In my quest to avoid preservatives and partially hydrodgenated oils in boxed pancake mix, I found this recipe for pancakes, tweaked it a little and it is now our family’s favorite pancake recipe. The recipe uses a substitution for buttermilk so all the ingredients are already in my pantry. I drop in some blueberries in about half the pancakes, Curious George style. We have an egg allergy in our extended family so I was also pleased to discover that these pancakes taste just as good when I omit the egg. Granted, they are not as fluffy, but shhh, don’t tell them – my family couldn’t tell the difference.
I now make these once every couple of weeks. The leftovers are easy to toast in the toaster oven the next morning for a quick weekday breakfast. With Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), my joints are most stiff and painful in the morning so making breakfast is hard for me to do many days. I need breakfasts that taste just as good reheated so my boys can have a good breakfast despite my limitations.
So, without further ado, here’s our family’s favorite pancake recipe…
What does your family enjoy for quick weekday breakfasts? How do you like your pancakes? I love mine with fresh blueberries or strawberries and pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
