My boyfriend loves pancakes, he’s actually a bit of a connoisseur and makes a different recipe every week or two. So when he woke up early today to watch his San Francisco 49ers play the Carolina Panthers, I decided to try making some for him.
I found this recipe online from Little Sunny Kitchen that looked perfect: it was simple, and I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. Since my boyfriend was watching football, which can get intense, I opted to make small pancakes that he could eat with his hands and dunk in syrup. In addition to the ingredients from the original recipe, I also added a teaspoon of vanilla and a half teaspoon of cinnamon. They were delicious!
- Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 5 strawberries
- maple syrup (for dipping)
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, set aside.
- In another bowl, mix milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. If milk isn't warm, the butter will harden when you mix it in. If this happens, heat milk mixture on low in a saucepan until mixed or microwave for 10 seconds at a time until butter is melted.
- Combine the milk mixture with the dry mixture. Slowly, turn mixture over with a fork until mixed. Be careful not to over mix or your pancakes will not be as fluffy!
- Melt a pat of butter in a pan on medium heat.
- Using a small spoon, put a scoop of pancake mixture in the warm pan. When bubbles start appearing, flip and brown the other side.
- Top with sliced strawberries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Serve immediately with syrup!
