Cooking: Pancakes

I.Love.Pancakes. They're awesome. All kinds of awesome. But I don't make them that much because it's a lot of work for a Saturday morning. I usually use my grandfathers' recipe. He was an amazing cook and it's like a family heirloom. But it's got all kinds of stuff that I didn't have in the house... crisco and whatnot.

So, to the computer I went to google "pancake recipe" and this little one popped up. Easy enough. Followed one of the commenters thoughts and reduced the salt to 3/4 tsp and added a tsp of vanilla.

I used the flat side of this grill aparatus. It covers two burners and get's hot all over. Lots of room for pancake making. I made them tiny for faster cooking and more adorableness.


Topped with some raspberries and ready for eating!

They are delicious! The vanilla adds the perfect bit of scrumptiousness. I would definitely ditch the heirloom for these again.



I just have to add this little contraption. It's a pancake dropper. Honestly, it was a whim registry item. Thank You Thank You Thank You to Miss SamEd for the gift. It's the first time I've use it and it is awesome. Perfect tiny little pancakes and no mess! An excellent addition to your kitchen. Go get it.
