F is for Friday-Food again!

F is for Friday
Friday is basically a free for all.  I plan on posting about things like Food, Fitness, Family, Fun, Festivities, etc.  It doesn't have to be about "F" things, but look forward to me doing my best to make (ridiculous) links to the letter F. Your F can be different than mine though!

Proverbs 17:22
A joyful heart is good medicine.

Pancakes! A favorite here at our house. We don't just have them for breakfast (though we did today), we can eat them for lunch or dinner too.

I found this recipe online, somewhere, a few years ago and have adapted it over time to be exactly what we really like.

*1 1/2c of flour (we are working our way towards all whole wheat, but for now we're up to 1 1/4 whole wheat and 1/4 unbleached ap flour)
*1 1/2c of milk
*1 egg
*1Tb softened butter
*1/2c pumpkin puree (100% unsweetened) or 1/2c sweet potato pureed/mash
(when we use either of these, we use less milk)
*3 1/2tsp baking powder (or now with my corn issues we use 1 3/4tsp baking soda + 7/8tsp cream of tartar)
*1/2tsp salt
*1/4tsp cinnamon
*1/8tsp nutmeg

*You can also add other things, like today we added 1 1/2Tb of golden flax seeds.

Mix it all together (it'll be thick, I've found the thinner it is, the longer it takes to cook...well, ok, when I use too much milk, it never finishes cooking, just awful).

Use a 1/4c measuring cup to put it on the griddle (I like to butter each spot before dropping the batter). The thicker batter never really does the "bubble" thing, so just check after a few minutes to see if the bottom is golden brown and then flip.

We get 12-15 pancakes depending on the day.
