Whole Wheat PancakesPosted: March 10, 2011
Pancakes… Who doesn’t love pancakes? They always invoke a sense of lazy morning awesomeness, where you get to basically eat a hot cake in a pan smothered with maple syrup, because its the weekend, and what else do you really have to do anyway? Sigh, with these crazy weeks I’ve been having, I wish that I could just sleep in and make pancakes every day.
This recipe post is from last weekend, by the way. Ha! Don’t I wish I had time to make pancakes on weekdays?
I served these tasty whole wheatie pancakes with local pears from Steve and Dan’s at the Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market. (FYI, they also sell their amazing fruit through eat local’s good food box, which is delivered straight to your door! Living local made easy? Yes please!!)
Hmm sirop d’érable! Canada’s gift to the world. Delicious. In recognition of les temps des sucres (sugar month) in Quebec, I will be doing a few more maple inspired posts, which will be as local as possible! Enjoy!
