CBD Recipe: Healthy CBD Pancakes4 December 2020
A recipe for CBD pancakes? Surely that can’t be a healthy idea? Well, that depends just how you bake them. Pancakes can be a high-calorie breakfast or lunch, and a big stack will do well for an evening meal. Most regard them as a special treat for children or festive occasions – though pancakes have a magical ability to release the inner child in any adult, too. Yet pancakes can be healthy too; especially if you add a few drops of CBD to the mix! That’s why we’re sharing our modern take on an all-time classic: here’s our special house recipe for American CBD pancakes!
Start A New Tradition: Pancake Day
All families have their own special traditions. From a culinary perspective, these home rituals may include having fish on Fridays, planning pizza Saturdays, or a million other culinary customs. We suggest starting a new tradition: how about Pancake Tuesday? They’re quick and easy to make, and they’re sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Another great thing about pancakes is their endless possibilities: just go crazy with your choice of toppings and you’ll serve something new and amazing every Pancake Monday, Tuesday, or any day from now on…
Many countries and cultures have their own brand of pancake. There’s the traditional Dutch pancake; the French have their crêpes; Mexico is famous for its wraps, and Russian blini is another pancake celebrity. We’re focussing on the classic American pancake today, although you are free to experiment with your own particular brand of CBD pancakes. Simply adjust the ingredients in the recipe below to your personal preferences, and add CBD oil. If you’re looking for some wild inspiration, check out these examples and pick your favourite. For now though, here’s the basic CBD pancakes recipe we love best:
The Best CBD Pancakes
Recipe for about 7 American CBD Pancakes
- 120g flour;
- 8g baking powder;
- ½ tbsp. baking soda;
- 1 tsp. sugar;
- 1 egg;
- 15g butter;
- 150ml buttermilk;
- Pinch of salt;
- 4 drops of CBD Oil
Put the butter in a bowl and melt it in the microwave; don’t overdo it and cook the butter though! Now, add all ingredients in a big mixing bowl and mix them well. Depending on your local pancake traditions, the batter for these American CBD pancakes may be a bit thicker than you’re used to. Place a frying pan on the stove and heat butter or cooking oil. Wait until the pan is sizzling hoy and use a ladle to add the batter. You could of course try to pour the batter straight from the bowl, but you may end up with more pancake batter around the kitchen than in your pancakes if you’re not careful.
Your typical American pancake is smaller than the average wrap, crêpe, or Dutch pancake. Ideally, they should be about the same diameter as a breakfast plate; six inches or 15cm is perfect. Once on the stove, the batter of your CBD pancakes ought to rise slightly. This causes the typical fluffy texture that made American pancakes a global hit. It;s due to the boaking soda and the buttermilk in this recipe. Watch for bubbles on the pancake’s surface: they are your sign that it’s time to flip the pancake over.
Once one side is done, flip the pancake and briefly bake the remaining side. Aim for that perfect golden-brown colour. Remove the pancake from the frying pan and make a neat little stack on an extra plate you have waiting. Adding fresh pancakes on top will help keep the bottom of the pile warm. Add new oil or butter if needed to prevent your next pancake from burning.
Toppings For Your CBD Pancakes
This is it: you’ve baked your stack of CBD pancakes; now it’s time to add your topping of choice. Of course, there’s always maple syrup as a popular favourite, but there’s way more to explore, including healthier toppings. If you top off your CBD pancakes with fresh fruit, for instance, you’ll be packing a wholesome vitamin boost to your meal. Strawberries, blueberries, or apples make delicious candidates for toppings too, as do bananas. Savoury options include cheese, bacon, and even grilled vegetables if you’re willing to try some healthy alternatives. Just let your imagination run wild and you’ll think of enough varieties for a whole year of Pancake Days!
So, if you’re still wondering what to have for dinner tonight, you can hardly go wrong with this CBD pancakes recipe. They’re equally great for serving a quick lunch or breakfast, so be sure to keep this recipe handy. Remember to add some CBD Oil to the mix for that extra special touch. Its soothing, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory potential will only add extra benefits to the meal you’re preparing. Time to head for the kitchen and get these healthy CBD pancakes on the table, pronto!
