I had a craving for pancakes yesterday and decided that even if I woke up craving oatmeal (which I did! I love to eat things in bowls more than plates) that I’d make them anyways.
It took a few tries, but I finally got some hot cakes on my plate!
Orange you glad I looked into the box before pouring?? This Quaker oatmeal mix doesn’t have a bag inside and it appears that spiders made webs inside! AHHHH!
Perhaps this flashlight will help you see the horrors
I inspected my other trusty pancake mix more closely and discovered that it was long inspired. It probably would have been fine to eat, but I just pictured stale pancakes and don’t think I’ll ever want to take the risk of making a whole batch and not having them be 100% delicious. I actually think I remember the last time I made these them not tasting very good. Perhaps that is why.
Good old fashioned made-from-scratch: whole wheat flour + baking powder (and milk, salt, a pinch of sugar and egg white)
Into the mixing bowl:
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- Scant 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp kosher salt
- ~1 tbsp Stevia in the Raw (I’d leave this out next time -they were too sweet!!)
- 1 egg white
The batter was a bit on the thick side – which I like for flipping – but you might want to add the full 2/3 cup milk to help it mix a bit better.
The batch made 1 large and 3 small cakes (I always pour the first one large by accident, but I actually like pancakes to be small!) I had the large and 2 small but didn’t quite finish the large because he was larger than I thought under there and a bit burnt on the bottom
With syrup, coconut and a tbsp of Maranatha! Totally forgot to be creative with the ingredients. The pancakes were awesome though, and I’m going to stick with this recipe again!
Floating coffee. It was like a breakfast cocktail 😉 I have always wanted these glasses. They can be used for hot or cold and are dishwasher and microwave safe (always love that!)
