Pancakes hold a special place in my heart because they're Jeremy's favorite breakfast. Growing up my in my family, when it was our birthday the rest of the family would wake up early and make us breakfast in bed. Every year. No matter what. Even if you had to be awake at 5 am, everyone would get up first to make you whatever breakfast you had requested. When Jeremy and I got engaged my sisters gave him heck about him having to continue the tradition. He's kind of a contrarian so he argued with them and made it seem like he didn't want to. But truth be told he's loved carrying it on. And I've loved making breakfast in bed for him too. It's so much fun. I really just love birthdays in general. Celebrating someone you love, giving them gifts, feeding them yummy food, and making them feel loved. It's great. And today is Jeremy's birthday so pancakes for breakfast it is! In real life I'll actually make him hash browns, eggs and bacon too. But this post is about pancakes so I left them out. But don't worry, you don't have to wait for someones birthday to make these pancakes. Let's make these crispy fluffy pancakes together...
Begin by adding your dry ingredients to a bowl.
1 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp salt and 3 1/2 tsp baking soda
Whisk it all together
Get 1 1/4 cups whole milk, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla and 3 tbsp melted butter
Whisk them together
Whisk your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients. Whisk until just combined. It should be thick and a little lumpy, but no dry bits.
Let the batter rest while you heat up a griddle to 350, or a cast iron to med-high heat.
When your pan is hot spread some butter all over.
Then pour on the batter using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.
You'll know when to flip when the tops get bubbly and the edges look crispy
Flip 'em and let cook on the other sides until the edges get brown.
This recipe makes 10 pancakes.
Stack them up and top them with butter and maple syrup.
