Saturday Pancakes


We made pancakes today, so I thought I would share my recipe. (I don't have a photo of my pancakes, so you get a stork's nest instead.)

2 cups white whole wheat flour (I love this flour. It’s whole wheat with a consistency more like white. If you can’t find it, use ½ whole wheat and ½ white.)
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs (I use large or extra large)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (I use canola)
2 cups buttermilk to start and more if necessary to get the right consistency

Mix the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, oil, and 2 cups buttermilk. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Add more buttermilk to get the consistency you like for pancake batter. You may have to add more buttermilk later, as the batter may thicken a little.

I am no great shakes at anything done in a frying pan, so I won’t offer advice. Hopefully you or someone you know is good at it. This morning’s worked fine, but I give the credit to luck. :)

These are also nice with broken nut pieces (pecans or walnuts), which can be added to the batter or dropped onto the pancake just after the batter is ladled into the pan.

This should feed about 4 people, more or less...

We use various syrups according to taste – Maple Grade A, Maple Grade B, or Agave. All good!

Release Day... was almost 5 days ago.

I'm late with this... No excuse except that in doing other blogs I forgot this one...but Bewitched By His Kiss came out on May 1st! It's Book Two of the May Day Mischief novella duet. It's available in both e-book (many places) and audio format (

England, 1804

Lucasta Barnes knows the folly believing in magic can lead to—and she won't accept that her illicit tryst with a notorious rake was the result of anything more than pure lust. Or that it has bonded them together forever. Yet, she can't deny that she yearns for just one more night in his arms…

David, Earl of Elderwood, is known as an enchanter of women, but ever since a passionate encounter with Lucasta three years ago, he desires only her. How can he convince his thoroughly practical paramour that love is the greatest magic of all?
