Yesterday I posted the classic Seaseme Street segment with the little girl making her way to the grocery store while trying to remember her mother’s grocery list. Well, yesterday morning, James was that little girl. We decided on Sunday pancakes but didn’t have the milk, butter or eggs to make it. So off he went to the market to gather the things we needed most.
Nothing beats homemade pancakes. James has made this recipe for years and got it out of The New McCall’s Cookbook. He won ours on ebay.
What you’ll need:1 cup sifted four 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 2 tbsp. of sugar 1 egg 1 cup of milk butter 1 tsp. vanilla paste 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
- Sift flour with baking powder, salt and sugar.
- Beat egg and milk together in separate bowl.
- Add egg and milk to flour mixture and beat until well combined. It will be lumpy.
- Add more flour if you like your pancakes thicker.
- Add vanilla and cinnamon (optional).
- Let batter sit for about 10 minutes.
- Heat griddle (wedding gift) or heavy skillet.
- Melt butter on surface of griddle.
- Pour/ladle out batter so that cakes are about 4 inches wide.
- Watch as bubbles form on uncooked side of pancakes. When bubbles start to pop it’s time to flip the cakes. (As I kid I would get really impatient waiting for the bubbles to pop so I would just take a fork and pop them myself…needless to say my pancakes were always a little underdone).
- Plate and serve with your favorite maple syrup, bacon and butter!
