Pancakes…Mmmmmmm!

Man. If you’ve ever been woken up by the sweet smell of French toast or pancakes, this one’s for you.

Who can resist bread-related products?
After all — Bread is the one and only universal food, is it not?

Ancient peoples from all corners of the world discovered the combination of cooked ground grain and water.
Bake it, fry it, steam, boil or even sun-dry it.

Think of the possibilities:

cake
cookies
muffins
crackers
Cupcakes.
The result of what happens when flour and water mix with some human creativity.

You can buy the easy shmeasy ready made mix…or …make your own.
All ya need is:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
butter or better yet…….
6 tablespoons peanut oil

Make sure you pour the batter in as perfect a circle as you can. I know…but concentrate eh?

Don’t leave the stove, stay there and watch it…….real closely..Then turn it over right when the edges start to brown and the middle starts to bubble.

Waalah!

Toppings:
What’s your pleasure?

Banana?
Dried cranberries?

Chocolate chip?
Sliced strawberries?

Whipped Cream?..
Or good ole Maple syrup. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Flapjacks, crêpes, blintzes.
Doesn’t much matter what ya call ‘em.

Sizzling goodness….ahhhhhhhh.
Whatcha waitin fer? Go gitcher self some eh.
I’m thinkin we could all use a lil comfort food right about now.

    I’m not a big pancake fan because I find them too sugary sweet. I prefer eggs and pork products, but your pictures were so purdy I almost fell for them again ;-)

    Indian bakeries bake fresh buns at 4.00 in the evening and you can smell that warm doughy smell a long way.Not to mention that every road has a bakery on it!

    And I just finished eating breakfast too!

    I love pancakes. And waffles. And French toast. And syrup. They just don’t love me anymore. Too many carbs and everything goes haywire for me.

    I just ate a big lunch, but I could go for some apple/cinnamon pancakes and sausage

  13. joe says:

    This thing ate my damned comment last night! GRRRRR! I’ll try to repeat it.

    Dammit Angel, you’re trying to make me fat, AGAIN! I love your posts, but I can’t stop gaining weight. It’s all your fault.

  14. BiasedGirl says:

    Angel, you are just mean! ;) Omg! they look delicious. Thank God I can’t gain weight from just looking….

  15. Katie says:

    Pancakes are ok but to really get me going in the mornings give me bagels and lox.

  16. MK says:

    There ya go again Angel, making us all hungry again. :)

    You best be careful – people and companies are suing everyone for everything.

    McDonalds was sued because some dimwit tried to suck down one of their notoriously hot coffees and burned himself as a result… McDonalds really ought to have put a disclaimer : “hey McMoron, don’t McChug the McCoffee or you could suffer a McBurn…”

    Another guy sued a bunch of fast food chains because……. THEY MADE HIM, (yes “MADE HIM”) fat (what’s next, suing your mother for giving you a “sweet tooth” or “lack of impulse control” gene!

    Oh well…If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em… Class action anyone? ——

    Ever wonder why no animals have to be killed to make these desserts…
    That way there can be no reason to forbid eating them….
    Thank GOD for creating sugar!!!!
