Easy peasy pancake mix

Do you love pancakes? Then I have a great recipe for you! In fact, I will never buy pancake mix again. This homemade mix is cheap, quick and tasty.  It can be whipped up in five minutes and it makes Bisquick taste like powdered cardboard.

Easy Peasy Pancakes

1 1/2 Cups Flour

3 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1 teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon White Sugar (I substitute Splenda)

1 1/4 Cups Milk

1 Egg

3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted

1 Tablespoon Vanilla

In a large bowl, sift together all dry ingrediants. Make a well in the center and pour in the remaining ingrediants. Mix well. Heat a lightly oiled grilled over medium heat. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

I like to get crazy with my pancake toppings using a cheap pancake syrup as a base. Some of my favorite flavors to add to the syrup are peanut butter, frozen blueberries or even fresh strawberries. I just bring the syrup to boil in a saucepan and then add fruit or peanut butter to taste. Sometimes I’ll just use a bunch of whipped cream with fresh fruit.

Do yourself a favor and whip up a batch of these pancakes this weekend. By the way, if you’re a singleton like me and think you can never eat a batch of pancakes by yourself, this recipe freezes really well. Just¬† place them on a cookie sheet in the freezer until they are solid. Then toss them in a freezer safe container until you’re ready for them. Zap ’em in the microwave and you’re ready to go!
