I made pancakes for breakfast.
As a dad, it falls on me to get my children ready for the day. Getting their bags packed and lunches made are not the real issue; however, getting them out of the house on time only happens when breakfast runs smoothly.
The other day I woke with a start when I realized that we had no milk in the house. Normally this is not such a problem, we have soy milk, and that is good enough for breakfast. Unfortunately, my eldest, Oryan, does not enjoy milk of the soy. I did not really have the time to run to the store to get milk so, I improvised and made pancakes. Starting the day of with pancakes is the best. Bonus, your house smells amazing when your done.
The beautiful thing about breakfast pancakes is that it’s quick, easy, and has dad coming out as a hero.
The pancake recipe that I base mine off of can be found here
1.5 cups of flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
1.25 cups milk or soy milk
(cut up chocolate)
To make the pancakes faster, I throw in all of the dry ingredients together and mix. Then I make a well in the dry ingredients and place all of the wet ones next. Simply put, I throw in the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. After mixing them I make a hole in the middle and push the dry ingredients to the sides of the bowl. I then pour in the milk and egg, and give a good squeeze of the maple syrup.
Then I mix it all together. Normally, I use a special pancake pan with Angry bird molds making it more fun for the kids when they eat.
Don’t forget to use non stick spray, because it makes flipping the pancakes that much easier.
Just look at how amazing they look, and they taste great too!
