Summer Pancakes

July 17, 2011

Ah HA!  I had a score today with the pancakes!

After my last foray into the Pancake World, I didn’t think I’d venture there again soon.  But today’s 4 1/2 year old guest needed them for his breakfast, so I tried it again.  I googled and giggled, (remembering my more discriminating 11 year old guest’s opinion of my pancakes), and when all was said and done, I forgot about Paula Deen and went back to the pancakes I always gave our own little girls (who are quite grown up now but they were little once):  1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 2 T butter, 1 egg, 2 T sugar, 1 T vanilla, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda & a couple of pinches of salt.  BUT I made one change:  I added about 1/4 or so cup of sparkling grape juice (I had a bit left over from our anniversary guests the other day) because one of the recipes that I’d googled had given that as a tip for light, fluffy pancakes.  AND IT DID THE TRICK!  I added some blueberries and made a special butter:  I added honey and almond extract along with a few pinches of mace (which was to die for, if I do say so myself) and served them with warm blueberry syrup.  Our little guy’s assessment of my pancakes today?  “Tastes like a lollipop,” which was a 100% endorsement, in case you need a translation.  SCORE!
