  1. Soaked pancakes? Never heard of this, how do you make it? Whats the benefit?

  2. Lol. Sounds funny doesn't it?
    I've been looking into Nourishing Traditions style cooking.
    I've learned that by soaking grains, it neutralizes the phytic acid and helps break down starches to help in digestion. Soaking, fermenting, etc. all do this. And I'm sure I haven't described it properly! But I thought I'd try it and searched for a pancake recipe.
    The recipe I've used was found here -
    I'm still trying to get the flour soaking overnight. Thus far, I forget so it's only soaking for a few hours in the morning (so not enough to do what it's supposed to)but they are yummy! And I don't need to make a triple batch to feed us! lol :)

  3. I have that book! But I havent tried soaking my flour yet. Now you've inspired me to give it a try. :)
