Every so often I have a breakfast-for-dinner craving. Tonight it was pancakes. I decided to try my hand at making my own. The results were very yummy!
My husband wanted a traditional pancake, but I had to jazz mine up a little. So how does one do this without making two different batches of batter? I am so glad you asked! You sprinkle whatever additional goodness you want on the cake as it is cooking! Problem fixed and pancake making commences.
Here’s what you need:
1 cup of flour
3/4 to 1 cup of milk ( I used closer to a cup to get the consistency that I wanted)
2 tbsp of oil
1 tbsp of sugar + more for sprinkling
3 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, fresh fruit, chocolate chips…)
Here’s what you do:
Whisk the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla together in a small bowl. In a separate bowl measure the dry ingredients. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet. Mix together, but don’t over mix. You may have lumps. I added milk until I got the desired consistency. Cook on a greased griddle over medium heat. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Add extra goodies while the first side is cooking. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spice and a little sugar (or whatever you wish to add) over the wet side just before you flip. It is a nice surprise for your taste buds! This makes roughly 8 medium pancakes.
Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
