So, my kids are spoiled. Rotten. At least when it comes to their pancakes. A sweet neighbor shared a pancake recipe with me early in my marriage, and we've used it and loved it so much over the years, that now it causes problems. My kids have become all finicky and picky when eating at friends' houses for breakfast on occasion, or at Grandpa and Grandma's (shhh...don't tell!)
Because I shared it with another friend, her kids now have the same problem, and they've even dubbed them "Shelli Pancakes". (Thanks, Lara!) While I can't take credit for the recipe itself, I'd love to share it with you. I'm thinking your family just might love it like ours does, and maybe your kids will become spoiled-rotten-pancake-eaters too!
2 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. sugar
1 c. flour (freshly-ground "hard white wheat" is delicious, and they can't even tell it's whole wheat!)
Whip buttermilk and eggs together. Mix dry ingredients, then add them to the buttermilk and eggs. Mixture will be thin. Pour onto hot griddle. When bubbles form, flip. Serve with syrup, jam, or toppings of your choice.
HOMEMADE MAPLE SYRUP
3 c. water
5 c. sugar
1 T. maple flavoring
Bring water to a boil, then add sugar and turn off heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved, then add maple flavoring. Syrup will be runny, but very yummy! Serve hot.
I'd love to hear if any of you have success with these recipes! Enjoy! By the way, what are your kids in love with for breakfast?
