Random Mommy Tip #1

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 4:06 PM
I will occasionally include a random mommy tip-just a little something that makes life a little simpler, more fun, or healthier. Here's the first one:

I started making pancakes from scratch after I began looking at the ingredients on prepared mixes from the store. This pancake recipe is one that I altered from a foodnetwork.com recipe. My kids love these pancakes and ask for them almost every day. They’re so sweet that I don’t even use syrup with them. I mix the dry ingredients and keep the mix in a container, ready to use.

Dry ingredients to keep mixed:
3 ½ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

When you’re ready to make the pancakes:
1 ¼ cup mix
1 egg
¾ cup milk
1/3 stick butter, melted
½ teaspoon vanilla

Mix each wet ingredient in separately. Spray pan and heat on medium. To make it a little more fun, make tiny, small, medium, and large pancakes. I also make letters and spell words for my children (no, I’m not very artistic and they’re not perfect, but my children can usually tell what they are.) It’s a great way to throw in a little fun lesson with breakfast.
