barley pancakes

I bought some stone ground whole grain barley flour from Shakefork Community Farm and whipped up some barley pancakes for the boys this morning. Its a bit of a different recipe that includes orange juice as a sweetener but still good all the same. It is a recipe by Melanie Olstad of Shakefork and is as follows:

Barley Pancakes
~10 - 3 to 4 inch pancakes

          2 large eggs
          3/4 cup milk
          1/2 cup orange juice
          1 teaspoon vanilla extract
          3 tablespoons unsalted butter
          2 tablespoons honey
          3/4 teaspoon salt
          1 1/2 cups whole barley flour
          2 teaspoons baking powder

Wisk together eggs, milk, orange juice, vanilla, melted butter, honey, and salt. Stir in barley flour. Allow mixture to rest at room temp while you thoroughly preheat griddle or cast iron pan.
Add baking powder right before cooking and stir in for about 15 seconds, until the leavening is completely dispersed. Pour about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook cakes until golden brown about 2 1/2 minutes each. Enjoy!
