wanna score some points this weekend? make a batch of these. they can certainly be altered and made healthier (substitute some wheat flour, use rice dream instead of milk) but if you're in the mood for some good, belly filling, real deal pancakes, stick to the recipe::
just whisk up the wet, then sift in the dry. give it all a nice airy, thorough whisking and set it aside for five minutes until it gets all fluffy and puffy::
i use the 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion them out, but i don't fill it all the way. i keep them on the smaller side. let them sit on the griddle until little bubbles start coming to the surface and popping, then flip, flip (i flip early. i like them light, just golden)::
my favorite thing to do is lay on some super ripe banana slices. after you add them, cover them with a little more batter and let them cook a bit longer than the plain ones::
they are unbelievable. sweet banana goodness. anything can be added in this manner, from chocolate chips to blueberries to strawberry and kiwi slices! last week i made an additional half batch and replaced a few tablespoons of flour with a few tablespoons of cocoa powder. oh. man. i'm not going to lie, i also added a few chocolate chips and i may or may not have eaten them with whipped cream. okay, i did.
where was i? oh yes, now just bring on the butter and syrup::
this is how i eat mine::
little bite-sized stacks of fluffy sweetness. we make these every saturday. i love saturdays.
