Not quite as thin as true crepes, these light-as-a-feather pancakes are topped with preserves and a dusting of confectioners' sugar. They're elegant, so easy to make and say "Joyeux Noel" with delicious French flair!
"This recipe yields just a short stack of oat pancakes that's perfect for one or two," reports Florence Groves of Vancouver, Washington. "When we used to travel in our motor home, I'd measure out the dry ingredients for individual batches in resealable bags, then just combine with an egg, buttermilk and butter for a quick meal."
Our home economists created this flapjack recipe that uses buckwheat flour instead of the wheat-based variety. The light and tender pancakes offer a nutty flavor and hearty texture that are guaranteed to get your day of to a bright start.
This traditional oven-baked pancake is a sensational way to showcase fruit-and it makes an ideal holiday breakfast or brunch. If you prefer, sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve it with canned pie filling or other fruit.
During the week we have quick breakfasts...but on Saturday I like to make something special. This is one of our favorite recipes because the oatcakes and apple topping are a tasty, wholesome combination. They also can be made ahead so a hungry family doesn't have to wait long.
