When we feed Sweet William spinach, he makes an ugly face. Fortunately, his nanny and best friend, Madelynn, is an ace in the kitchen. She devised a spinach pancake recipe that he loves. These green pancakes are good warm or at room temperature and they travel well. We keep a batch in the freezer.
Madelynn’s Spinach Pancakes
(Use organic ingredients when possible.)
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 – 10 oz. package of frozen spinach, thawed and finely chopped
Mix the flour and baking powder.
Add the egg and oil and mix.
Add the spinach and mix well until batter is green, adding water to achieve desired consistency.
Heat a lightly oiled skillet on medium. Pour and cook in perfect little circles for perfect little hands!
