Samoan Pancakes

18 Aug

There are so many fun versions of pancakes! I love me a good ol’ fashioned flap jack, but breakfast is so much more exciting when you try something a little different. This recipe is another from my grandma’s stash. They lived in Tonga and Hawaii for most of my mom’s life, so I trust Grandma’s islander recipes! And my kids love that they can eat these pancakes with their fingers. 🙂

Fluffy Pancakes

22 Jan

Mmmm…pancakes. We like to go the creative route on really special mornings and make ‘animal’ pancakes. I’m pretty good at it, if I do say so myself. There is always that little twinge of guilt when you cut of the head of your horse or turtle, but if it’s a good pancake, you get over the grief real quick.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup milk

2 Tbsp white vinegar (combined with milk and sit for 10 min to sour)

1 cup flour

2-3 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

2 Tbsp melted butter

1 tsp vanilla

Combine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl for 10 minutes to sour. Set aside. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk the soured milk, egg, vanilla, and melted  butter together. Pour into the dry ingredients and whisk until most of the lumps are gone, but do not over mix. The batter will be thick. Let the batter sit undisturbed for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you will see bubbles in the batter – DO NOT STIR AGAIN.

Gently dip out 1/2 cup batter and place on a buttered grill or frying pan. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake and then flip and brown the other side.
