Make it Easy Mondays: Pancake/Waffle Recipe

Oy… it’s Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I know it can be difficult to go back to your normally scheduled program, especially after the holidays. You know what would make Mondays better? Let me tell you. These pancakes!!

As a mom, I’m always thinking of ways to simplify my life whether it be cooking, cleaning or organizing. This can be a helpful tip for everyone whether you’re working, going to school or a parent.

Today, I’m sharing our favorite pancake recipe. This is a staple in our pantry because we eat them so regularly. Every weekend, Jimmy cooks us breakfast and it’s always pancakes or waffles with a side of grits, eggs and/or sausage. #mrfancypants I’ve tried a plethora of pancake and waffle recipes and this one takes the (pan)cake. I originally found this recipe here. I use this to simplify breakfast time by making at least 2 or more batches at one time. We usually eat one batch of pancakes for breakfast and then I store the leftovers for the kids to eat the rest of the week. This recipe also makes wonderful waffles! I love a good crispy waffle on the outside and soft in the middle. If you decide to store them, make sure to cook them a little underdone because they will dry out when you reheat them later. You definitely don’t want to eat dry, hard waffles.

You only need these 9 ingredients! I know my vinegar is huge. #costco

Fluffy Pancake/Waffle Mix recipe (serves 3-4 people)

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup milk + 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp melted butter

Combine the milk and vinegar mixture and set aside for about 3 minutes as it sours. This is essentially buttermilk. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk the egg and butter into the buttermilk (milk + vinegar mixture) and then add it to the dry mix. Whisk until it becomes a fluffy mixture without any lumps. Heat a large pan over medium heat and cover with oil. Pour batter onto the skillet and flip over when bubbles start to appear on the surface.

This is really great for the weekdays when the kids go to school because they have to get up early. Between getting them ready and packing the rest of their lunches, it doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for preparing a healthy and hearty breakfast. All I have to do is take them out of the fridge and pop them in the toaster or microwave. Pour some syrup and you have a hot and yummy breakfast. I actually prefer mine heated on the panini grill and making a peanut butter and jelly pancake-wich with a fried egg in the middle. #donttknockittillyoutryit

Another tip is to make a container full of dry mix at one time and store it in a tupperware container. This saves us the time of preparing all the ingredients every single time we want to make pancakes. I stuck some labels so that we would have the dry/wet mix ratio visible and Jimmy can also make more of the dry mix if we are running low. All you have to do is take a lil more than a cup of the dry mix from the container and mix it with the 4 wet ingredients listed above. Easy Peasy!! This system has worked well in our household. Try it out and see if it works for you! I know I labeled them “Pancakes from the Almighty.” That’s because if they don’t make you sing out, “Glory Hallelujah,” then you may have some serious issues. #justsayin
