Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine milk and lemon juice in a bowl and set aside to sour, about 5 minutes. Add beaten egg and melted butter; stir to combine.

  • Combine spelt flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir gently into milk mixture until just combined; batter will be lumpy.

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

You can also use vinegar instead of lemon juice to sour the milk or use 3/4 cup of buttermilk instead. Olive oil can be used instead of melted butter for the batter.

These are my go-to pancakes that I always make for my family I love them! Spelt results in a fluffier texture than whole wheat flour yet is still whole grain and I love that. I often add different fruits nuts and spices to the mix. A favorite is fig walnut and cinnamon. Try these you won't be disappointed! Read More

This recipe is very similar to the Fluffy Pancakes recipe in AR and as I only buy spelt flour I ve made this recipe several times. It s excellent. I would put out a request to anyone who knows how to make this substituting goat milk for cow. I ve tried a few times to curdle it with vinegar but alas no joy! I use Meyenberg goat milk the only one o can find here. Read More
