Saturday Morning Pancakes

Happiness is...
Waking up to your ten year old making pancakes for the first time all by herself, 
from finding the recipe on the computer to taking the grill down from the top of the cupboard.
Without any help from Mom or Dad. 
They were the best Saturday Morning Pancakes we have ever tasted.

just to get her to learn how to make coffee : )

Pancake Recipe

2 cups all purpose flour
4 Tbsp white sugar
4 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 eggs beaten
2 cups milk
4 Tbsp canola oil

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Make a well in the centre and pour in milk, egg and oil, mix until smooth. Pour into 4 inch circles on hot griddle until bubbles form and flip.

  4. those pancakes look WAY better than mine. i can't wait until my son starts cooking for the family. ;) you have a wonderful family!

  5. This sounds like a great morning!!

  6. Ok, you didn't mention the status of the kitchen AFTER the independent pancake making, and that's a HUGE part of the overall enjoyment in my book.

    But still...that's pretty amazing. I'm happy when mine pour their own cereal.

  7. Surprisingly it was quite clean. Yet another added bonus to the morning.

  8. OOOhhh...I'm peeking in through the that what it's like to have GIRLS??

    Wow. Just wow.

    I just quit wiping my 15 year old's butt last year...

  9. These look great! Our kiddos just love pancakes and I have a mix that uses Kamut Khorasan Wheat flour and it is so incredibly healthy! Yummy pancakes - now I feel the need to make a batch! LOL

  10. I can only imagine how wonderful that was!

  11. Quite impressed!!! We only use pancake mixes!! Thanks for the recipe! I'll pass it to my teens and see what they come up with....and I know that the kitchen will be a mess!! Just know them!!
