Pancakes for Dinner

Sometimes we just like to have pancakes for dinner.......and it's usually when my husband, Mark, is out of town. However, he does enjoy them with us once in a while. :)
In case you'd like to try pancakes for dinner tonight, I thought I'd share my recipe with you from my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.

Combine 1 cup flour, 1 T sugar, 2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt.

In a separate bowl whisk together 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 2 T cooking oil, and I like to add a little vanilla.

Pour the liquid into the dry mixture bowl and stir until combined.

......and start making pancakes.....mmmm.

........and keep making them.....because your kids eat about 5 mine?

We like to eat our pancakes with butter and powdered sugar.....sometimes syrup and sometimes peanut butter with syrup. How do you like to eat your pancake?

Of course you can always add blueberries, cinnamon, chocolate chips, etc. to the batter (not all at once though...hee! Choose ONE! :) and make something special for your family! :D Enjoy!



  1. How do we like to eat pancakes?

    Well, we occasionally splurge a bit with whip cream and strawberries. The kids squirt the whip cream, but not before taking a pledge that has become a family tradition:

    I promise
    to stop squirting
    whenever Mom
    says STOP!

    BTW, that pledge works well for water gun fights, too!

  2. mmmm.....whip cream and strawberries.....that sounds good with just about anything! :D
    I could eat pancakes any way.....I like them! :))

  3. Sounds yummy! Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around to get to know you more. You have a delightful and scrumptious spot.


  4. Marilyn, that pledge is great! Mind if I 'borrow' it?
    We had pancakes for dinner last night. A fun tradition my mom got me into. But one thing I never understood is: If she let me have pancakes for dinner, why couldn't I have pizza for breakfast???
