Ok friends, this one is a good one. And how I stubbled upon this recipe is kinda funny… So my kids take dance. My hubby’s family runs a dance studio, in fact my father-in-law was in Footloose- yes the original movie! I spend a good portion of my afternoons during the school year at the dance studio. The mom’s always sit and chat while the kids are taking their lessons. One day we were discussing breakfast options. (I know.. thrilling hah! the things mom’s talk about are fascinating)
Anyways, one of our “dance mom buddies” is actually dad. He chimed in to the conversation and told us about his super easy pancake recipe he makes for his kids all the time. Not gonna lie, I was a little surprised to hear he had a great pancake recipe up his sleeve but I loved it! So awesome when you see men helping out in the kitchen and even more amazing that he had a pancake recipe memorized! He shared the recipe with us mom’s and I gave it a whirl. My kids ate them up. (I ate them up!)
After making them for a few months, it’s become my pancake go-to. They are fluffy and easy, great flavor. The recipe actually calls for an egg. I love it when pancakes have eggs in them. The egg adds to the flavor and the extra protein is nice. I throw all the ingredients into my Blendtec and press the batter setting and let it mix!
The best part is pouring the pancakes straight from the the Blendtec jar. Makes clean up a breeze. I loved this picture below, a little snapshot of what many of our lazy summer mornings look like. Pancakes cooking while hungry sleepy kids watch a few cartoons. Even the old plastic plate snuck into the picture.
When you see that bubbling action and smooth sides you know it’s time to flip!
Mornings with warm fluffy pancakes are just plain yummy.
