Breakfast: More Involved
On Sunday mornings I like nothing more than having a leisurely breakfast for our whole family, even if I have to prepare it! I also like to invite friends for a late breakfast, works well with the timing for families with young kids and babies. Pancakes are always part of the menu.
My favorite ones recently include:
- Charlie Ayers Fluffy Soy Pancakes
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup of soy flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tbsp unrefined granulated sugar
- 2 eggs separated
- 1-1/4 cups milk
- 3 tbsp butter melted
- Canola oil
- When I do not have a half hour I have tried to use mixes with good results.
- Blue Bird Grain Farms: Emmer pancake mix - if you want to really expose your children to how different grains can taste, this is a lovely mix to try.
- Bob's Red Mill: 7 grain, 10 grain, buckwheat, high-fiber pancake mix. I discovered Bob's Red Mill gluten-free mixes when my son was sensitive to wheat, and I have tried many of the mixes and the recipes on the back.
- Kodiak Cakes Flapjack Mix
Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt into a bowl. Beat the sugar and egg yolks together until thick and pale, gradually whisk in the milk and melted butter, and then the flour, cover and let stand for 30 min. (involved, I know). Beat the egg whites until stiff, gently fold into the batter. Heat a little oil in the skillet, then add about 2 tbsp of the batter. Cook over medium heat.
Of course if the above seems too involved, you can find quick fixes for boxed pancake mix at The Sneaky Chef.
