After our Saturday night indoor campout, it seemed only natural to follow up with a pancake breakfast picnic on Sunday.
We have a system here in our house – Billy makes the pancake batter, and I am the cook. It’s challenging, because the three of us all like our pancakes served differently. Wyatt likes tiny pancakes, like half-dollar or smaller even. I like my pancakes a gentle golden brown, and Billy likes his dark brown, almost bordering on overdone. So, I have my work cut out for me when I cook! Over time Billy has come up with the perfect recipe for our family as well, after much experimentation, and honestly, they are seriously perfect, at least in my opinion. They smell so good while they are cooking even! If you are interested in trying them, I’ve added his recipe! It’s not fancy but it’s good. And keep in mind, we are just home cooks here. Lol.
Billy's Sunday Morning Pancakes
- 1.5 cups all purpose flour
- 3.5 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 TB maple syrup (yes right in the batter)
- 2 TB Vanilla extract
- 1 TB Almond extract
- 1.25 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 TB melted butter
Directions: Melt the butter. Sift together the dry ingredients. Form a well in the sifted dry ingredients and pour all liquid into well. Add egg. Whisk together until combined. Drop onto hot griddle or pan – I use a 1/2 c. measuring cup but you do you. When they start bubbling you know it’s time to flip, or make according to your tastes. Like I said Billy likes his much darker brown than I do so I don’t flip his as quickly.
Our little guy certainly enjoys them! He doesn’t even bother with syrup or a fork! Lol.
How do you like your pancakes? Any secrets you have for making them?
