Recipe Mari Loewen. Photography Karen Harrington.


3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups whole milk

3 tablespoons butter, melted

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Powdered sugar for serving

Vegetable oil for frying


In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients; set aside. In another bowl, whisk milk, butter, eggs and vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, and stir until just combined; batter will be lumpy. Heat 1-inch oil in large skillet to medium high heat and drop 1/4 cup portions of batter into oil. Fry each pancake for about 1-2 minutes each side or until puffed and golden. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
