Pancakes Revisted

I'm addicted to pancakes and want to try every variation. I don't know why but it's the food that I've been craving the most (outside of bacon, yes bacon!). So I decided to take my friend's advice and substitute half of the all purpose flour with white whole wheat flour, and the pancakes were just delicious, especially with the addition of frozen blueberries which are ideal for pancakes because they hold their shape better than fresh ones.

The one notable difference, and I don't necessarily think it's a bad one, is that they are more dense and less light. This makes sense given the use of white whole wheat flour. The flavor is more full and satisfying. The added bonus, especially for me, is that I wasn't hungry 30 minutes after breakfast like I normally am after eating a huge pancake breakfast.

Friends came down to join in on the fun and festivities, bringing much needed strawberries and peaches to reduce the carb load. Much merry making was had by all with the swapping of some amazingly hilarious short stories that should really be penned just so we can remember them with the clarity they truly deserve. We would have been rolling on the floor if not for the hard wood. Stories, like good food, are meant to be shared with people that you love and care about, like the meal we had today.
