Breakfast for dinner

Once again we headed over to Planet Organic this evening after a stopover at Curves. Tonight Zed volunteered to make pancakes for dinner, so we picked up eggs and milk (and a gingerbread man to share... it was very good) and grabbed the bus home.

Zed's pancake recipe always turns out more like crepes. The origins of this recipe are with Zed's mom in Montreal, and she insists they should be fluffy but we are not sure why they repeatedly turn out crepe like when we make them. Either way, they taste great. This evening I topped mine with pomegranate seeds and maple syrup, and Zed with maple syrup only.

The following recipe makes about 6 pancakes.

In a small bowl, mix these ingredients in the following order:

1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Granulated Sugar
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup of flour (whole wheat or white)

Mix the above well, then add:

2/3 cup of milk
3 large eggs
1 tsp of melted butter

Mix the ingredients together until smooth. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a cast iron skillet (or other pan of choice... we use a non-stick pan). Drop a spoonful of mixture into the pan. When the top begins to bubble, it's time to flip it over. Serve with Maple Syrup, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, strawberries or whatever tickles your fancy.

Recipe credits go to Zed's Mom.
