hot cakes, flap jacks, johnny cakes


Call these cakes what ever you want I call them good, cliche its true but you show me something better. Carb loading is what every athlete does before any big event. Carbs are good for you if you understand them.


We use carbs for our best ability.




Camelina seed pancakes, wild rice pancakes and sesame seed pancakes.


Serve the cakes up with some citrus syrup and you balanced the scale, you used carbs the right way.

Should my leg ever get better enough that I can run. I am eating these before my next race. With extra syrup.

I was just saying to myself: is that wild rice in that pancake? I LOVE wild rice.
Pass those right over to me, please.

I agree! I will have the ones with that seed. I have never heard of that one before, what is it?

seeing this makes me want butter and syrup... badly.

I love the seedy things on top to add texture and additional interest and I like the idea of citrus rather than overly sweet syrups.

I'm not a pancake eater, but your photos are fabulous as always! ;)

Sweta said...

Oh we love our carbs- couldn't do without them!!!!
The citrus syrup sounds perfect with the flap jacks :)

Marjie said...

I keep waffle batter in the house for anyone who wants carbs for breakfast. Nothing like them.

My Carolina Kitchen said...

I'll take two wild rice ones with plenty of sweet butter please.

Who says carbs are bad? meh! I've not heard of camelina seeds before, what purpose do they serve? Johnny cakes are usually made of corn, I've never had them! Yum!

Heff said...

I thought Johnny Cakes were those urinal disks for toilets !

Chef Fresco said...

I'm not usually a huge pancake fan, but these are tempting my taste buds! I like your creative additions!

Tangled Noodle said...

I'm no athlete but I am a huge proponent of carb-loading. Bring on those wild rice pancakes!

Jamie said...

Don't tell me! Are those chocolate shavings on a pancake? Oooh I want that one! I don't make these babies often enough. My son just called me from New Orleans asking me to post a pancake recipe so he can make them for the house. Now you just got me going!
