Another Conference Weekend–Blender Pancakes with Maple Butter

08 Apr


I love conference.  I love the talks, I love the music, and I love attending church in my pajamas.  It is tradition that we have breakfast for dinner on conference Sunday.  I want to just enjoy the day and not be making a big meal and my family loves breakfast foods.  Last October I posted our omelette bar and said that our usual was blender pancakes and breakfast pizza but that we were trying something new.  I also said that I would post the recipe for the pancakes and pizza later that day.  Well it is six months later and I still haven’t posted them.  We had them today for our conference breakfast and I will finally get around to posting them.  This is my family’s favorite breakfast(dinner) hands down.  I have been making these pancakes for years and they are amazing.  They are so light that you can down a dozen before you realize it.  You have to serve them with the maple butter-no subsitutions period. I can almost convince myself that this is health food because it is made with whole wheat flour. But I think the big scoop of maple butter takes it out of that category. I hope you like these as much as we do. I think they will become one of your favorites also.

 I will post the breakfast pizza next.


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup milk

2 eggs

1 tsp. soda

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 TB sugar

1/2 cup oil

Mix together in a blender until well combined.  This is a fairly runny batter.  That is what makes them so light.   I make these a little smaller than our usual pancakes–makes me feel better about eating so many.  Do not over cook.  Serve with a nice scoop of maple butter.



1 square of softened butter

1/2 cup maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla ( it calls for one but I always like to double my vanilla)

Blend togther until smooth.  I usually do this in my Cuisinart.  Spread over hot pancakes

I know this is just combining what you would usually put on pancakes–butter and syrup but there is something about combining them that takes them over the top.  I could eat this stuff with a spoon-wait a minute I do!!!


Just another one of my kitchen gadgits from Williams and Sonoma.  It is a batter dispenser.  Fill it up with the pancake batter and then you just squeeze out the batter over the hot griddle.  I know you could just spoon it on or use a cup or something but it just would not be as much fun.  Kind of reminds me of the ketchup and mustard dispensers I see the people use at McDonalds when they are mass producing their hamburgers. I knew I missed my calling in life.
