I love pancakes. When I was a little girl I remember finding a recipe for pancakes in a old cookbook. The cookbook was grey and fraying around the edges, and I used the recipe so often that I eventually memorized it. I’ve adjusted the recipe a little over the years adding two key ingredients. I add a little bit of vanilla because yum, and some E-Z Gel because E-Z Gel helps to create a more tender pancake and makes it easy to freeze so you have pop up pancakes later! And with a New Year ahead of us having pancakes ready to go will help simplify your morning schedule and who doesn’t need a simpler morning?
Homemade Pancakes with E-Z Gel
2 cups flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder
3 Tablespoons E-Z Gel
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Combine dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate container combine wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix just to combine. Cook pancakes by the 1/3rd cup on a hot (350 degree) griddle, flipping once. Serve with Cornaby’s Gourmet Jams, Cornaby’s Fruit Syrups, Homemade Maple Syrup, or just eat as they are!
To Freeze: Arrange pancakes in layers separated with waxed paper in a gallon freezer bag. Freeze flat. Pop in the toaster to warm.
