Whole-wheat aluminum-free pancakes

On Tuesday, I made this makeshift whole wheat pancake recipe:

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 heaping 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 heaping 1/8 teaspoon iodized salt
0.25 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
A few tablespoons avocado oil
Water (enough to make it the right consistency)

I tried it again the next day (Wednesday), except I added more water, and inositol (for the nutrition; I don't suppose it changed the flavor or texture). This time, they were a lot thinner. Because it's whole wheat and I didn't want super thick pancakes, both times, I helped spread the batter out manually with a spoon after putting it in the pan (but with the thinner batter, it made thinner pancakes, and more of them). It strangely tasted a lot like crepes, the second time (notwithstanding they weren't crepes, and were thicker than crepes). The pancakes were pretty soft and fluffy (both times), and quite sweet. Anyway, they were pretty good. I cooked them on medium heat in a 12" cast-iron pan (preheating at 6, starting the pancakes after a while, and going down to 5 as the pan heated up more, on a big electric burner).

It seems best to make one pancake per pan at a time, with this recipe. They can be big, though.

Re: Whole-wheat aluminum-free pancakes

Okay, I finally have a good whole-wheat aluminum-free pancake recipe that is super easy, fluffy, and nutritious:

* 1 cup whole wheat flour
* Just over ¼ teaspoon baking soda
* Just under ¼ teaspoon iodized salt
* Three eggs
* Cold tapwater

I mixed the eggs with the flour before adding water. I made them in a 10-inch cast-iron pan, oiled with avocado oil, heated to 6 (just over medium), on a large electric burner.

The recipe made three large pancakes. They were nice and fluffy. Very good with butter and jam. If you don't add sweet pancake toppings, they're not sweet, of course, but you shouldn't notice that if you do.

This is easier than the first recipe I mentioned, and makes much thicker pancakes. The eggs make it extra nutritious (and make larger pancakes possible).
