Pancake perfection for this year’s Mother’s Day celebrations. Because who can pass up a good brunch?
I recently came to two realizations: this is my first Mother’s Day celebration as an actual mommy (yay!) and, I really love pancakes.
Okay, well, the pancake love isn’t one of my latest “a-ha” moments. But it’s been a while since I’ve actually devoured a stack of flapjacks for breakfast.
Mother’s Day brunch is a great way to celebrate the women in our lives. Mommies, grandmothers, aunts, sisters – these are some of the women that shape our every day, so it’s natural to want to raise a toast with them over a table of crepes, yogurt, granola, frittatas, and other classic brunch-like dishes.
Today, I decided to share my favorite pancake recipe. It took a couple of years to really find a batter that achieved THE perfect pancake: fluffy, golden, and slightly sweet in taste.
Pancake Perfection Batter
1 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
1.5 tbsp baking powder
1 cup milk
2 tbsp oil
Sift flour in a large mixing bowl then add sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk egg and milk. Add egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients and combine.
Once all ingredients are well-mixed, add oil and mix.
In the center of a non-stick pan, drop a ladle’s worth of batter and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
