PANCAKES!

This morning, I craved pancakes.
Unfortunately, we had neither mix nor syrup. (Oh Aunt Jemima, wherefore art thou?!)

So, logically, I made my own.

The syrup was okay, and it'll do, but I still prefer my not-even-close-to-maple syrup. :P

Of course, I didn't have half the ingredients (exaggerating, I am), so I improvised. (It's like, what I do)





Pancake Syrup, the way the recipe was written:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of corn syrup
1 cup of water
1 tsp of vanilla

Pancake Syrup, the way I did it:
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of light corn syrup
1/4 cup of dark corn syrup
1/4 cup of molasses
1 cup of water
1 tsp of vanilla.


I never have brown sugar. Too lazy for it...but I always have molasses to take its place XD

Anyhoo, boil it all for 3 minutes or so, bottle/jar/whatever it, and stick it in the fridge. Easy peasy.

Pancakes, the way the recipe was written:
2 cups of flour
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 cups of buttermilk
1/4 cup of melted unsalted butter

Pancakes, the way I did it:
2 cups of flour
1/4 cup of powdered sugar (I ran out of granulated, lol!)
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup of sour cream (Like I EVER have buttermilk)
1 cup of water (you could also use regular milk, but I only had like a 1/3 of a cup left) (oh yeah, mix the sour cream and water together, if you do it my way)
1/4 cup of canola oil (...Uh. I just didn't feel like melting butter XD)


You see, I never have anything I need...but improvisation is fun...it teaches you why you have to use certain ingredients, or what you can safely substitute when in a bind.

Sift all the dry ingredients together. Beat eggs and buttermilk (or sourcream/water :P ) together. Add melted butter (or oil) to the eggs. (or just do what I did and dump it all in with the dry stuff. My laziness knows no bounds, especially at 6 in the morning.) Combine! Lumpy batters are goooood. If you mix until it's smooth, you'll have icky hockey puck pancakes. (Okay, not really, but they won't be as good). Heat up a pan (medium heat) and melt some butter or put some cooking spray in it. Pour batter. (It's up to you how big to make them...I like tiny pancakes so that I don't have to cut them). Cook until they start to bubble, then flip them. I butter the pan before each pancake, but if you have your own way, don't listen to me, and do it your way :P
EAT.
