I’ll just say it… we’re one pancake eatin’ family!
We all love them (especially Wyatt), and used to buy the dry premixed stuff. Mixes are super easy, and tasty enough to make a four year old happy. Up until a month or so ago, that was fine by us. Boy we had no idea what we were missing!
Lucky for us Georgia actually got some snow. It was enough to shut down Atlanta and our suburb of Peachtree City for a few days, and it was great! We never lost power; Wyatt got to use his new sled from Santa Claus; I got to hide away inside with my new baby Ruby; and we found the ultimate pancake recipe!!
We were out of our baking mix, but trying to explain that to a four year old and sell him on toast is like trying to tell a Hell’s Angel that Vespas are cool. He ain’t hearing it. So I went where I always go when I need to find anything and everything… Pinterest. I found this recipe for perfect pancakes , and they really are just that.
Brian has made these at least five times in the past month, and they are consistently AWESOME! These are fluffy, have great flavor, and it’s about as fast to measure out as the packaged stuff. These are wonderful plain or with blueberries dropped in at the last minute (Wyatt’s personal favorite), but we discovered that by mixing chopped fresh strawberries into the batter it turns these into an absolutely wonderful sweet treat!
These strawberry pancakes are the perfect Valentine breakfast for your sweetheart!
