Spelt Flour Pancakes

As good as regular pancakes. This is a slightly revised recipe from one I got off the web quite some time ago. There are a lot of good pancake recipes out there, along with a bunch of not so good ones. This one works for me.

- Buttermilk, 1 cup (I used 2% milk mixed with a little lemon juice.)
- Egg, 1
- Flour, 1 cup
- Baking Powder, 2 tsp
- Baking Soda, 1/2 tsp
- Sugar, 1 tbs
- Fat, 1 tbs (I used a light olive oil. The recipe calls for melted butter.)
- Salt, pinch
- Butter (for greasing pan or griddle)
- Butter and Maple Syrup (for enjoying the finished product)

- Preheat pan or griddle
- Mix dry ingredients
- Add wet ingredients to the dry ones
- Whisk everything together briefly leaving the batter lumpy
- Add butter to hot pan/griddle/skillet
- Pour batter on the hot pan (I use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to keep batter distribution somewhat even and neat.)
- Once bubbles appear on the uncooked surface of the pancakes flip them (Also, if the part of the pancake on the pan is darkening too quickly lower the heat and flip.)
- If making a bunch they can be kept warm in a 200 degree oven (And the oven can be used to heat the syrup at the same time.)

I trust the recipe and instructions were likely not necessary, but I'm snowed in, so I had the time. They're good.

Is that a new plate?

Nope (depending on your definition of new). It's just on the counter during the day, not the dining room table at night.
