I'm posting this for my European friends that read the blog.
You all know how much we love to eat Pancakes for Breakfast.
I just added an update on 3/6 2013, a recipe for Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.. Brilliant!
I know that a Pancake Mix isn't always available for you to buy, so now you can make the batter to create them.
I've also posted a Basic Dry Mixture that you can prepare and keep in a container until you're ready to make Pancakes. ( we can all do this)
1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour ( not cake flour, not whole wheat flour, just basic white flour)
2 TBS Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 C Milk
2 Eggs, beaten
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Vegetable Oil or Butter for frying
Maple Syrup and Butter for serving.
In a bowl mix:
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually add the Milk
Add the Eggs and Vanilla and whisk until mixed ( it's ok if it has lumps)
Heat a skillet with Oil or Butter and pour in 1/4 C of the batter.
When the top begins to bubble, flip it over and fry it until golden brown.
Repeat with all of the batter.
Place the cooked Pancakes on a plate and cover with a tea towel to keep them warm.
We butter them, stack them on top of each other and pour Maple Syrup over them.
Here's the recipe for a dry mix that you can keep in a container until you're ready to make the Pancakes.
4 C Flour
3 TBS Baking Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2 TBS Sugar
When you're ready to make Pancakes:
Beat 1 Egg in a bowl
Add 1 Cup of the Dry Mixture
Add 1 C Milk
Add 1 TBS melted Butter
Mix together, remember that lumps are ok!
Cook according to the directions above.
Here's a great idea for a Pancake!
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes:
Prepare the basic batter as listed above.
Create a filling and a Glaze.
1 C Butter, melted
1 1/2 C Brown Sugar
2 TBS Cinnamon
Mix the 3 ingredients together.
Place in a piping bag and snip the end or use a Ziploc bag and snip the corner. ( not too big)
1/2 C Butter
4 oz. (1/2 C) Cream Cheese
1 1/2 C Powdered Sugar ( Confectioner's Sugar)
1 tsp Vanilla
In a glass bowl, microwave the butter and the Cream Cheese together.
Whisk in the Sugar and Vanilla.
Add a little Milk , if necessary to create a Glaze consistency.
Here's the good part:
Heat the griddle or pan with some butter.
Pour on the desired amount of batter to make the pancake.
Using the piping bag, start at the center of the batter and swirl the Filling in a circle until you reach the outer edge.
When the pancake begins to bubble on the surface, Flip It!
When you flip it, the Cinnamon Swirl will melt and create the crater effect that the Glaze will fill.
Place the pancake on a plate, Cinnamon side up and fill with the Glaze.
Stack and repeat with the desired amount of pancakes per person.
At this time, we would butter them too......
Oh My.... what a brilliant idea!
Peace in the Kitchen!
