It's that time of year again when we celebrate Maple Syrup in Indiana! The National Maple Syrup Festival will be the first two weekends in March and as you know, our family loves it! So, I thought I would share one of my FAVORITE foods!
I love to eat pancakes anywhere and anytime! My favorite meal to eat out at a restaurent is usually breakfast / brunch and much of this has to do with great big, yummy, plate-sized pancakes!
At our house - we have pancakes for dinner quite often! Miss Bug definitely has her momma's genes on this one - she is up for pancakes any time of the day too! Last year, she even requested pancakes for her Birthday dinner!
This is my favorite recipe for homemade pancakes! I grew up on these pancakes and my momma used to serve them for dinner too!! The BEST thing about this recipe is that you should have these 7 ingredients in your kitchen at any given time - they are all basic BUT put together - they make fabulous pancakes!
Here we go:
Combine egg, milk and oil.
Add dry ingredients to this and stir JUST until moistened. This is key - do NOT over-mix!
Make sure your griddle is nice and HOT - I usually spray with non-stick spray or add a little oil to it to keep that first batch from sticking.
The key to a great pancake is knowing when to flip! How do you know...? When they look like this!!!
Fry up some ham, warm the maple syrup and it doesn't get much better than this - if you ask me!!
