Everyone has those nights where they have breakfast for dinner right? I know I do! As much as I cook, I do have those nights where I just need a break!
So last night we had a breakfast night of pancakes and bacon for dinner. Levi, with his food allergies cannot have just any old pancake mix, and I always have to make them from scratch. Doesn’t bother me though, because I like knowing exactly what is being put into it.
These are another recipe that I just tried last night (because I was short a couple of ingredients from the last time I made the previous recipe!):
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose white flour
- 3 tablespoons organic cane sugar
- 2 1⁄2teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1⁄4teaspoon himalayan sea salt
- 2 1⁄2tablespoons margarine (I use smart balance with olive oil… and then I melted it)
- 3⁄4cup water
- 2 small RIPE bananas mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together into medium mixing bowl.
- Melt 2 1/2 Tbsp margarine in measuring cup and add to the dry mixture.
- If you do not have a non-stick pan, make sure to grease your skillet first.
- In a small bowl, add water and bananas; Mix well. Add vanilla and cinnamon and stir.
- Stir liquid mixture into the dry ingredients until it is thoroughly moistened.
- It is OK if this batter is lumpy.
- Cook the pancakes over medium-high heat on the stove-top (or 375F on electric frying pans).
- Cook pancakes until the tops are bubbly and the bottoms browned.
- Turn the pancakes over to cook other side (approximately four minutes per side).
- Serve hot with margarine, a little honey, pure maple syrup or a little fruit jam!
- Actual cooking time will depend on the size and type of pan you use. I had a large skillet and cooked 3 at a time. I had it on medium heat.
Quote of the day:
Do you love Ina Garten? I do. I love her show and her recipes, and I always get a kick out of when she says to use “good” vanilla, or “good” eggs…. like… I’d hope they aren’t bad!! So I found this quote and laughed so hard! I had to share it:
