Recipe Daniel's Cajun Pancakes


Staff member
2 cups white flour
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 package yeast or 1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 large cooking spoon of olive oil
4 1/2 cup milk or to desired consistency
2 tbsp cinnamon
Oil for cooking.

Combine and mix dry ingredients. Add oil and milk. Mix well but do not overbeat. Cook in large pan or griddle.

MawMaw adds: To prevent tough or rubbery pancakes, add cooking spray or oil to the preheated pan; pour batter and heat until the dough's air bubbles create tiny caverns on the pancake's surface and the edge turns a golden brown. Turn once and remove as soon as the under-surface is brown. Depending on thickness and temperature of the griddle, pancakes should cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side.

Serve with favorite syrup; this recipe can be doubled for large families. If cooking for large families, remove pancakes to a warm cookie sheet or platter and cover with a lighty moist towel until all pancakes are cooked.
