and add the oats and bran.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently incorporate. Do not whisk, the batter should have some lumps. If batter is too thick add more buttermilk.

Gently stir in banana.

Melt butter evenly on hot griddle and spread all over grill.

Ladle pancake mixture about ½ cup (125 ml)onto griddle.

Flip pancakes when golden brown and little bubbles arise on surface. The pancake’s edges with lose their shine and become matted. Cook until the other side of the pancake is golden brown.
Serve with syrup and fresh fruit.

  1. These look wonderful, and similar to a recipe I make, but I would be terrified by all that butter (just in terms of my own health stuff - if I were younger and lighter, what the heck, then), but what is dried bran? Is that what we might call oat bran? Is it wheat bran? Enjoy your boating!

  2. Quaker makes a dried bran. It is called natural wheat bran, excellent for muffins or sprinkled on your cereal:D

  3. I like the addition of all that extra fibre. What a great start to the day!

  4. Wow! These would be great with my leftover blueberry sauce!

  5. Vall this look absolutely nice and yummy!! love it! Gloria

  6. Those look wonderful! I love fluffy pancakes!



  7. I haven't had pancakes in way too long.

  8. Yum, I love all the healthy additions to the pancakes.

  9. Oh these look so nice and fluffy! I love them stacked high like that!
    Slap on the SPF, have a fun weekend!!!

  10. These really look wonderful & full of flavor. I love the idea of bananas in the pancake--a nice change from blueberries. Is it better to use ripe or firm, or does it matter?

  11. We all love pancakes .. though I have tried to slow down the frquency because of those pounds I am trying to get rid of .. but I have sent your link to a friend who is younger, does not need to care about weight, and loves pancakes! The pic looks great

  12. Pancakes look delicious! Hope you enjoyed your day in the sun...I would love to have some sun!!

  17. These are crazy beautiful! And I'm 100% certain that the health benefits of those gorgeous blueberries offsets the butter in the batter. It does in my mind at least!
