Update: I now have a recipe blog which has great low-carb, high protein dishes. Check it out and let me know what you think :) Delishix
Yeah, I’m posting a recipe. You wanna make somethin’ of it??
Mr. Plain is the cook at our house. And the grocery shopper. And kitchen cleaner. Yes, I know how lucky I am.
He makes most dinners, but Friday and Saturday nights are mine. Friday is Hamburger Night, and Saturday (tonight) is Pancake Night. And I have the easiest recipe for you. It dirties one pitcher, one measuring cup, and one set of measuring spoons.
Get a pitcher that you can mix things in AND pour batter with. The long island iced tea is optional, but recommended.
I use whole grain pastry flour, but this recipe works with regular as well.
PLAIN JANE PANCAKES (OK, I found the basic recipe online somewhere)
Dump the following into the pitcher:
- 1 cup whole grain pastry flour or regular flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. oil
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup buttermilk*
- sometimes I add a little cinnamon
Don’t have buttermilk? I never do either. Just slosh about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into a 1 cup measure and fill the rest with milk. Stir and let sit for a minute or so — instant buttermilk.
Give it all a good mix with a whisk and you’re ready to go.
It makes about 12-18 small pancakes — less if you are as inept at pouring as I am. It is plenty for our 3 kids. Super-easy — hope you like it!
