Sunday Morning Pancakes

My kiddos love pancakes. Every Saturday or Sunday morning we have pancakes; it makes the weekend even more special. From scratch pancakes aren't hard to make and you can have them ready in a flash. The pancakes below are easy to make and I modify them with chocolate chips, cinnamon, or fresh blueberries: just depends on what you are in the mood for that morning. 

Adapted From: Better Home and Garden: New Cook Book

  • Dry Ingredients 
    • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup of brown sugar (or white sugar)
    • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Wet Ingredients 
    • 1 cup of milk 
    • 1/3 cup of applesauce (or 2 tablespoons of oil)
    • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional) 
First, mix your dry ingredients in one bowl. Then mix the wet ingredients in another bowl. After both mixtures are well combined; add in the cinnamon if you would like. Get your skillet and put you burner on medium heat. Wait until the skillet is hot before putting the cooking spray on the skillet. I test by putting a drop of water on the skillet; if it sizzles, it is ready. Once, you have the cooking spray on the skillet start putting the pancake batter in the skillet. I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to dish out the batter into medium sized pancakes. Let the batter cook until bubbles appear on the upside; then flip. Cook for another two minutes or three and then the pancake should be ready to go. This recipe will make around 12 medium pancakes. Enjoy!

Mix both dry ingredients and wet ingredients together. Add a bit of
cinnamon here if you like to.

Yum! Fluffy panackes! 
Stack o pancakes!! 

The syrup is from Kroger: Cinnamon Maple; which is the main reason
I put cinnamon in the pancakes. They were delightful!


  1. Mmm these pancakes look so fluffy and delicious -- I like cinnamon in mine too!

  2. She makes the Best Pancakes!! She also makes some with "Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix" that are fabulous!! These do make the weekend more special. Our 4 y/o "Pickle" usually gets out of bed on the weekends asking if "Mommy make me Pancakes". (she really made them for me,...but I don't tell him that)
