This may seem too simple to blog about to some. However, this was my very, very first from scratch recipe that replaced something on our shopping list and started saving us money 10 years ago. Therefore, since this is kind of a new ‘branch’ on this blog about doing more in your home cheaper and easier, I thought my first DIY was the perfect starting point. To those who already have a recipe, bear with me. To those who don’t, please give this a try as I promise it is so so easy!! And really good. So good in fact, that my grandma asked me for the recipe! I kid you not! So without further ado, here we go.
Super Fluffy Pancakes ~ 284 carbs total recipe
2 1/2 C flour 2 eggs
2 Tbs. baking powder 2 cups milk
2 Tbs. sugar 4 Tbs. oil
1 tsp. salt
To make an already cheap recipe even more so, I use powdered milk. You don’t taste any difference and the pancakes turn out the same if not a little better.
Now, are you ready for the really hard directions? :
- Whisk all ingredients until smooth.
- Pour by the ladle full into a preheated skillet. My dad always told me that making sure the pan is good and hot is the secret to good, no mess, pancakes. He was right of course!
- Flip when they are ready and then remove when ready.
- Slather on the butter and syrup…
- Do you really need these directions??
The great thing about these is that you can save any extra batter you have in a squeeze bottle, like an empty ranch container, in the fridge for a week and just make a couple as you want them. Or you can make all of them right away and freeze them individually so when you need a quick breakfast you can throw them in the microwave. Not as good as fresh, but better than a breakfast from the gas station!
