Our Family's Favorite Pancake Recipe

Our Family's Favorite Pancake Recipe

My kids are seriously crazy for pancakes. They ask — and sometimes demand them pretty much every weekend. When I am feeling generous (usually if they've given me enough time to have a cup of coffee first before they ask) I will make them their favorite breakfast: Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes with chocolate chips and sprinkles with maple syrup and whipped cream on top. Man, they are spoiled!  Don't worry, I do make sure they get a good teeth-brushing in afterwards and veggies later in the day. So, yeah. We've tried a lot of different recipes we've found on the ol' internet. We've finally settled on this one — our favorite pancake recipe.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (or milk)
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract

Extras: Chocolate chips, sprinkles, whipped cream and syrup

1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix together then add remaining ingredients.

2. Spoon batter into greased flat pan over medium heat. Add chocolate chips and sprinkles then flip. Cook each side until golden brown.

3. Top with whipped cream and syrup and enjoy!
