Makin' it Monday: Pancakes

You can ask anyone who knows me, pancakes are my favorite food. Of all time. While in NYC the old gang all gathered for dinner. We were discussing food, and my friend Ariel did food impressions of different people and we had to guess them. Needless to say, it was hilarious and mine were, of course, pancakes. I suppose I could even have a spin-off blog and only discuss the deliciousness of pancakes, and different kinds of pancakes. I happen prefer mine with apples or blueberries.

There are a great many things you can do with pancakes. So I thought I'd whip out my Mother's Joy Of Cooking to peruse the ways of my pancake master making mother.

This book has not seen better days, it's seen the BEST days! 

There are so many pancakes to make!!

Above is the first page on pancakes, and below is one of the many reasons I love my mother. The recipe in the book makes 14 pancakes. I'm but me. She figured out how to make three pancakes.  Which is a recipe I divided in half (except for the egg, I just used a whole egg- no sense in dividing it!)

3 Pancakes:

1/2 c Flour

 1/2 c Milk (I used almond milk)

and the remnants:

1 egg
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt

Beat them together until everthing is all mixed and mingled

Out Stove-top clock has been stuck at 9:37 since sometime in the 90's. This stove however is amazing, and has lasted us for so long!

Sadly I can never get pancakes to flip nicely.

Delicious. These pancakes are slathered in Butter and Honey!

They look burnt for some reason, but my taste buds give you promises that they were not. (I may have gobbled them down too fast to take another picture.) In any-case, enjoy!
