Ever since my husband and I moved in together, we have made an effort to eat all of our meals at the table instead of in front of the TV. This became especially important when we started a family. One of my all-time favorite traditions is our weekend pancake breakfasts. I wake up and make pancakes each Saturday and Sunday morning while my husband watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with the kiddos. It’s a crazy dance party and it is absolutely fantastic.
This recipe is SO simple and you probably have everything already in your pantry. What are some of your favorite family traditions?
* 1 cup of milk
* 1 egg
* 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
* 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable oil
* 3/8 cup of sugar
* 1 cup of flour
* 3/4 Tablespoon of baking powder
Pre-heat your non-stick griddle or pan to 375 degrees. Whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla, vegetable oil and sugar in a bowl or large measuring cup. I like to use the measuring cup so that I can pour the batter easily on the griddle. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and the baking powder together with a fork and then add to the milk and egg mixture. Gently whisk to combine. Do not over-mix – you still want to see a few lumps in the batter. Let batter sit for a couple minutes. Grease your pan with a little butter or non-stick spray. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and flip when you start to see bubbles form. Let cook about an additional minute. Enjoy!
