Maple Griddle Cakes

These little guys would go perfectly with one of our first ever Taste Tested recipes: Blueberry Basil Sauce!


  • 1 cup Red Fife Flour
  • 1/4 cup Ontario Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup Ontario buttermilk
  • 1 large Ontario egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Mix the wet ingredients together in a bowl with a wooden spoon.
  2. Sift dry ingredients into the wet and stir lightly. Do not over mix. You want clumps! That`s how they stay tender.
  3. Spoon onto a pre-heated griddle that has been generously buttered or greased.
  4. Cook on a gentle medium heat – too hot orthe sugar in them burns.
  5. Flip only once per cake and serve immediately with a pad of fresh butter and more maple syrup!
