I love conference. I love the talks, I love the music, and I love attending church in my pajamas. It is tradition that we have breakfast for dinner on conference Sunday. I want to just enjoy the day and not be making a big meal and my family loves breakfast foods. Last October I posted our omelette bar and said that our usual was blender pancakes and breakfast pizza but that we were trying something new. I also said that I would post the recipe for the pancakes and pizza later that day. Well it is six months later and I still haven’t posted them. We had them today for our conference breakfast and I will finally get around to posting them. This is my family’s favorite breakfast(dinner) hands down. I have been making these pancakes for years and they are amazing. They are so light that you can down a dozen before you realize it. You have to serve them with the maple butter-no subsitutions period. I can almost convince myself that this is health food because it is made with whole wheat flour. But I think the big scoop of maple butter takes it out of that category. I hope you like these as much as we do. I think they will become one of your favorites also.
I will post the breakfast pizza next.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 TB sugar
1/2 cup oil
Mix together in a blender until well combined. This is a fairly runny batter. That is what makes them so light. I make these a little smaller than our usual pancakes–makes me feel better about eating so many. Do not over cook. Serve with a nice scoop of maple butter.
1 square of softened butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla ( it calls for one but I always like to double my vanilla)
Blend togther until smooth. I usually do this in my Cuisinart. Spread over hot pancakes
I know this is just combining what you would usually put on pancakes–butter and syrup but there is something about combining them that takes them over the top. I could eat this stuff with a spoon-wait a minute I do!!!
Just another one of my kitchen gadgits from Williams and Sonoma. It is a batter dispenser. Fill it up with the pancake batter and then you just squeeze out the batter over the hot griddle. I know you could just spoon it on or use a cup or something but it just would not be as much fun. Kind of reminds me of the ketchup and mustard dispensers I see the people use at McDonalds when they are mass producing their hamburgers. I knew I missed my calling in life.
