Pancake perfection


There is nothing better than waking up early on a Sunday morning, heading straight to the kitchen, all sleepy eyed while still in pajamas, throwing on an apron, and whipping up some pancakes. All pancakes should be made and eaten while still in pajamas, really.
This particular Sunday I was with my mini helper, A. We had a late night story time slumber party the night before while her mom and dad were out of town. Pancakes were prerequisite to our busy day spent swimming in the pool.


The pancakes came out perfect.
Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  •  2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbs canola oil 
  • 1 1/2 c soy milk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 

 Combine all ingredients
 Stir until all the lumps are gone. My mini helper, A, is great at getting all the lumps out.
 Of course we had to use cute cutouts for special shaped pancakes.
Just make sure you spray the cutter with oil to avoid sticking.  Flip when top starts to bubble.
  
Always be generous with the maple syrup 
Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
  
These little cuties were crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. 
Our breakfast was complete and healthy, 3 pancakes, a side of fruit, orange juice for my mini helper, coffee for me. 

 
We made a mess!

Made with Love, 
Emily
