breakfast love: {pancakes...from scratch!}

Anytime I hear/read "from scratch" I get a little nervous. Hives, really.
Those words sound so complicated. So involved!

This morning when my hubby requested pancakes, I had to announce we had, sadly, run out of pancake mix. Upon seeing the look of disappointment on his face, I quickly said, trying to appear brave -- "No fear...I'll just make them...from scratch!" Oi.

Thankfully, pancakes are super easy to make from scratch. All I had to do was whip out my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook, pages stuck together and scribbled on, and turn to "Pancakes - Easy." (Would I really want the "Pancakes - Hard" recipe???)

So I gathered the ingredients (all stuff I and most people already have)...

1 lg egg
1 cup all-purpose flour (or whole wheat if you want to go healthy!)
3/4 cup milk (or use 1 cup buttermilk!)
1 TB granulated white or brown sugar
2 tb vegetable oil
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

I beat it all together in a medium-sized mixing bowl:

Poured my batter onto my pre-heated pan, already sprayed with cooking spray, of course. :)

Then I cooked until bubbly on top. Recipe yields 8 4" cakes, or 4 larger -- we make 'em big in our house!

We devoured ours with fresh fruit and cinnamon applesauce...and of course butter and plenty of syrup!

What did you have for your Sunday morning feast?



  1. Mmmm pancakes! We had 'em today too. A la grocery store brand, though :P

  2. Don't you just love for your husband. I always enjoy cooking for Steve and the kids "when they were home". It is a tangible way of showing your love.


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
