Hey everyone so today I’m doing a
buttermilk buckwheat blueberry pancake.
So stay tuned if you like pancakes. And
I’m also doing an unboxing of these Geekhom
spatulas so stay tuned for that.
So let’s start with the unboxing.
Ao I’m big into spatulas because I love
making pancakes. They’re heavy. Okay
so there’s three sizes. I love the weight of
these. They have that grip kind of a good grip
feel to it. They’re bendable but they’re firm
at the same time. So this is food grade silicone
and underneath this is a reinforced steel.
This is the steel and it goes right through
and it’s covered by this food grade silicone. BPA
free and FDA approved. Obviously it’s nonstick
cookware friendly. It’s not going to scratch your
cookware and it’s dishwasher safe which I love,
You can also clean it by hand very easily and as
you can see there’s like a tapered edge and very
very thin. So let’s get started with the pancakes.
We have buttermilk here and it’s two cups of
buttermilk. I’m gonna to put the wet ingredients
into this bowl here. Two cups of buttermilk. If
you don’t have buttermilk in the house you can use
sour cream that has been watered down with milk
to try to get the same consistency as buttermilk.
Then there’s one egg in this particular recipe.
Put the egg right in there. Just mix that around.
Now the original recipe does not call for
vanilla but I’m going to add some vanilla,
just a little squirt of vanilla. And I’ve
got some spices that I’m going to add. But
I’ll do that with the dry ingredients.
So I’ve got cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
because I want to make these very festive like
Christmassy since Christmas is around the corner.
These would be great for guests, house guests you
can really impress them with this. Three quarters
cups of all-purpose flour ,three quarters cups
of buckwheat flour, then I’m going to add one
teaspoon of cinnamon and a quarter teaspoon
each of ginger and nutmeg. And mix that up.
Then we’re going to do one teaspoon of
baking soda, half a teaspoon of salt,
three tablespoons of sugar. Give that another stir
Now if you want to add fruit like blueberries
you can add them in now or you can put them
in at the end. I’m gonna go ahead and
put them in now. And I just have like
probably a half a cup of blueberries
there. Now in goes the wet ingredients.
Just give that a stir and with
pancakes you don’t want to overbeat.
I almost forgot the butter. So three tablespoons
of butter and I’m going to fold it in. I do not
want to over mix it. I can’t believe I almost
forgot the butter. That’s the best part.
All right, so these are heat
resistant up to 600 degrees
and I’m going to just go ahead and put
it in boiling water just to show you.
Also when you first get them you
want to rinse them off anyway so
what better way to do it. Totally fine. You
know how sometimes if the handle gets left
near the hot near the heat it’ll leave a mark and
and it will actually melt. Well this is up to 600
degrees so that’s not going to happen with these.
All right now we’re going to make our
pancakes. So when you’re making pancakes
you can use butter um butter actually
makes them taste really amazing
but I’m going to use oil. However I may
just put a little bit of butter in the pan
along with the oil. So I’m just gonna go ahead
and put about a tablespoon two tablespoons.
Now with a non-stick pan like this, and it’s
brand new, you probably don’t need the oil.
I like to brown up my pancakes a little bit and
I usually take a Scott towel and just kind of
wipe down the whole pan. And save that for later.
You want to get your pan hot so put it on medium.
Get that a little bit hot first. You can test it
by putting a little bit of water and it should
spark and make the water jump around a little bit.
Now I am going to put a little bit of butter in.
So I do about a quarter cup per pancake and
also at this point you want to turn this down
a little bit so the butter doesn’t burn.
You don’t want your pancakes to burn. The
butter gets a little brown that’s okay brown
butter is good. If you’re like me and you like
pancakes that aren’t too dry I usually
flip them before they turn all bubbly.
I’m just gonna go ahead and check. Oh yeah!!
They’re starting to brown up on the bottom. yes !!
So when you flip a pancake you
want to flip the pan with it.
Same thing if you’re making
eggs, keep the pan moving.
Well I really really like this. I like the width
at the end there. The good thing about pancake
batter is you can put it in the container and you
can save it for the next day so you don’t have to
cook them all at once. You can also cook them all,
freeze them, and then pop them in the
toaster. You can make your pancakes big,
you can make them small, you can do whatever
you want. You could do one giant pancake.
So you could kind of tell if they’re done if
you push on them a little bit. They should
be kind of firm. I think that one’s nice and done.
I have to say these are really really nice. I like
the way they feel in your hand. I like the way
that they give a little bit but not too much.
Let’s enjoy these. So here’s my
buttermilk buckwheat blueberry pancakes.
I’m going to use just maple syrup.
I mean seriously delicious. I’m a real
pancake snob. To make pancakes like this
takes a little extra effort. It’s a rare find to
get really good pancakes in a breakfast place.
I’ll come back. Underneath the video is a
link and a coupon code to get your geekhom
spatulas. They’re really amazing. I love
them. Now we’re going to clean our spatulas.
A little soap and water, or you can also put them
in the dishwasher. And you can also hang them.
These get the thumbs up. I
really really like these.
These would make nice little stocking stuffers.
