who needs bisquick?

Yes, we've been known to keep Bisquick in the house. (I also eat frozen chicken pot pies and mac 'n cheese from a box. What of it?) The biscuits it makes aren't great, but it's nice to have as a pancake mix.

Anyway, Kaytie wanted some pancakes one recent morning, but we were out of Bisquick. No problem, I thought. I can make up some pancakes. And so I did. They were a little too sweet, though that worked in our favor, as we were out of syrup.

While Tyler and Han were in town for my birthday this weekend (Kaytie let me jump out of a plane!), we invited them over for breakfast, and I tweaked my recipe. Here's the final product.

(makes about 18 3-inch pancakes)

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups milk

Mix all the ingredients together.

Use a 1/3-cup measure to scoop the batter onto a hot pan (over medium heat). After about a minute, when bubbles form in the top, flip the pancake.
Give the pancake about 30 seconds to brown before taking it off the griddle.

Serve hot with lots of butter and syrup.
