Pancake adventure!!!!

on February 26, 2011

so it is always nice to wake up and make a yummy breakfast for your family. I have to say though it rarely happens in our house cause mom is usually making bowls of cereal or serving muffins half asleep.  Sometimes though husband feel the urge to wake u and make breakfast. Probably because his 1st order of business in the morning s it a shower. Today was one of those days.  he woke up and  cleaned the kitchen then proceeded to  work on breaky. not realizing we didnt have instantpancake batter he promised our youngest chocolate chip banana pancakes.  Then enlisted my help in making hoem made pancake batter. which niether of us had ever made before. there is a 1st time for everything.  so with flour in hand we tried a random recipe we found.  here is our version of home made pancakes for 4 people.

3 cups of ap flour

1 egg

4 tsp bakign powder

1 tsp salt

1tbs sugar

4 tbs shortening.

2.5 cups of milk

2 tbs buttermilk powder

mix the dry stuff together.  twice… i dont knwo why but the recipe said to do it twice.  next add the wet stuff.  now we semi melted our shortening cause we thought it would work better and ours was comign out of the fridge.also  slowly add the milk you might need more or less to make it the right consistency.

Dont over mix your pancakes will end up tough and crumbly.  pour on to a heated skillet at this point you can add things like banana slices or chocolate chips or berries. When it starts to bubble flip it.cook for another few minutes.

I know what you are saying ” but the just add water mix is so much easier”  and too you i say rubbish. I was a “just add water” girl but I am thinking I wont be buying the mix at all anymore. It was sooo easy. You can do it. Try it. I  think  my favorite part about makin these was being in the kitchen with my hubby. Wearing the cute apron he gave me for christmas.
