There is nothing more delicious than yummy carbs for breakfast. Waffles, French Toast, Pancakes…you can’t go wrong. This morning I was in the mood for some homemade pancakes. I opened my cupboard to find that all the pancake mix was gone. Determined to satisfy my craving, I quickly turned to Google, and found the answer to my pancake prayers… Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes Recipe by My Wooden Spoon. I read over the list of ingredients and had every single one! So I embarked on my first ever attempt at homemade pancakes.
1 Extra Large Egg (her recipe called for 1 egg…this is what I had in my fridge)
1 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Milk (I used a combination of 1/2 Cup Fat Free Cow’s Milk and 1/4 Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk)
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 Tablespoon Sugar
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
Splash of Vanilla Extract
Start by mixing the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Once combined, add the wet ingredients and stir until smooth. Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat. Mist lightly with cooking spray. Using a 1/4 cup dry measuring cup, pour batter into the center of the pan. Cook for about 1 minute, until the center starts to bubble and the sides start to curl, then flip. Cook for an additional 45 seconds. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
I like to make one pancake at a time because then I can ensure that they are each cooked evenly. If you would rather cook the whole batch at once you can use a griddle instead. This recipe, using the 1/4 cup measure, yields 7 pancakes.
I enjoy my pancakes with pure maple syrup and bacon on the side. Breakfast of champions :)
