Menu Board Monday- Edition #5- In A Pinch Pancakes

I love BREAKFAST! For breakfast....for lunch....for brunch.... for dinner, pretty much whenever!  I just LOVE breakfast food! I think some reasons I make breakfast for dinner as often as I do (it's on my Menu Board 4 times this month) are because it's fast and it's cheap, and everyone (even the picky one) will eat it! And really, breakfast isn't always the same thing! You can make breakfast casseroles, different breakfast meats like sausage, bacon or ham.. german pancakes, crepes, waffles or these yummy pancakes!  I have made these pancakes my whole married life.  It's such a simple recipe and I always have all the ingredients on hand! And they are so nice and fluffy! Sometimes I'll add chocolate chips for the kids, or add a few blueberries for myself.  You can add whatever you please! Next time I'm adding peaches and cinnamon.  They're good that way too! :) So mix 'em up and make them your own!

In A Pinch Pancakes
From Cupboard to Cupboard

2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
5 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

In a bowl, mix ingredients just enough to moisten dry ingredients.  Mixture will be thick and lumpy.  You can add a little milk to thin it out if you prefer.  Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat and lightly grease.  Cook on a hot greased griddle on med-low heat.  Flip when bubbles break on the surface and the edges begin to dry.  Makes 15-18 pancakes...

Happy Cooking!
