This week, we're combining a recipe and our appliance know-how into one recipe. We're using the turbo blender, you know VITAMIX, BlendTec, and Waring X-Treme to make pancakes. And not ordinary pancakes. Because these aren't ordinary blenders. Turbo blenders have 3 and 4 horsepower motors. This spins the blades so fast that the friction created can heat liquids up to 180 degrees and higher. And the spin so fast they can grind wheat berries and other dry grains into flour in just seconds. In fact, we are so taken with these machines that we wrote a book that uses them called THE TURBO BLENDER DESSERT REVOLUTION. And it goes on sale next week, October 26th. And it truly is revolutionary. You can our milk, sugar, eggs, chocolate, flour, vanilla, and salt in a turbo blender and 6 minutes later pour out warm chocolate pudding. Or you do as we do in this recipe right out of our book. We put steel cut oats and wheat berries into the turbo blender and grind them into flour. Then we add buttermilk, eggs, and oil - and voila, whole grain pancake batter. You can do the same thing with brownies, cakes, scones, and muffins. But not just any blender will work. Listen in and find out how to use your turbo blender to it's full potential or learn why you need to go out and buy one of these amazing appliances.
