Hot Cakes on a Cool Day

22 Oct

In coming back from my trip, I brought few tokens or mementos, aside from a variety of Christmas tree ornaments (which are more cat-themed than I originally intended). One thing I did bring back, mostly for my husband, was bone fide 100% Maple Syrup from Canada.

And what does one do which such an exciting gift?

Pancakes, of course.

We don’t make pancakes too often, which means I don’t keep a mix around the house. A quick browse of the Internet led me to a pretty fantastic from scratch recipe. It wasn’t difficult to prepare, all the ingredients are in most people’s pantries, and the end result tasted delicious. A tip from me – a griddle makes for more even and pretty pancakes, but any large pan will suffice.

Next time you are lounging around on an autumn Sunday, might I recommend a plate of these?

    Yum! My maple spread got taken away and tossed in the trash at the airport and I almost cried. We don’t do pancakes either, but I was looking forward to spreading my schmear on crackers, bagels… my finger, bacon, Leila’s head. Whatever.

      I applaud your ability to put the schmear on the food first (though I see it quickly degrades – I don’t think Leila would approve your latter methods). My schmear eating attempts usually get interrupted by me shoving the spoonful of it directly into my mouth.
