I’ll call this image…breakfast with Hulk. He insists on transforming into the Hulk most days. This generally includes walking around the house sans shirt with the Hulk fists sighing because some villain took a toy. This morning he requested the full on costume, so I obliged. He then insisted on chocolate chip pancakes and I would be the worst to decline this request, so I agreed. He loves to help in the kitchen and it makes me so happy that I can include him on some meal prep. We’re also working on a fun project, an expansion of this blog, if you will, so look out for a special announcement coming out soon. Hopefully this week. Speaking of this week, if you have not heard, Cinco de Mayo is this week and this blog is going to be in full on food celebration mode. I’m planning to post every day with a fun, delicious recipe to help you celebrate as well. When churros and hot chocolate are involved, you know it’s going to be good. I’m also going to share some healthier enchiladas and Mexican rice and of course, queso dip. Because cheese.
I mentioned yesterday, this past week was bleh an that’s putting it mildly. A colleague and friend had shared a wonderful author with me who also happens to have a blog, The Hands Free Mama. My first time on her blog and I saw this post, which was so fitting and the best reminder to enjoy life. It’s very easy to forget that! So to help you enjoy your weekend, I am not only sharing a link to that post, but I’m going to share the recipe we use for an easy pancake that you can easily change up to fit you food cravings. Happy Sunday!
Seriously Easy Pancakes: In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour, 3 tbsp, sugar, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. baking soda. Whisk together and set aside.
Melt 4 tbsp unsalted butter and let cool. In a measuring cup measure out 1 c. and 2 tbsp. milk (I use whole), 1 egg and whisk together. Stream in the melted butter and whisk together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Whisk together to combine. The mixture will still be a little lumpy, don’t over mix!
Add in anything you like. We used chocolate chips today, I’ll add vanilla, cinnamon, bananas, blueberries.
Heat your griddle to about 300/350 and cook until bubbles form, flip and let cook until cooked through. Enjoy!
