From Scratch, To Delicious

Our favorite way to wake up on Sunday Mornings is with the scent of pancakes wafting throughout the house. The Kids are instantly excited to gather into the kitchen and to the table, waiting for breakfast to finish. They will typically grab their Tablet, A Coloring Book, or favorite car and impatiently wait. Getting my kids to hold off from snacking, while I finish preparing their meal is insane. It’s like asking the ocean not to make waves! And we ALL know that is not going to happen. But let’s be honest, could you wait to dive into sticky maple syrup or fresh berries?!?
Fluffy on the inside and melt-in-your-mouth delicious, pancakes in our house is equal to water and milk! I found this recipe while searching Pinterest for easy prep meals for the week. I tried this recipe before and somehow, I screwed it up. So, being a momma who thrives on, “I know, I can do it”, decided to give it another whirl. I went all in, forgetting about the Dishes that would follow, and the flour I would have to sweep, from my assistances. While still in my favorite pair of slippers, I asked “Alexa” to play our favorite morning jams. A Weekend playlist, that will start the day off right or at least while we attempt these pancakes.
Here is the simple recipe that we used:
3 large eggs
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup buttermilk
1 tsp honey (or maple syrup)
Pinch of cinnamon
1. Medium Heat a large, non-stick pan.
2. Separate the egg whites into one bowl, and the yolks in another bowl. You’ll eventually use both. (Soooo, Jenkins party of SIX, just cracked the entire egg into the bowl)
3. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
4. Add buttermilk, vanilla, and flour to the bowl with the egg yolks. Whisk until blended.(Again, Jenkins Party Of SIX, already blended the ingredients, into one large bowl.!)
5. Slowly add your dry ingredients into the egg yolk mixture and mix. (DONE!!,Jenkins style.)
6.Whip egg whites, until smooth, and easily able to fold and pour out of bowl. This is the key to fluffy pancakes.
7. Scoop ¼ cup of batter into your heated pan and allow for the bottom to brown. When you see bubbles rising on your pancakes you’ll know it’s time to flip. Turn them over and allow the other side to turn golden brown and delicious.
8. Serve with your favorite toppings.
I am happy to report, that these pancakes turned out great, this time. The kids enjoyed their favorite toppings of whipped cream and berries, while aggressively pouring the syrup.
Point of this Story is not giving up and enjoying the moments. Although, we certainly had some egg shells between the fluffiness, everyone was happy. I forgot about the mountain of dishes that was to follow and the floor that NOW needed mopping. Jenkins Party Of SIX, enjoyed and danced the morning away to delicious pancakes. Together.
