Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cream Cheese Butter

Ingredients

1/2 cup bulgur (cracked wheat)
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 egg whites
2 cups soy milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Cream Cheese Butter (recipe follows)

Instructions

Soak the bulgur in 1 cup water for 45 to 60 minutes, then drain. (The larger the grains, the longer it will take; this can be done the night before, but refrigerate after draining.)

Combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, allspice, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. In a small bowl, beat together the egg whites, soy milk, oil, and vanilla. Fold the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, then fold in the carrot, nuts, and bulgur.

Cook on a lightly greased griddle and serve with Cream Cheese Butter.
