Trying a new pancake recipe

“This was a flop.”

I decided to wake up early and look for a new pancake recipe online. I managed to find one that looked interesting, and was done in a way that I never tried before. However, it wasn’t time effective. And the reason that’s important is because it was a school morning for my daughter. The batter was too thick. I know I like a fluffy pancake, but this batter was hard to work with. It’s a good thing my daughter didn’t help out this time, because when it would come to the stirring she wouldn’t have wanted to do it. It wasn’t the easiest to drop amounts into the pan either.

Of course in the directions, they mentioned adding more milk if needed. It seemed like that’s all I was doing.

I’ve tried many different pancake recipes. This one I have to be honest is the worst. It has far too much baking powder in it. And the recipe itself does not call for enough milk.

They tasted fine. Believe me, I’m not super picky. I microwave my coffee for Pete’s sake. However, I wanted a recipe that would be time efficient, fairly easy, and tasty.

I’m going to give you the recipe I used, then I’m going to give you my tweeked version of it and I can guarantee you’ll have more success.

online recipe:

2 cups flour

1/4 cup of granulated sugar (or preferred sweetener)

4 tsp of baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups milk (plus an extra 1/4 cup if needed … Just FYI… You’ll NEED it)

1/4 cup butter, melted (slightly cooled)

2 tsp pure vanilla

1 large eggs

Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl. Medium bowl mix all wet ingredients. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. That’s where you will pour your wet ingredients into. When mixing, fold wet and dry ingredients. Preheated oiled pan is now ready to heat up some batter.

Here is my version:

2 cups flour

1/4 organic cane sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 cups milk

1/4 cup butter, melted slightly cooled

2 tsp pure vanilla

1 large egg

Use the same directions as above for mixing and cooking.

Although I haven’t tried my version, I think it would give you more ease than the online one I found. I hope so at least. Maybe another morning I’ll give this a go to test my changes out.

The things that I like most about me would have to be: I'm creative, I'm artistic, I'm passionate about family and friends, I believe in personal development, and I believe that food is a way to fellowship and connect with one another as well as it can be a way of healing. I'm not talking about emotional eating or depending too much on food to fill voids. However, let's be real, food can certainly offer a sense of comfort. I'm a mother to a lovely daughter, and some of the things that we enjoy doing together have to do with preparing and eating food. Whether it's learning new recipes and my daughter helping me make them, or jazzing up a pancake meal with sprinkles and whipped cream, there's always a sense of accomplishment and fun that comes with it. Not to mention we always try to remember to be grateful for the bounty that is before us.
