Perfect Pancakes

by Courtney on May 31, 2010

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  I hope you’re all enjoying your day, and hopefully spending it with some good friends or family. :)

So yesterday I decided to take the day off from blogging.  We had a couple different parties to go to, and I just didn’t feel like having to explain to a bunch of people I didn’t really know why I was snapping photos of my food. ;)  I’m sure you all understand!  But I can tell you that we had a great day filled with lots of fun friends, family, & food.  There’s nothing like a barbecue on a nice warm day, am I right?  Part of our day was spent up on Saratoga Lake, just hanging out on the party boat, catchin’ some rays, and chit-chatting away.  It was awesome! :)

Fast-forward to today, and I have been “a girl on the go”!  Yesterday, I didn’t set an alarm and let myself sleep in until 10:30 (haven’t done that in FOREVER!)  TODAY by 10:30, I have already gone grocery shopping, cooked up a batch of roasted veggies to have for the week, baked a batch of cookies, washed a crap-load of dishes, and also made some DELICIOUS PANCAKES! :-P

I saw this recipe last week on Tina’s blog, and knew I had to give them a try.  I kept the entire recipe the same, except I ended up throwing in a tablespoon of brown sugar into the mix too.  I was surprised when her recipe said it made 8 pancakes, because I got 13 out of my batch!  It must be a sign…13 is my “lucky” number. ;)

I threw some mini chocolate chips into 2 pancakes for the hubby, and made about 4 pancakes with some fresh blueberries I picked up at the store this morning.

His & Hers (as always) ;)

Delicious Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1.5 cups light vanilla soy milk
  • 3 oz. plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp canola oil

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Heat griddle over medium heat & coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Drop 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto griddle
  • Cook each pancake for 2-3 minutes then flip.  Cook on the other side for about 1 minute.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings…ENJOY! :-D

I topped my pancakes with a drizzle of light syrup & more fresh blueberries.  You can add 1 more pancake to this plate, because I totally went back for one more.  They were SO GOOD!  Light & fluffy, not too sweet, with nice crispy edges…just how I like ‘em :)

We also enjoyed some fresh “margarita iced coffee” with breakfast, courtesy of the hubby, who brewed some up while I was grocery shopping.

In a little while, I’m planning on a nice hot & sweaty run, since I’ve taken the last 2 days off & have been enjoying more treats than normal. ;)  I have one more batch of “goodies” to make, and then Jay & I are headed over to Sarah & Jeff’s house for a barbecue.  Seriously, I cannot get enough of these things once the weather gets nice!

Hope your all enjoying this beautiful day! 8-)
