The BEST Pancakes

We love breakfast.  Specifically pancakes.  And pancakes is my backup dinner.  When Dad isn't going to be home for dinner, we have pancakes.  When I can't think of anything to make for dinner, we have pancakes.  It's all about pancakes.  This is the recipe I use for pancakes.  I stole it from my sister, Stehanie.  They're easy to whip up and it makes enough pancakes for our family of four plus some.  

1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
pinch of salt
2 tsp. baking powder
heaping 1/2 T of sugar
1 cup flour

Mix all ingredients together.

 Pour onto heated griddle or pan...
...okay you know how to make pancakes.
Any leftover pancake mix can be stored in the fridge for only 24 hours.  Have pancakes again for breakfast :)

We also love homemade syrup.  You might like it but are afraid to make it.  It's cake.  Buy a box of Maple flavoring - it lasts forever!

1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring

Boil 1 cup water.  Add 2 cups sugar.  Stir in.  Once the sugar dissolves, remove saucepan from heat.  Stri in 1/2 tsp maple.  Stir.  The syrup is ready!  The syrup we don't use I just put into a Tupperware and stick it in the fridge.  Unlike the pancakes, the syrup can last forever.


  1. We always made our own syrup growing up. I didn't even know you could buy for years!

  2. I have had these pancakes and I'm not lying when I say they are some of the best I've ever had! So happy you posted this, Tiff!
