Soaked Pancakes Recipe

David says this is a recipe they use a lot in their home.  Soaked pancakes sound a little soggy, but according to the Nourishing Cook, these really aren't.  

Recipe is from Nourishing Traditions Cookbook

Yield: Makes 16-20 pancakes


2 cups freshly ground whole wheat pastry flour (or spelt, kamut flour)
2 cups yogurt, buttermilk or kefir
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 T melted butter


Soak flour in yogurt (or buttermilk/kefir) in warm place for 12-24 hours. After soaking time, stir in other ingredients and add water to obtain the desired thinness. Cook on a hot, oiled griddle or cast iron skillet. The pancakes cook longer than regular pancakes, and have a slightly chewy texture and mild sour taste, which is very pleasing. Serve with melted butter, real grade B maple syrup, raw honey, berry syrup, or fruit butter.
