Yesterday the man of the house went shopping and brought back some fruit. So i woke up this morning thinking that I would be healthy and eat a pear for breakfast. Unfortunately it was hands down the worst pear I’ve ever eaten. I was dry and sawdusty and totaly inedible.However, little makes me sadder then throwing away food so sliced them up and poured maple syrup on top and cooked it on medium heat until the pears were just about to fall apart and the syrup is thick. The fruit gets mapley and the maple gets fruity and its super delicious. If you forget about the pears for a little bit then m’dears they are maple caramelized pears and it was completely on purpose. Now you can do all sorts of things with this maply fruity goodness but I like it best on pancakes.
So my healthy breakfast went out the window.
There are a lot of blogs out there saying that they have the best ever recipe for pancakes and as such I won’t pretend that I do. BUT these are the best pancakes I’ve ever had. They’re very very moist and they’re very light and fluffy and they soak up syrup like a sponge. Which is very important. So here it is,
A Very Good Pancake Recipe
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/4cup Flour
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder

(If you don’t have any sour cream you can just omit it and add 1/4 cup extrfa milk and the juice of half a lemon)
· Mix the dry ingredients
· Mix the wet ingredients
· Mix together until just combined, some lumps are okay.
· Fry in canola oil until puffy and golden and delicious!
