Pancakes..


I've been experimenting with new recipes for the Missing Goat label. 
Blueberry Syrup.  Thin, chunky, sweet, not so sweet,
This called for some good pancakes... made from scratch of course!
So, Nigela came to the rescue with her yummy recipe, which you keep in a container to use when the pancake ache hits. 
Day or night

Dry Mix:
3 cups flour
3 Tablespoons baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 ounces fine sugar

Mix all the dried ingredients and keep on hand in the cupboard.
My wee assistant did the mixing.


The flour was top...


...to bottom. 

 

When you decide you want pancakes, you use 3/4 cup of dried mix and add one egg, one cup plus 1/8th of a cup of milk, and one tablespoon melted butter.


Wisk.


Cook.


Enjoy! 
This is my chunky version of a syrup - it's pretty damn yummy.


Here is where, I have to say, I thought I was rather clever - I doubled the dried mix,
and put it in an air tight container. 
I then used my dry erase marker to write what to add to make the pancakes.
I also did a cute little story on lavender over at HGTV.ca

Sunday is pancake day at our house - a tradition that started when I was little and I have carried that with me for my family to enjoy. I love pancakes so much that I actually collect pancake recipes in their very own special book so this weekend I will try this recipe and let you know if it makes into the book.

You know I use that Nigella approach to pancakes too and it is brilliant. Great for grumpy morning children who don't know what they want to eat first thing. xoxo

It all looks yummy, including the lil' floured toes, too sweet!

Have great day,

How wonderful that you are doing a fundraiser for race horses...so many end up at the slaughterhouse. Let me know if I can help...I would be happy to donate an item if there is an auction.

I love pancakes! Midge forgot to put a top on - yikes! Cute toes.

They look yummy! The pancakes, not the toes. They are just cute! :) Carla

Vintage Simple said...

Sunday is pancake day here, too. We've been experimenting with skinny, Norwegian pancakes, lately. (We used to eat those growing up - filled with dulce de leche which is beyond decadent.) Your chunky version of syrup looks equally delicious, as well.

xoox,

Pancakes from scratch it where it's at. Nice job. What better way to spend a Sunday. (Nice pics too.)
Sunday's Pancakes would be a great name for a pancake company.

The pancakes look incredible... but the blueberry syrup sent me over the edge!!! When you get your recipe together and begin packaging, I would love to know if you ship to Michigan!!!:-)))))

I also had a few moments so I got to browse your lavender psot on hgtv. I adore the idea of putting a sachet in the dryer and the idea of using the dry erase markers?! You are brilliant. Really!:-)))

Enjoy these last days of summer.

Blessings,
Melanie

Hi Heather,

I love this idea & intend to try this pancake recipe. Yum! That foot picture is so adorable.

Just this morning I came across your lovely greenhouse in the August 2010 edition of Country Living UK! Very nice spread and photos...

Valerie said...

There is nothing better on a Saturday morning than little hands elbow deep in pancake mix! I do the same thing where I save the dry part of the mix and it is SUCH a timesaver in the morning.

Sarah Jane said...

yum, i'm now totally making pancakes this weekend. such a great idea. thank you:)

shopgirl said...

Clever idea to pre-mix the dry mix! It would save so much time!

I love making pancakes, especially for guests. I find Italians don't really appreciate breakfast food that much.

Sweet photos!
