I Enjoy Pancakes

September 16, 2013

So I've been on this frontier cooking kick! More on that in a different post coming soon. Just wanted to let you know a couple of things. I can eat a lot of pancakes. Like maybe I could be in some sort of flapjack competition.

I love pancakes so very very much.

And I have tried many many homemade recipes that are awesome, and many many box mixes. Most of those are not so awesome. But I tried these Kodiak pancakes,

(no, this is not a sponsored post, but can I just digress for a moment and say that I would write the bestest sponsored posts in the world because the whole point of my blog is to convince you all that the books and recipes I'm showing you are AWESOME, plus I went to law school, so if you didn't agree, I would just keep telling you how wrong you were in not agreeing with me)

and even though this mix is whole wheat flour and oat flour.....this is the best box pancake mix I've tried in years. Even though it has dry milk powder in the mix, and you're supposed to just add water, I did a couple of things to make it more awesome.

I added 1 whole egg and a cup of buttermilk. And these pancakes were amazing!! Light! Not heavy! Tender! (from the buttermilk) But not so.....all white flour-y, which I kind of can't really eat anymore, because it just tastes too blah.

Now that it's getting to be fall, I want to have them again with some kind of apple cider syrup.

I really enjoy my pancakes SO MUCH, and that's why I went to the effort of taking pix and doing a little post about them. I love pancakes that much.

I really like them in stacks these days, and then I cut them into quarters, right across the middle, and pour syrup into the middle of the stack. I read that somewhere online, and thought it was a cool idea.

(for the rest of the fall, I might pretend that this is a food blog. just fyi. well probably not really, but i really do like to discuss food.)

  1. Mmmmmmm... pancakes...

    I love all breakfast items that involve maple syrup (not the fake stuff). Pancakes. Waffles. French toast. Yummy yum yummy. Here's my favorite pancake recipe: http://realmomkitchen.com/1425/fluffy-buttermilk-pancakes/

    Now I wish I had some syrup so I could make some pancakes. Boo. :(

    2. You're welcome! They really do turn out fluffier than any other recipe I've tried. It's been my go-to recipe for quite some time now. :) xoxo

    3. you know, I seem to recall you pinning a pancake recipe on Pinterest awhile ago, and saying that you were going to try it and/or that it was very good. I think it was this!

  2. Pancakes are awesome. Those look especially tasty. I like making a big batch to freeze. Pop them in the toaster and it's an easy before-school breakfast. (Also easy to hold in car if mommy is running late!)

  3. I am not crazy about pancakes but your pictures managed to make me think about eating them... which probably means you did a good job there :p My hubby loves pancakes! I probably cooked the worst pancakes ever so we usually end up at the restaurant just so he can have his pancake fix! I just don't know if I am just a naturally bad cook or I have the wrong recipe!

    1. Anything that lets you drop in fruits and choc chips is an excellent food I say :)
