Recipe of the week

Have you ever been in the middle of making breakfast and realized you don't have any pancake mix in the house. Well that has happened to us a couple of times and lets face it, Sunday morning breakfast with out pancakes is just not the same at the deJong house. So one morning Russ asked me to jump on to my favorite recipe website and found a simple pancake recipe to use. You should have everything you need for this right in your cupboard/fridge (if you are short an egg go ask your kind neighbor to borrow one - you know who I'm talking about:) and plus this will save you a ton on pancake mix (this is my thrifty tip of the week as well :) so here it is:
1 1/2 c Flour
2-3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 egg
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/4 c milk

Mix dry ingredients together
Beat the egg with the milk and melted buter, beating to combine
Using a wooden spoon fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients to make a smooth batter without over mixing
Heat a greased griddle or pan, once hot pour a small amount of batter into pan, once bubbles start to appear it's time to turn the pancake.
Serve with your favorite syrup, peanut butter or jelly or have them with just plain old butter

**you can add fruit to the pancakes, my suggestion is to add the fruit right before you turn the pancake over**

Enjoy!

I LOVE homemade pancakes (not made with a mix)! My dad used to make them every weekend, and now my husband, Rick, does it. It's one of my favorite traditions. Home made is great too because, both my dad and Rick have tweaked the recipe over time to get the pancakes "just right." I did a whole blog about the pancake tradition once!

And it's way cheaper to make your own! Thanks for sharing!
