“I don’t have to tell you I love you. I fed you pancakes.” – Kathleen Flinn
One of my most favorite things to eat! Breakfast for dinner!
I have a GREAT recipe for you guys. I pulled it from a blogger on Pinterest, Rachel Schultz, and have been using it since forever. It’s important that you have a solid pancake recipe in your kitchen arsenal. I love this one because it’s so simple that I practically have it memorized. You can find the recipe here (and down below too):
Only 8 ingredients! And this recipe calls for regular milk so don’t freak out about the Buttermilk in my picture!
Sift, sift, sift.
I’m a salt rebel without a cause. I use more than 1/2 teaspoon because I like my blood pressure high.
Once you sift the dry, add the wet and mix until combined. This is where I change the recipe a bit. Instead of using 1 1/4 cups of milk, I use 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk. It’s gives more fluff to the pancake. People don’t typically have buttermilk on hand so sticking with regular milk is fine too. (you can also make your own buttermilk using vinegar but that’s for another time!)
Anyway, I’ve tried both ways and both are great.
I use an ice cream scoop to avoid messy batter everywhere. I have enough to clean up around here. Speaking of kids – Belle and ‘Percy the Pig’ are joining us.
Percy gets a Belgian waffle AND cereal!?
Once you start seeing bubbles, time to flip.
I served this with bacon and cheesy scrambled eggs. Shhhh. Don’t tell Percy about the bacon.
Tip: To avoid grease splatter from fried bacon, instead bake the bacon on foil lined cookie sheets at 400° F. for 12-14 minutes.
Works like a charm… perfect every time!
Best topped with real maple syrup.
I hope you enjoy these perfect pancakes as much as my family does. 🙂
