Recipe submitted by DaVita dietitian Becky from Texas.

Portions: 9 pancakes (about 18 medium-sized pancakes)     Serving size: 2 medium-sized pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil

Preparation

  1. Make sour milk: add 1 tablespoon vinegar to 2 cups milk. Let sit for about 5 minutes until soured.
  2. Sift flour; add baking soda, salt and sugar.
  3. Beat eggs with mixer until fluffy. Combine with “sour” milk and oil.
  4. Add dry ingredients and beat until smooth.
  5. Cook on a hot griddle or heated frying pan, greased with nonstick cooking spray until bubbly. Turn only once for fluffy, light pancakes.

Renal and renal diabetic food choices

  • 1-1/2 starch
  • 1/2 milk
  • 1/2 salt

Carbohydrate choices

1-1/2

Helpful hints

  • Sour milk is used instead of buttermilk, which is higher in sodium.
  • The griddle must be hot. It is hot enough if a drop of batter sizzles.
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter for medium-sized pancake.
  • As soon as bubbles form, flip over.
  • This recipe is easy to cut in half. Leftover batter can be stored in sealed container for several days in refrigerator.

I enjoyed this recipe for the pancakes.However, I used Whole Wheat flour & sprinkled a bit of ground cinnamon power in the mix.Likewise, I find that mixing up the 2 cup batch as a time, makes for an easy start the next morningUmeone

Thanks for the recipe, am new to the renal diet so finding foods I can eat within the restrictions I have is great. I made this for my family this morning and we all enjoyed them, they were definitely a different texture but still great. I did how ever have to add a little more flower to thicken up the batter, at first it was more like crepes.

Doubled sugar, added 1tsp. Vanilla and cut milk back to 1 1/2 cups. Pancakes were a little thin but my family liked them!

For those of you that tried it, did you use baking soda or carbonated soda? Moderator comment: The correct ingredient is baking soda. I will update the recipe to clarify. Thanks for your comment Norma!

Found the mix a little loose. Next time I'll mix with a spoon instead of a mixer. I added blueberries to the pancake; this tasted great!

I left the oil out and just cooked with a little butter in the pan to keep them from sticking. Came out pretty yummy, my whole family enjoyed them. We used to use Bisquick and such to make our pancakes so it was a nice alternative to be able to still have my favorite breakfast food.
