    Ingredients
    Makes: 18 pancakes

    • 160g porridge oats
    • 475ml buttermilk
    • 60g plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 55g butter, softened
    • 50g raisins, sultanas or currants

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:12hr resting  ›  Ready in:12hr30min 

    1. Mix together oats and buttermilk in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    2. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarb, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Cover and let sit at room temperature overnight so that it's ready and waiting in the morning.
    3. The next morning: Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in oat mixture, followed by the eggs, butter and raisins. Stir until just moistened. Allow batter to rest 10 to 20 minutes before cooking. If batter is too thick, add buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until batter reaches the desired consistency.
    4. Heat a lightly oiled, large frying pan over medium heat. Pour 60ml batter onto the hot griddle for each cake. Cook pancakes until bubbles appear on top, flip and cook until lightly browned on bottom.

    This is the best pancake recipe I have ever tried! I think I have tried most of them on the internet in search of my mom and grandmother's recipes to no avail. My fiancé and I agreed that, at best, the other's were good, but nothing special. The oatmeal really adds something special to the recipe. We didn't have raisins so I omitted them and topped them with apples sautéed in a pat of butter and just a bit of cinnamon (which I have done with other pancakes). I halved the recipe and the two of us ate them all! YUM! Don't wait until Christmas to try these easy delicious pancakes! Will make again and again...they are definitely worth the wait! Thanks so much for sharing! (:  -  02 Sep 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    My family loves oatmeal pancakes and this is a great recipe. I use whole wheat flour and oil with good results. These are more fragile than ordinary pancakes so oil your pan well and be careful when handling.  -  30 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was delicious! I only let the oatmeal sit an hour, had no baking powder so I doubled the baking soda, and it was still yummy! I'm sure it's even better following the recipe.  -  27 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
