Perfect & Simple Weekend Pancakes

Weekend.

Roll out of bed WHENEVA you want (although for me this tends to be around 9 AM anyway, because I physically cannot sleep any later). Put on some leggings and soft fuzzy socks (dudes too) and a soft tee shirt. Brush your teeth, wash your face. Make coffee. Take in the aroma. Drink coffee, in a loose ball on a comfy couch with your hands curled around the cup. Watch something terrible on TLC. Eat. Pancakes.

Sometimes it’s really just a necessity to have pancakes. But I suggest you lose the mix.

Because this is it. This is the pancake recipe. You’ll never need/want another one. It’s easy. It’s quick. It contains butter.

Top with chocolate chips, bananas, coconut, apples, WHATEVA you want (it’s your weekend after all; no boss telling you what to put in your pancakes here). Put your feet up. Lick the syrup off your fork. You deserve it.

Recipe from All Recipes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Active Time: 20 minutes

1 1/2 c ap flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/4 c milk
1 egg
3 tbsp butter, melted

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add milk, egg, and butter. Stir together with whisk until just combined (using the least amount of strokes with give you those fluffy pancakes you want; lumps are a requirement). Batter will be lumpy. Run a once over with a spatula, scraping the bowl and turning into the batter to make sure you have gotten all the dry ingredients from the bottom.

Heat a griddle or a frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray or grease with butter. Pour or scoop aprox. 1/4 c of batter for each pancake onto the heated surface (now would be the time to add chocolate chips, or any other topping you want). Brown on both sides, cooking the first side until bubbles can be seen and the pancake appears stiff. Cook the second side for ~1 minute more.

Serve warm.
