Pancakes – Pure and Simple!

When the weather starts cooling down and you wake up to a brisk morning, it seems to demand that the scent of pancakes should be permeating your home. A side of bacon and eggs wouldn’t go amiss, either. Colder weather demands a heartier breakfast. It is also time to start thinking about holiday breakfasts and company being in the house. I like my pancakes simple: maple syrup and butter.

Easy Pancakes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 (perhaps a bit more) cup whole milk
1 large egg
4 tablespoons melted butter

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add the rest of the listed ingredients and mix until smooth. If the batter is too thick, thin it with a little milk.

Heat the frying pan, add a bit of butter or favorite oil, and pour in 1/4 cups of batter for each pancake. When the surface bubbles, it is time to turn it over. Cook to desired golden brown and serve immediately.

My husband likes to add 1/4 cup of cooked rice to the batter.

Make the batter a bit thinner and then you can roll the pancakes up around stewed apples, chunky jam, cinnamon,brown sugar, and butter.

Adding bacon crumbles to the pancake and serving with warm maple syrup is good, too.P1000267
