I have so much on my heart lately that I scarcely know where to begin, so maybe I'll just post a recipe.
I think I will.
Fluffy pancakes it is. ;)
1 1/4 Cup flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 Cup milk
3 Tablespoons oil (I use olive or sunflower)
Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet ingredients in another, then combine. Lightly butter a non-stick pan, pour 1/3 cup of batter into pan, and cook on medium high heat until bubbly, flip and cook for another 45 - 60 seconds. This recipe makes about 10 to 12 medium pancakes and is easily doubled.
For my vegan sister, I have not tried it, but I think that the milk can easily substituted with oat, almond, soy or rice milk, and the egg with apple sauce. I would add a little bit of cinnamon if I did it this way... and probably will try it soon, actually! ;)
So, no mixes necessary for nice, fluffy pancakes!
If you (like me) live in a place where you can not buy maple syrup, berry syrup is SO GOOD with these.
I usually buy a bag of mixed, frozen berries, but I have also done this with strawberries or blueberries.
1 cup of fresh or frozen berries to every 2 T of sugar (or 1 T honey).
In a small saucepan, place the berries and sugar and simmer on low heat for 3 - 5 minutes. Serve warm with pancakes and whipped cream. Makes for a lovely dessert!
