Summer is here. I know making breakfast for my littles is and always be one of my favorite things about being a MOM! My youngest child has many Knick names. Short stack is by far one of my fondest. Because she is just so small and adorable. Just like a small stack of silver dollar pancakes.
Pancakes have so many recipes, so many shortcuts and so many wonderful variations. Do you like them crispy? Do you like them fluffy? Do you hate making them from scratch? Do you only make them from scratch? So many questions, so may different ways to top them. Yet we all agree, WE LOVE THEM!
Lets talk mixes. After all I am an advocate of ease! When you have kiddo cooks, this is the way to go. I only use a COMPLETE MIX! All the cooking skills are able to be practiced, and little to no mess. I am a huge fan of the KRISTEAZ Brand. I find they are not only, COMPLETE, but Tasty. They are cost friendly as well.
Toppings are endless. It is summer and berries are at the peak. Any child would never turn away breakfast with a sweet side of whipped cream and berry. We want them to eat and they want something sweet.
So, if you want to be Super Mom or Super Dad you can always make from scratch. The Recipe is easy. You will need 2 Eggs, 1/4 cup oil, 1 stick melted Butter, 1 3/4 cup Milk, 2 cups Flour, 1 tsp salt, 2 TBSP Baking Powder, 3 TBSP Sugar. Combine all Ingredients and DO NOT OVER MIX. LET IT SIT FOR 5 Minutes to rise. Heat pan and rub with Stick of Butter. Pour Pancakes in desired size. I like to use a small 1/4 cup measuring cup to make uniform pancakes.
ANYONE CAN COOK, now you have a great Staple for Breakfast.
