Saturday Morning Pancakes!

Pancakes! I wanted pancakes this morning.  Settled for a sausage biscuit instead. Albeit that biscuit was baked with einkorn flour, non-hydrogenated shortening and the sausage was nitrites free. Good and tasty eating; but I still want the pancakes.  So here’s this:

How to Make Perfect Pancakes

Here’s the recipe given at the site above. 

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
1 1/2 cup milk
This gave me a batch of seven really fluffy pancakes. Alternatively, you can use your favorite boxed pancake mix if you’d prefer.

Tip numbered 6 was new to me!
                                         Add toppings before you flip.

Now I can have as many blueberries or pecans per pancake as I want!!

There are 6 other tips at the site HERE.

What a neat idea!

“Building a mini fire pit is simpler than it sounds. All you’ll need are a few terracotta pots, clean-burning heat fuel cans, (make sure they are safe for food to be directly heated over), and some rocks or pebbles to surround the burner and hold it upright in the pot. These fuel cans burn for about 45 minutes, so you may want to buy a few back-ups if you’re considering roasting marshmallows for a longer period of time.”  source
