Pancakes! Sweet, Sweet Pancakes!

Pancakes.  Stacks and stacks of pancakes.  When we lived in Boston, it was the go-to breakfast EVERY Sunday morning.  Then my griddle, well it died.  And for some reason, I stopped making them.  I did buy a new griddle.  But I made other things on it~like French Toast~the other family favorite.  After countless delicious delights I made on that griddle, it died too.  The french toast and pancake breakfasts came to a screeching halt.  No more pancakes.  No more french toast.  That is until two weeks ago when I broke down and bought a new griddle with a Target gift card my smart husband gave me for Mother's Day this year.  Yes, this man of mine, knows the way to a woman's heart.  Through Target!!

So for the past two weeks, we've made Pancakes every weekend. I've discovered something in the process.  Pancakes are really yummy!  Really. Really. Yummy.  The first batch of pancakes were made from a delicious mix from Lehi Roller Mills.  Blueberry.  Mmmm...They were so very good. I should thank my big brother, Chris, as his family is the one who gave it to us for Christmas last year. You can find an array of delicious mixes from Lehi Roller Mills here: http://www.lehirollermill.com/

However, this past weekend, I used my favorite recipe.  The pancakes come out perfectly. Everytime.  Fluffy.  Light.  Subtly sweet.  Yep.  We are going to make pancakes every weekend until my sweet new griddle dies. Again.  

Ultimate Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pancakes

2 Cups Bisquick
1 Cup Milk
1 T. Sugar
2 T. Lemon Juice
2 t. Baking Powder
2 Eggs

1.  Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375; grease with cooking spray.

2.  Stir all ingredients together until blended. Pour batter onto griddle (I use a 1/4 cup for each--makes a nice sized pancake).  

3.  Cook until edges are dry.  Turn; cook until golden.  

PS:  This is a great recipe.  But too small for my family of 5, so I have to double it.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  And pancakes inevitably make it special. For everyone.  One more thing about pancakes.  Fortunately they aren't just a breakfast food.  You can eat them for breakfast. Lunch. Or dinner.  We love a sweet pancake dinner at our house too. 'Cause breakfast for dinner, is always fun.

In the Dart house we probably have pancakes for dinner or breakfast at least once a week. I once again have found a gem on the Pioneer Woman website for pancakes. Try it I swear you'll love it.
