Well, dear blog readers, let me answer your querying glances at the computer screen with a resounding YES--there is a whole cup of shredded cheddar cheese in these fluffy round hotcakes of goodness and to quite delicious results, I might add. The cheese adds richness, taste, and protein while maintaining the pleasant crisp/soft texture that make this stack of pancakes as unique as they are good! I highly recommend butter, jam, and powdered sugar on top to make the savory/sweet connection complete! Enjoy!
1 cup milk
1 large egg
1 Tbs. oil
1 Tbs. honey or sugar (I used honey)
1 cup whole-wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Desired toppings: butter, jam, powdered sugar, etc
Directions: In a medium size bowl, mix together milk, egg, oil, and honey (or sugar). Add whole-wheat flour, baking powder, and salt and stir just until combined. Gently fold in shredded cheese.
Spoon by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot greased griddle and cook until golden brown on both sides. Makes about 10 pancakes. To keep pancakes hot until ready to serve, place finished pancakes on a cookie sheet, then cover with foil and place in the oven on WARM.
Serve hot with butter, jam, and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
