When All Else Fails: Pancakes


Last night’s dinner was to be Chicken Tetrazinni. As you can see this is NOT Chicken Tetrazinni. I had all the ingredients for Chicken Tetrazinni. In fact we had gone to the store to buy the whole milk, cream, and Parmesan cheese to make the Chicken Tetrazinni. But, I did not want it. Yes, I did not want it. I have been craving pancakes since last Friday. I had a ton of stuff to do all day and I wanted warm and comforting food, which Chicken Tetrazinni. I wanted butter, syrup, and warm pancakes.

We all have these nights when our meal plans go awry. It’s okay. I now have frozen chicken and the ingredients to make the dish another day.

Verdict:

This satisfied my craving. Lots of warm real maple syrup and butter were just what I wanted.

When All Else Fails: Pancakes

Simple Pancakes for a busy weeknight dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, cooled slightly

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well blended and there are NO lumps. Make a well in the center. Add buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter – slightly cooled. Stir until just mixed together.
  2. On a griddle melt butter over medium – medium low heat. Make pancakes with 1/4 to 1/3 cup pancake batter. Once bubbles form on one side carefully flip to the second side until golden brown.
  3. Remove pancakes to a plate in oven to keep warm until all pancakes are made. Serve with warmed syrup and butter as desired.

      1. It helps, it lets my husband and I relax with our coffee and breaks up the mundane cereal or toast we quickly make throughout the week.
