Today is Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, and International Women's Day, all rolled into one.
In honour of such, and because I love it when someone else decides what's for supper, we made pancakes tonight. With sausage, apple sauce, and maple syrup, of course. Can't have an unbalanced, nutritionally deficient meal now, can we?
Not that I probably wouldn't have done that anyways.
You can change the flour and texture of these pretty dramatically by substituting some of the all purpose flour for whole wheat flour. I would only do 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup, however, as it will give you an extremely dense pancake. It will result in a very nutty-flavoured and hearty cake.
This recipe doubles and triples very nicely. The batter will keep in the fridge for a couple of days, although it will become more fluid.
And there you have it. Light, fluffy pancakes and a whole lot of dishes to wash.
