Making Friends on a Saturday Morning. Quick and Easy Pancakes

When our little guy woke up on Saturday we asked the questions we always ask.

Me: “Did you have a good sleep?”
Him: “Yes”
Me: “What did you dream about?”
Him: “Pancakes”
Me: “What?”
Him: “Pancakes”

Challenge accepted. Here’s the recipe I used. It was quick, easy, didn’t make too many and clearly idiot proof as I pulled it off.

In one container, whisk:
    A couple tablespoons of sugar.
    1.5 cups of milk.
    A couple teaspoons of lemon juice (I used Reallemon…)
Then mix in:
    1 egg (I was told room temperature. No idea what difference that makes).
    About a tablespoon of melted butter.

In a second container, whisk together:
    1.5 cups of flour (I used white as I didn’t have any of the ‘healthy’ stuff.
    1 teaspoon baking soda.
    Around 2 teaspoons baking powder.
    A pinch of salt.

Pour the wet stuff into the dry stuff and mix with a fork. It’s ok for it to be a bit chunky.

Now spoon its out onto a pre-heated (i keep it on medium to medium-low to avoid burning) greased heavy frying pan and cook. Flip them when you see bubbles bursting on the pancake’s upper surface.

By the way, our son prefers his with either almond butter or guava jelly.
