I am always on the lookout for good, filling breakfast recipes. When I stumbled on this recipe a while ago, I was ecstatic. Easy pancakes? Sign me up! I made them and was disappointed with the flavor. It is a simple recipe, but really didn’t have a taste. I started experimenting with items to add. I have added everything from vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and chocolate chips. I love trying new things based on my mood. It did make it into my recipe book, but I am still working on perfecting it to my tastes. I would also love to make it more filling. It started out with 8 servings, but I recently pared it down to 4. Even with that, some sausage and a glass of milk, I am still hungry about an hour and a half later. I would love to add fruit on the side, but I can’t at the moment (stupid budget).
Here’s the ingredients I used this time. My milk went bad, so I used buttermilk – it was the only thing I had in the fridge.
All Mixed up
I then used this

All baked up
My sad little breakfast. I didn’t have any syrup and butter totally didn’t provide a suitable substitute. In fact, it kind of sucked. Especially since I didn’t even have milk to wash it down. Sad Face!
Totally not filling. I am thinking of having peanut butter on it tomorrow to add some protein and maybe make it more filling. Or ham and cheese…..wonder how that would go. And just a note about the spray – that is my number one “secret” to things releasing perfectly. People always ask how my cakes don’t stick. Any time I am making something that might stick, out the spray comes. Now, this isn’t your ordinary Pam (personally, I think those things are nasty – just pure chemicals and people use them for EVERYTHING. Really? Spray directly on food to save some calories? I don’t think SO!). It is a flour spray. Kind of the new fangled butter and flour coating of the pan. Works every time and smells delicious 🙂
