She's Here! (New Baby Pancakes)

Multigrain Medallion Pancakes
From Runner's World, October 2012 *do not be fooled - I have not taken up running.  It should tell you something that the one piece of information that I gleaned from a running magazine is a pancake recipe.*
Makes 16 four-inch pancakes

1 c. white flour
1/3 c. each: cornmeal, whole wheat flour, and old-fashioned rolled oats
4 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. milk or water
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, plus extra for brushing the griddle
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat a large skillet or griddle over low heat.  Mix flour, whole grains, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl.  Microwave buttermilk and milk for 30 seconds in a 2-cup measuring cup.  Whisk in eggs, oil, and vanilla.  Pour wet ingredients into dry; whisk until just mixed.  Return batter to measuring cup.  Increase heat to medium and brush skillet with oil.  When oil starts to spider, pour batter 1/4 cup at a time.  When pancake bottoms are golden brown and tops start to bubble, after about 2-3 minutes, flip pancakes; cook until golden brown on other side.  Repeat, brushing skillet or griddle with oil.  Serve hot.
Newest family member - welcome, sweet girl!
You may remember how passionate I am about pancakes - so much so that I announced being pregnant with Baby #2 at the end of a post about my favorite pancake recipe.  So, it only seems appropriate to share about the arrival of Baby #2 with another pancake recipe - coming full circle, if you will.  Just to get this out there - these are great pancakes.  Hearty, a little "meaty" with the whole grains, and nicely filling.  We ate them for dinner the night before Baby was born, so maybe - just maybe - this is what triggered her arrival!  She was born nine days past her due date - which started to wear on me a bit (ok, a lot) - but she knew when she needed to come and we're just so thankful that she's healthy and wonderful!
