The art of pancake making

Do you remember waking up on Saturday mornings? The smell of pancakes, syrup, bacon, and eggs invading your nose. That is why I love Saturday mornings.

As most of you know, if not every single one of you, pancakes are not hard to master. Actually, it's VERY simple to make a great tasting pancake. You have to have patience, though. Because turning the pancake prematurely can be absolutely disasterous!

First all you need is a recipe, or even a box of pancake mix. A box is easy, but now making them from scratch can be easier, and possibly even cheaper.

1 cup flour (I sift mine)
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tbsp oil (if you want added fat)
1 tsp vanilla

1. Combine all of the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another.
2. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix with a whisk until all the ingredients are mixed well.

Well that was easy enough!

When it comes to cooking those lovely pancakes there is one cardinal rule. Let the bubbles rise. I mean it. No bubbles, no flippy.


And enjoy ;)

  1. Scot's a lucky man - not too many women these days can cook a mean pancake. Good for you. And little Marlee is absolutely adorable and I love those baby head bands. 5 months and counting, great!

    Hi! Forgive me but I'm lagging behind from the Friday blog hop - but I made it - and I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll stop by blog and follow me too. I sure would appreciate it. Thanks!
