Mama’s Pancakes

Pancakes are a Sunday morning tradition in my household.  I never grew up loving pancakes.  I was always more of an eggs girl.  It wasn’t until I came to Nashville and my husband took me to the famous Pancake Pantry that I fell in love.  We used to wait in a line around the building.  But it was worth it.  Then, the second best pancakes I ever had were at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.  I dream about those pancakes.  They may be my #1 actually.  If you are ever there….oh you must get them.  I love to watch all the ladies eat egg whites and a green smoothie while I’m shoving my mug with a pancake the size of a tire and extra crispy hash browns.  I can’t help it.  It’s never going to be me.

Ahhhh this is them!!  Pancake heaven.  

Anyways, I have not made pancakes from a box in probably 5 years.  Once I discovered how easy and quick it is to make your own (and delcious!!!) I was NEVER going back.  And I never have.  I honestly can’t even tell you where I found this recipe from.  I’ve tweaked it a bit over the years but the just of it remains the same.  Add blueberries, chocolate chips, whatever.  I like them plain.  Always, always, warm your syrup too.  If your syrup isn’t in a GLASS jar…throw it out because it’s garbage.  Everyone loves these pancakes and they are so versatile.  Add some healthy mix-ins such as ground flax seed, almond milk, etc. whatever you like!

We all call these “Mama’s Pancake’s” and the boys ask for them constantly.  Hope they become a Sunday staple for your family too 🙂

RECIPE:

Mama’s Pancakes

1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

1 TBS Sugar

1 TSP Salt

3 1/2 TSP Baking Powder

1 1/4 Cup Milk

1 Egg

3 TBS Butter

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Combine egg and milk and whisk.  Melt 3 Tablespoons of butter and then quickly add to the egg/milk mixture.  Then add it to the dry ingredients and whisk until combined. If it seems to thick, add a little bit more milk.

Grease a griddle pan and cook pancakes over medium heat until cooked and lighted brown on both sides.
