Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Pancakes

Made pancakes from scratch this morning for the first time.  (I wasn’t planning on doing that, but when I went to get the pancake mix out of my pantry, there was none.  Surprise!  I was already set on pancakes though, and so was Matt.)

I started a basic pancake recipe from the bible of cooking: Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book.

I added a few of my own things.

  • Start by combining 1 & 3/4 cups flour with 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Add 1 & 1/2 cups milk (I used skim), 1 egg, and 3 tablespoons oil.
  • Whisk to combine.
  • I then added a splash of vanilla extract, some cinnamon, and a little brown sugar.
  • Whisk to combine the new ingredients.

  • Preheat a griddle and coat with butter.
  • Add enough batter to make 4 medium sized pancakes.

  • Cook until bubbles start forming in the middle (about 5 minutes).  Then flip.

When your pancakes look like this, flip:

  • Cook about 4 more minutes on the other side.

Serve with maple syrup.  Enjoy!

Note: This recipe made more than enough batter.  I made 8 medium pancakes and still had batter leftover.  I refrigerated it.  Guess what’s for breakfast tomorrow!  😉
