Mardi Gras is here!
Which for many means pancakes for supper.
So I want to share with you my favourite basic pancake recipe real quick today. I found this one morning when I realized I was out of boxed pancake mix and this recipe came up as the first search result and I went with it.
The nice thing about this recipe is that is very basic and allows for you to add items like fresh or frozen fruit as well as make substitutions of apple sauce for the butter component.
It isn’t in the recipe but I always like to add 1 teaspoon of vanilla in with my liquid ingredients.
This evening I will be adding some blueberries to my batter as all 3 of my kids enjoy blueberry pancakes and pairing them with some bacon that will be sprinkled with some brown sugar and baked in the oven to candy it.
