What would the weekend be without pancakes?
You won’t have to find out.
Also, I really needed these after the week I’ve had.
We had two snow storms.
30 cm’s on Sunday and THEN to top that off another 35 cm’s on Wednesday. It is the end of March! Where is the grass? (I don’t even want to get into the weather warnings for Saturday…Oh my goodness.)
Instead we have all been wading through knee deep (or more) snow all week.
It is not my ideal weather for this time of year. Not to mention I’m probably going to get cabin fever, because when you live in the city you can’t even enjoy the snow if it has to be there.
Also, it’s my march break and I couldn’t go anywhere for like four of those days.
They will right what is wrong, yes?
My Mum has the best recipe for pancakes ever, and this is a close imitation. It’s about the yogurt.
Yogurt + Pancakes is the real deal.
Let’s get started.
In a large bowl add flour, salt, and baking powder. Whisk until combined.
In a smaller bowl add egg, milk, yogurt, and oil. Whisk, and then pour into the dry ingredients and mix until it is lump free.
The batter should be ready to go now!
In a frying pan over medium heat drop enough batter to form pancakes. Cook until you can see bubbles coming up through the batter on top, flip!
Place on a plate and they are ready to eat.
Oh, and did I mention the salted caramel sauce?
It is super simple and to die for.
Brown sugar, butter, salt, and water. Bring to a boil and you’re ready to pour this over your fresh beautiful pancakes.
What are you waiting for?
P.s. – They are perfect for a birthday boy.
