Monday Eats - Flying Frisbees of Goodness

Abby T.  Lab here - Mom made my favorite flying Frisbees this morning after she shoveled the long driveway after we had several inches of snow in Chicagoland.  Dad is in England on business so she figures she deserves some pancakes and bacon for the extra work.  There's her excuse anyway.

I don't get syrup on mine, but they are FUN to catch and eat.

This is the best recipe ever and makes the lightest, most aerodynamic Frisbees ever with the best texture as well as lift over drag ratio!

In one bowl mix:

1 cup flour (Mom is allergic to malt which is in the cheap store flour - she uses White Lily or an organic flour such as Arrowhead Mills - they are both Malt free but if you see White Lily in Texas snag some - it's a Southern soft winter wheat, unlike the flours up north and makes the lightest and fluffiest biscuits, pancakes, muffins, and waffles)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
In small bowl mix

1 cup room temperature Kefir (Kefir is a drinkable yogurt found with or near the yogurt in th store in a quart sized bottle.  It is normally lactose free and full of probiotics - if you can't find it use buttermilk or milk soured with a tablespoon of lemon juice replacing a tablespoon of the milk.)
Splash of pure vanilla extract (about 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon)
1 egg (at room temperature) or equivalent egg substitute.

Whisk wet ingredients together, and then SLOWLY stream in while whisking - 

1/4 cup melted butter

Mix wet and dry ONLY until mixed (do not overmix) and cook on a griddle on which a drop of water sizzles.  The batter should be fairly thick.  If it is not (this should NOT be a pourable batter) add 1 Tablespoon of flour.

Don't make make them too big to make them easier to flip as these are thick fluffy pancakes. Mom uses a 1/4 or a 1/3 cup measure to make the pancake.  Makes about 10 medium sized pancakes. They freeze well - no need to buy those expensive boxed frozen pancakes.

Warning - Eating Too Many May Induce Flying Frisbee Coma


  1. Mom is going to be in charge of some breakfasts for the grands over the next few weeks. We hope they come here for breakfast so we can have fun catching those frisbees too - Mom says they sound wonderful but she needs to find some of that flour and Kefir first.

  2. White Lily has a search finder on their site and thy don't sell any close to you. However, I order mine online (and Amazon carries as well)

  3. Mouth-watering. Just saw that photo as we're heading out for the early morning walk. I know what I'll be thinking about the whole way.

  4. We suspect your mom could get a job as a food photographer!

  5. Those look super extra yummy! Especially on a cold day!

  6. yeah, we get that!! That's how we feel about waffles....and pancakes and scones, muffins, bacon. Do you have any left?

    1. I try and make everything from scratch but if you ever see the scone mix from Sticky Finger Bakeries (from Spokane and often found in World Market and Fresn Market stores) they are as good as homemade and SO easy to make.

  7. your mom shows us the best looking foods!

  8. oh I hope one of that frisbees flies directly in my mouth... or two...

  9. A canine food coma? Sam and Elsa want in on that action! 🥞🥓

  10. Abby, I don't know how you and your Mom keep your svelt figures eating all that food! But it looks delicious.

    1. Mom eats from a small salad plate - it makes the food look like MORE so she eats less. At meals with Dad she'll serve the food family style from a large plate or platter, then she just takes a small portion for her small plate. It works.

      Tacos or Ice cream, all bets are off though.
