Soaked Pancakes


  • 1 cup of whole white wheat flour or spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1/4 cup whey or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or sucanat
  • 2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder


  • About 12 hours before you plan to cook the pancakes, mix together the flour, water, whey and apple cider vinegar. Cover it and leave it sit on the counter.
  • After 12 hours, drain any excess liquid off of the top (sometimes there is none) and mix in the butter, eggs, salt, syrup and baking powder.
  • If the batter is too thick, add a little water or milk.
  • Cook in a heated skillet or on a cast iron griddle until the pancake begins to appear less shiny on top. Flip once and cook until golden brown.
  • Serve with lots of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.
