Carrot Cake Pancakes

Usually with these farm fresh posts, you never see a lot of baking, because my share is chock full of vegetables.  But every now and then, amazing things happen.  You see, this is the first weekend in oh 97 weekends that we haven’t had something big happening.  No one in from out of town, no traveling, no dinner parties or grand weekend black holes of time. This, was an empty Saturday morning with time for me to do something I hardly get to do: Make a full on breakfast. And while the usual suspects made their appearances, (you know, bacon, eggs, etc.) I felt like something special to celebrate this once in a not often enough free morning: Carrot Cake Pancakes. It’s amazing what a few pantry items and a few carrots can do to your pancakes.  Pretty much change the route of your entire day, is what.  Because when a normal pancake turns into a carrot cake one, it is physically impossible for your day to be a bad one. And I hope this encourages you to see the sweeter possibilities of your CSA box.  You don’t always have to think in terms of lunch and dinner with your CSA.  The possibilities are endless, and moderately healthy, I might add.

Carrot Cake Pancakes



In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and raisins.  In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, brown sugar, carrot and vanilla.  Add the wet and dry ingredients together, and set aside for 10 minutes.  Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a nonstick pan, and place 1/4 cup of the batter into the hot skillet, and flip once, cooking about 2 minutes per side. To make the yoghurt topping, combine the noosa and maple syrup.  Top pancakes with 1 tablespoon of the yoghurt mixture and as much maple syrup as desired.
Love, Whit
