So do you make pancakes at home? Or do you just enjoy it but do not bother about flour what is used to make pancakes? Haha, if you do cook at home & think about health & taste then I am sure, you do bother. Different flour can create different taste & certainly add different nutrient value. So what flour for pancakes do you use at home?
When I used to make pancakes once a month that time it is not a big deal but if you want to make it very often then you will definitely do a lot of experiments with flour for pancakes. Is it not true?
Though all-purpose flour is most commonly used flour for pancakes but there are a lot of options available to make pancake mix. Though I personally find there is nothing more delicious than a pancake made with all-purpose flour. But still, I prefer to make it with different types of flour to bring a different taste for different purpose & mood.
What flour for pancakes did you try ever?
Here I have mentioned those flour what I have used to make pancakes until today. I hope you have definitely used some of those. Though this list is not exhaustive because there may be so many other flours what you may have used in different places & regions.
All-purpose flour: No doubt, all-purpose flour you have used so many times to make fluffy pancakes. It is often used to make traditional pancakes. I do also prefer to combine it with other types of flour to bring YUM factor in taste but such experiments were not always successful.
Wheat flour: I have rarely tried this whole wheat flour because do not like this taste and it also looks dull. Wheat flour made pancakes taste like sweet fluffy Indian roti. I usually try with a combination of all-purpose flour. 1:1 or 1:2 ratio of whole wheat flour vs all purpose flour.
Corn flour: I prefer to use corn flour to make vegetable pancakes. It can be used with any other types of flours. Corn flour for pancakes is the best option if you want to make it little crispy instead of fluffy. Though many people also love to mix it with all-purpose flour to increase its nutrient value.
Lentil flour: So what flour for pancakes do you prefer? Is it lentil flour like Bengal gram flour or split gram flour? Did you ever try this to make a pancake? Though it is not popularly used but as it is said lentils have a good percentage of protein, so I prefer to add it to pancakes for healthy breakfast.
Almond flour: Another option of flour for pancakes. I do not prefer this because of cost & calorie. But I have seen some people love to use this flour, though the reason is unknown to me but you can help me to know it, haha.
Coconut flour: I love flavor of coconut. It creates different taste once you add coconut flour. Did you ever try this? But I rarely tried it because coconut flour is not easily available in our area. But once I buy a fresh coconut from market then I will never want to make it flour because I love fresh grated coconut in many dishes.
Rice flour: Rice flour pancakes also often use to make a pancake. In Asia, particularly in South East Asia, it is a very popular item to make various dishes. It is also very widely used item to make various Indian dishes. Being an Indian I prefer to use it to make my morning breakfast, even pancakes too.
