Hearty Pancakes....(CL)

I made these on Sunday morning. Chelsea( our niece) was here for the weekend. Unfortunatly, she didnt enjoy these pancakes, but I did. I was surprised though beause she drank a glass of vanilla soymilk and she did enjoy that. This was a simple recipe and I had all the ingredients on hand.

Hearty Pancakes

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup uncooked farina (such as Cream of Wheat)
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup applesauce
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Cooking spray
1/2 cup golden raisins, divided
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, divided
1/4 cup maple syrup

Lightly spoon the flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, farina, and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine milk, applesauce, and egg in a medium bowl, stirring until well blended. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until well combined. Let batter stand 5 minutes.
Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto pan; sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons raisins and 2 teaspoons walnuts. Cook 1 minute or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over, and cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Repeat procedure with remaining batter, raisins, and walnuts. Serve with syrup.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 pancakes and 2 teaspoons maple syrup)

I can't blame Chelsea - I don't want to find raisins in my pancakes either.

The farina intrigues me. I love cream of wheat but I can't imagine the texture of pancakes made with dry farina.
