Happy Pancake Day (for real this time) or, Happy Shrove Tuesday, or Happy Mardi Gras! My calendar may have fooled me last month, but not this time. And since i am working the late shift today i can not cook pancakes for dinner, so i decided to have them for breakfast. I got this recipe from All Recipes. I like their website because you can change the number of servings and it gives you new numbers...i was never a math student, i can easily double a recipe, but halving it sometimes is more difficult. The original recipe serves eight, i used half of that since it is only me and i do not want a repeat of last month's 4 day pancakes; here is the full recipe.
1+1/2 cup flour.
3+1/2 tsp baking powder.
1 tsp salt.
3 Tbsp sugar.
1+1/4 cup milk.
3 Tbsp melted butter.
In large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. In another, whisk together wet. Add wet to dry and mix well. On hot skillet, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls, fry until bubbly and edges firm up. Flip and cook other side. Serve with syrup.
I got three medium sized, but thick, pancakes. I also poked a few frozen blueberries into them. Not so fancy this time, i just used store bought syrup. I am not crazy about real maple syrup (and i am supposed to be Canadian), and i didn't have time or berries to whip up another batch of berry syrup.
The only thing i did not halve in the recipe was the egg...it told me to, but really? Not the easiest thing to do, and what would you do with the other half? These pancakes turned out great, and i think the recipe would go into the waffle iron just as well. Now that Mardi Gras is here, it is a downhill slide to Easter, and Spring!! The sun is finally shining today, to. All the rain of the weekend took away the snow, so it can't be long now!!
