I don’t know about you, but I love breakfast food. Breakfast for breakfast. Breakfast for lunch. Breakfast for dinner. Whenever.
It’s fast and easy and everyone loves it. Whether it’s omelettes, waffles, French toast or pancakes, it’s all good. And of course, there’s always bacon to go along with it.
Do you have a box of pancake mix hidden your pantry (head lowered, hand raised). Yup, that was me. It was convenient. What can I say?
That was until I made this recipe. It has only a few basic ingredients, it whips up quick and tastes a whole lot better than the box. Ok, it takes a bit longer than adding water to some bleached out, flavorless powder, but not much longer. Like, three minutes more. You have an extra three minutes, right? Sure you do.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there isn’t anything wrong with a mix, but if you are trying to reduce some of the processed food items that you consume, this is a good place to start. You’ll taste the difference.
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 3½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1½ cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot
