Oatmeal Pancakes

 
I asked Moe what he wanted for dinner and he jokingly said pancakes.    You really should be careful what you ask for...............



He not only had pancakes for dinner last night but he had them again for breakfast this morning.   

Before leaving for work yesterday morning I mixed two cups of oatmeal with two cups of sour cream.  The original Oatmeal Pancake recipe calls for buttermilk, which I was out of, so I used sour cream.  Buttermilk, Sour Cream, Plain Yogurt - I use them interchangeably in all my baking.

After mixing up the batter I thinned it out with a little milk.


The pancakes for dinner were served with a side of double smoked bacon.


Breakfast was pancakes again, minus the bacon.

The flavour of these pancakes remind me of my favourite Oatmeal Cookie.

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups buttermilk (Substitute Sour Cream or Yogurt)
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt


Combine oats and buttermilk. Refrigerate overnight.

Add two eggs. Add melted and cooled butter.

Mix in separate bowl: Flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

Stir flour mixture into oat mixture until moist.

Preheat griddle and then dollop about 1/4 c of batter for each pancake.



Julia's Note: I have no idea where this recipe came from, but it is a good one. It comes together very quickly in the morning, especially if you prepare the flour base the night before when you mix the buttermilk and oats together.

  1. Ann, Oatmeal Pancakes have always been a classic favorite at my house.
    Your photo is a true testament of how delicious they are. And if I drooled anymore, I'd probably short-circuit my keyboard.

    Btw, I've never subbed sour cream for buttermilk before; I'll keep that tip in mind.

  4. Pancakes for supper is one of my favorite things! My grandma used to make us potato pancakes...we loved them...no onions in hers and lots of syrup.
    Your oatmeal version looks delish! Marking it to try when the kids are down this month.
