These pancakes are perfect for holidays, house guests or lazy weekends. Surprise your partner with breakfast in bed and score some major brownie points! All of the prep work is done the night before allowing you to create a beautiful stack of pancakes in about 20 minutes the next day.
My sweet friend recently travelled across the country and brought me back the most delicious partridge berry syrup. If you can find this, use it! One of the things I love most about food is it’s ability to allow you to explore new cultures and traditions without leaving home. If you can’t find partridge berry syrup top these with pure maple syrup, butter, honey blueberries, honey peaches, coconut cream or whipped cream.
Fluffy Overnight Pancakes:
– 3 cups all purpose flour, or a mix of whole wheat and white flour
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 2 1/2 cups buttermilk, kefir, almond or coconut yogurt, or almond or coconut milk
– 2 eggs or 2 flax eggs
– 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons avocado or grapeseed oil, melted coconut oil, or butter if you are feeling extra naughty
– 1 teaspoon active dry yeast (optional, if you don’t have any on hand just omit)
In a mixing bowl, mix first 4 ingredients. Make a well in the center and pour in remaining ingredients, including the yeast if using. Mix until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge. Skip and dance to bed knowing that in the morning you will be in for an amazing breakfast with minimal work ❤
In the morning take your bowl out of the fridge. Heat a pan over medium heat. I love my cast iron, but use what you have. Once your pan is hot carefully scoop your batter into your pan. I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and it works perfectly. Be gentle with the batter as bubbles will have developed overnight and we don’t want to break them, giving you fluffy cloudlike pancakes. Cook until bubbles cover the exposed side of the pancake. Flip the pancake and continue cooking until both sides are golden. If the pancake burns before the middle is cooked, reduce the heat a little. Stack and eat!
Enjoy ❤ ❤
