Pancakes


This is basically a very simple pancake recipe. I love pancakes. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In fact, I had them for dinner last night! My son requested pancakes so how could I resist. A great excuse for an easy dinner. I only wonder how many calories they have. Oh well, they were delicious. When my husband saw me taking pictures of the pancakes he said "You're going to put them on your blog?" I told him sure, why not? I feel that food blogs are mainly about cooking all different types of food. I know I have gone on other blogs looking at times for the simplest of recipes. And I've searched for pancake recipes too. My blog has many more baking recipes than cooking but that's because that is what I enjoy the most. I love baking cakes and cookies probably because that is what I enjoy eating the most!!

To be honest, I cannot remember where I found this recipe since I had it written on an index card. More than likely it came from Allrecipes. Enjoy and try to keep dry...it is STILL raining here!!!

1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
2 tbs melted butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine all dry ingredients. Preheat electric skillet to 380 degrees F. Lightly oil skillet. Add milk, melted butter and vanilla to eggs. Add to dry ingredients. Stir just enough to dampen (not too much). Adjust milk (if needed) so that it is thin enough to pour.

I pour approximately 2 or 3 tablespoons per pancake. This recipe will make approximately 9 medium size pancakes.

We eat pancakes a couple times a month here, usually on a lazy Sunday. We never grow tired of them. Always a hit!

I was thinking of doing breakfast for dinner last night, too. Your son and my one twin are of the same mind. He'll ask for pancakes as often as he can.

I so miss pancakes. I used to make them a lot. Since I'm pre-diabetic now, I limit my carbs. So pancakes are just off-limits. Sob.
