It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, let’s make it a good one!
This pancake recipe is adapted from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/good-old-fashioned-pancakes/. It’s completely fool-proof and quick- perfect for you non-morning people. These pancakes will be ready faster than you can brew your pot of coffee.
1 1/2 cup flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1 1/4 cup Lactaid milk
3 tbsp. melted Earth Balance natural buttery spread, soy-free (found at Whole Foods)
(optional) 1 cup fresh blueberries
(optional) 100% pure maple syrup (no added flavorings)
(optional) a pinch of powdered sugar
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Throw an oven-safe dish into it- a sheet of aluminum foil will also suffice. This is where you can keep the finished pancakes warm until the entire batch is ready.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In a separate bowl, mix milk, egg and melted butter.
Slowly pour the liquid bowl contents into the dry ingredients while stirring. Mix until smooth.
Heat a dab of butter in frying pan. Scoop about 1/3 cup of the mixture into the pan. Push a few blueberries into the top. (I prefer this to adding them to the mixture in the bowl- better distribution).
When the pancake bubbles start to pop, it’s ready to be flipped.
Once you’ve finished your whole batch, sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar and dig in!
