King Arthur Flour - Review and Giveaway for National Pancake Week

Photobucket
How many of you are on Twitter? Confession: I'm a little slow jumping on that bandwagon...until now! I've joined Twitter. Woah! What a new and confusing world of social networking. The good news is that now I'm more aware of what all my favorites are up to including my all time favorite flour company, King Arthur Flour. This weekend I saw a tweet from KAF saying it's National Pancake Week. Well that was a good enough reason as any to pull out the white whole wheat flour sent to me by King Arthur and whip up some pancakes for my family.

The link that KAF tweeted took me to their Pancakes with Panache post where I read that malted milk powder is one of their secret pancake ingredients. I have got to get my hands on some of that malt! (It looks tasty as well.)

The recipe I used for our pancakes was KAF's Homemade Whole-Grain Pancakes.  This whole-grain recipe is great because: a) it includes whole wheat flour and oats, two grains in one sweet breakfast treat and b) you can mix the dry ingredients ahead of time, store them in an air-tight container and use when you're ready for a healthier pancake mix. My only addition with this first batch of whole-grain pancakes was 2-3 over-ripe bananas that I mashed to a runnier consistency and added to the wet ingredients. The resulting pancake had a light consistency with a delicious nutty taste.

SHOP: Purchase your own white whole wheat flour and other products HERE.
