A few weeks ago, Kyle and I went a visited some friends of ours from church. Their daughter, Juliann, makes these special pancakes that are really good. I asked for the recipe and as her mom started to let me in on the secret she got "sushed" from Juliann to not give it away. Juliann finally gave in when I agreed to let everyone know it was her Special Pancake recipe. I obliged. They are special and very tasty.
The recipe starts with 1 1/2 cups of pancake mix. The homemade pancake mix recipe that their family uses is:
Mix together 5 cups white flour, 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup cornmeal, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. baking powder, and 2 tsp. salt.
To make traditional pancakes, you mix 1 1/2 cups of the pancake mix above, 2 eggs, and 1 1/4 cups of milk (this makes a pretty thin and flat pancake (which I love), but if you want a thicker pancake, reduce the milk).
Now... on to the Special part!
You add, in no certain amount, some vanilla extract and cinnamon. I loved seeing her handwritten recipe on a paper towel that said there was no certain amount to the vanilla and cinnamon - so cute. So for mine I added a splash of vanilla and a few shakes of cinnamon.
Here are some action shots of the pancakes sizzling:
The finished product. So good! I added a few chocolate chips to a couple and those were good too. Kyle also loved them which is a plus. I will definitely be making these babies again. Thanks Juliann!!!
