Print Friendly

Enjoy pancakes made with whole grains.

Here is a pancake recipe, courtesy Bob’s Red Mill, that will open their sleepy eyes on a Sunday morning. Oatmeal Pancakes with Apples Flambe offers two kinds of whole grains, with steel-cut oats and Bob’s 10-Grain Pancake Waffle Mix. We’d serve these with fresh cut fruit and turkey sausages or bacon on the side. Bob’s Red Mill has a wide variety of flours, whole meal products, gluten free products, entrees, baking mixes, gift packs and lots more. Check out Bob’s here.

Oatmeal Pancakes with Apples Flambe
1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups 10-Grain Pancake Waffle Mix
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Butter or coconut oil for pan

Apples for flambe
2 diced Granny Smith apples
4  tablespoons butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup Scotch Whiskey (Use medium quality – poor quality won’t taste as good)

For Pancakes: Soak oats in buttermilk for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. Do not cook oats – this will make your pancakes too dense.

Whisk eggs into buttermilk soaked oats (there should still be some liquid buttermilk, so this should be quite a moist mixture). Whisk in pancake mix. If batter is too thick, whisk in some extra buttermilk. When smooth, whisk in sugar and spices. Leave for 10 minutes. There should be bubbles at the top of the batter, signifying that the mix has a lot of air in it.

Melt some butter or coconut oil in a pan over medium/high heat. Use a 1/2-cup measuring cup to scoop batter into the pan. When bubbles rise to the top of the pancake, flip.
For the Apples: While the batter is resting, melt 4 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Toss apples with brown sugar and cinnamon and add to the melted butter. Let the apples continue to cook down until they are soft, but not too mushy.
When you are about ready to serve, add whiskey to apples and light on fire with a long lighter or kitchen matches. The fire will be big at first but will burn down fairly quickly. When it is pretty low, you can simply blow it out. (Remember, don’t do this with children around, or let an inexperienced cook at your home do this. Also, have a metal pan or pan cover to put over the fire if you need to douse it. Also remember, when flambeing, never pour alcohol straight out of the bottle,as this can catch the whole bottle on fire and make it explode.
Measure out the specified amount and pour from a glass or measuring cup.*
Spoon apples and whiskey sauce over pancakes and serve. You can also top with whipped cream or creme anglaise.
Serves 4.
