Pancake Secrets


I like making pancakes from scratch. Like popcorn, they remind me of blank food canvases. A few years ago I was gifted the cookbook, “CakeLove In the Morning” by Warren Brown. Everytime I open it up I add a little something different to the batter to make it more interesting.

This morning we added vanilla and cinnamon, along with chocolate chips and bananas.


1 C. Milk
1/4 C. Lemon juice
1 Egg
1 C. All purpose flour
3 Tbs. Sugar
21/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1tsp. Vanilla extract
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 banana sliced
1/8 C. Chocolate chips

1. Mix lemon juice and milk in a glass measuring cup, let sit for 5 min. After 5 min add egg and vanilla. Mix together, breaking yoke.
2. In a mixing bowl, mix remaining ingredients together.
3. Add liquid to liquid ingredients to dry, mix together – but don’t over mix. Allow to sit for 5 minutes while griddle warms up.
4. Make pancakes as you normally would, on a griddle.
