Vanilla pancakes!

My big boy had pancakes, and Santa visit his school yesterday, which meant, he wanted to repeat it for our Sundays' breakfast. Went to the store as soon as they were up, grabbed some turkey sausages, and vanilla for pancakes. Needless to say, it was gone in minutes.

What you need: Makes 12-14 pancakes; Prep time: 15 minutes

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp white sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
To serve:
Your choice of pancake syrup
Butter
 

Lightly whisk the egg, melted butter and milk in a bowl until fluffy.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the egg mixture; mix until smooth. Add in the vanilla and incorporate it well.


Heat a lightly greased griddle or pan over medium heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. 

Cook to a golden brown on both sides and serve hot, with a little butter and syrup of your choice. The aroma of vanilla pancakes and smoking sausages, yummy!
