Foodie Friday: Pancakes Any Style

2 Comments

I’ve decided to come up with an awesome segment that deals with discussing two of my favorite things: food and blogging. Now, it’s time to commence with FOODIE FRIDAY!

I love to cook food. During my final year in college, I used to cook for my house and treat it as a special occasion. During this segment, I will be posting various recipes I like to use and also various restaurants that you can check out if you live in New York City. HERE WE GO!

For my first post on Foodie Friday, I’m going to keep it simple. It’s time to talk PANCAKES. I hope everyone has had at least one pancake in their lifetime, but what I love about them is that they are so malleable and you can pair it with almost anything!

My personal FAVORITE side to pancakes

If you don’t know how to make pancakes from scratch, here is a recipe for old fashioned pancakes:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of butter, melted.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

 

It sounds simple enough, but when you have your batter ready, make it fun! Add your favorite ingredients to the mix, but don’t get too crazy! The idea is to mix flavors you think would compliment each other. When I like to make pancakes, I love to add cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla to give it a different flavor.

On Pinterest, I recently saw a recipe that made pancake muffins with sausage inside, so of course I had to try it!

What would we do in life without Pinterest to help us?

The recipe is pretty simple, actually. You just create the batter, slice some sausages and distribute them among muffin tins, pour the batter, and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

As I stated before, you can always substitute your ingredients. Instead of sausage, maybe add fruit (or even CHOCOLATE). Pick and choose what’s best for your palate.

What’s the moral of this story? Never just be old-fashioned.

  1. Gabby, this segment of your blog is going to slowly drive me insane until I return to the U.S. I literally DREAM about food from home. The things I would do for some homemade pancakes right now….I just shouldn’t get into it. Don’t be surprised when I show up on your doorstep in December when I get back and expect you to cook for me.

  2. Josh here from the BlinkPack blog. Hurray for Foodie Friday — I write them on my blog too, which is how I found you. I adore pancakes — looking forward to them with my wife and three year old tomorrow (Saturday) morning. Cheers!
