Whole Wheat Pancakes

I just made this for my family and they loved it! I got this recipe from an Alton Brown recipe book I own.

What you will need:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 tlbs. sugar

2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
4 tlbs. unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

What you do:

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a seperate bowl. Dump wet ingredients in dry ingredient bowl all at once. Mix until just moistened. DO NOT OVERMIX!
This is what it will look like. Real lumpy with bits of dry flour still in it.

Ladel one scoop of batter over hot griddle and cook until bubbles form in the batter and bottom is golden brown. Flip pancake and cook other side about 2 more minutes.

Tip: I used brown sugar instead of white sugar and added a bit of cinnamon. Yummy!
Tip 2: I never have buttermilk on hand so I just add one tablespoon of lemon juice per cup of milk and let it sit for a few minutes. Works great.
