Spoonful of Food

pancakes anyone?!

June 23, 2017

 

When you think of breakfast…what is the #1 food you think of?! Well, in our house it is definitely…sweet, fluffy, warm pancakes!!! Doesn’t matter if they’re plain…loaded with chocolate chips…or saturated with blueberries….we’ll clean our plates!

For Father’s Day, my husband requested a family breakfast complete with pancakes. How could I refuse? My daughter wanted to be my assistant to help me measure the ingredients and, obviously, add the chocolate chips when the cakes were heating on the griddle {she wanted them ‘extra chocolatey’}.

This recipe is not only easy to follow…but it yields some seriously delicious cakes and uses ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry. Make these yummy cakes for your next family breakfast (or to satisfy an individual craving) and let us know what you think!

Happy Cooking!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup of milk
  • 3 Tablespoons of melted butter
  • warm maple syrup (for topping, duh!)

(chocolate chips and/or blueberries are optional)

 

Instructions:

  • Melt 3 Tablespoons of butter in the microwave (about 30 seconds; we usually heat the butter in 15 second increments so that it doesn’t explode in the microwave
  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • In a separate medium bowl, mix together milk, egg and butter
  • Create a well in the dry ingredients (bowl) and pour the butter and milk mixture into the well.
  • Use a wire whisk to stir the ingredients together. Mix until just combined (batter will be thick and lumpy)
  • Heat griddle (spread butter on griddle/spray with coconut spray)
  • Scoop batter into 1/4 cup for each pancake. Pour batter onto griddle and cook each side for 3-6 minutes (or until lightly brown) before flipping!
  • (*tip, when adding toppings, make sure to put them into/on the pancake while they are still wet and uncooked).

Recipe yield’s about 10-12 cakes
