Easiest Pancakes From Scratch

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

 When I was pregnant with my second baby, I remember a night craved pancakes so bad! I looked in my kitchen cabinets for some box pancake mixed and to my disappointment, I found none, we had run out. I then turned to every housewife's holy grail, Pinterest, for some answers. I searched for a pancakes "from scratch" recipe. As usual, every pin began with " the ultimate" or " the best" bla bla bla. I trusted the best looking recipe photo and began to gather my ingredients. I made my batter and then began to cook. I hardly could wait for the first pancake to come out! 

 Pregnant me was so anxious and excited! When it was ready, I placed it on a napkin, still hot, fresh off the pan, and I took a huge bite out of it. Boy was it nasty! It didn't taste like anything, and it became rock hard in minutes! It was the worst recipe ever, I was so disappointed. I can't even begin to tell you how upset this made me. Remember, I was pregnant, hungry and sensitive. Thus, never being able to trust a pinterest recipe ever again. 

 That was until, almost 3 years later, about two months ago, when I wanted to make pancakes for breakfast and found none in my kitchen cabinets, again! I turned to pinterest once more, and put all my faith in a recipe from a guy named Pete. I'm just kidding, the pancake style mix is called Pete's Scratch Pancakes. I made it and not only did my toddlers love it, but I did too! Honestly, the best pancakes from scratch ever! Today's recipe will be short and sweet and not to mention easy,...and I really mean easy! These will be high, but light and fluffy. 

I N G R E D I E N T S:
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tbs sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbs baking powder
- 2 eggs (beat separately before adding them to the mix.)
- 1/4 cup butter (melted)
- 1 3/4 cups milk

D I R E C T I O N S:
1. Mix the dry ingredients first.
2. Combine the eggs and melted butter to the milk and slowly stir into the flour mixture.
3. Let sit at least 10 minutes while heating the pan.
4. Butter the pan a bit and pour your mix, one portion at a time.
5. When you see bubbles begin to appear, flip the pancake with a spatula.
6. After about 2 min, if you're unsure, you can poke the center of the pancake with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, the pancake is done.
7. Serve with toppings of your choice.

Note: The mix will make about 9, 6-inch pancakes. This depends obviously on the amount you pour into the pan for each one. 

I hope you try this recipe out and enjoy having pancakes from scratch, it really is as simple and easy as it sounds. It tastes delicious! Be sure to hashtag #beyoutifulart if you do try it out. And if you like my recipe segments please leave a comment below, I'd love to hear from you!
