If my face would have been comfortable pressed up against the oven glass door, that is where it would have been. As a child, I distinctly remember WAITING FOREVER by the oven door for those pop-up pancakes to "pop-up". It was fun watching my kids, particularly my 3 year old, get just as excited. Mom made them for us often, but I think I have her beat on this batch, because I don't remember them being whole wheat (although ww flour found it's way into almost everything else that I can recall). This is a breakfast favorite for me, because I can mix it up quick, throw it in the oven and get everyone ready and come back and they're all done... no flipping of pancakes... or should I say burning of pancakes. :) AWESOME. And, might I add, quite tasty. :)
Pop-Up Pancakes (healthyfoodshouldtastegood.com)
2 T butter
1 cup rice milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven 400 degrees. Melt butter. Pour half of butter into 9x13 dish (I did mine on a baking sheet, and I think it cooked faster). Using your washed hands, spread butter over bottom and sides of pan. This works better than cooking spray. In a separate bowl beat eggs well. Then add flour and mix well. Add remaining ingredients including the second half of the butter and mix well. Pour into the greased pan and bake for 20-25 minute. Serve warm.
