Recipe: Pancakes – So Easy A Guy Can Do It!

 

by Tammy Taylor

Several years ago I discovered a recipe for homemade pancakes (a LONG time ago, I don’t remember where) and I was surprised at how easy it was to whip up. I had always used a box mix before when I made pancakes and really never thought about it otherwise.   But I enjoy mixing up more things for myself these days so this is the only way I make pancakes now.

Recently Rancher Man asked what I wanted for a special breakfast-in-bed occasion and without hesitation I piped up “PANCAKES!”  Now my man is the king of the grill and he knows his way around a kitchen pretty well too, but the look on his face made me smile.  “Don’t worry” I assured him “My recipe for pancakes is E-A-S-Y!”

When the pancakes were served the next morning he agreed the recipe was very straightforward and suggested I share the recipe with y’all using the title “So Easy A Guy Can Do It”  LOL.  So no offense to you kitchen-capable fellas out there, just pacifying the man in my life with the title!

These pancakes always come out light and fluffy, and I love them.  RancherMan used a preparation method I’m very fond of – Pre-Mixing.  He premixed all the dry ingredients the night before and made a note to add 1-1/4 cup milk, 1 egg and 3 tablespoons of melted butter when mixing them up.  That way breakfast the next morning was a snap.  Aren’t they lovely?

Oh, and don’t act like you’re not insanely jealous of this beautifully-seasoned double-burner sized cast-iron griddle we stumbled upon at a garage sale for $5!  (grin)

If you want to premix the dry ingredients and make note of the wet ingredients to add during final preparation, go for it! You’ve just created your very own inexpensive convenience packet for delicious homemade pancakes that can be ready just as fast (if not faster) than those purchased pre-made packets!

      And they’re so easy to make, Chavonne. As a matter of fact they’re so easy to make that RancherMan always makes the pancakes as long as I always make the maple-flavored syrup. ~TMH~

    Yum! I love from-scratch pancakes. I also keep a bag of frozen blueberries in the freeze to add while they’re cooking. 😉 Stopping by from the Homestead Blog Hop.

    How many pancakes can you get from your recipe? My kids love eating pancakes I we make them a lot. I used to use boxed pancake mix, but have been making our own for quite some time now. Homemade is always better and fluffier.

      Erlene, I’ve never counted them, but it makes enough for me to gobble all I want, RancherMan to fill his manly appetite and a few left over for us. ~TMR~

    You got me to laughing when I read your title; ‘Pancakes – So Easy A Guy Can Do It.’ :} Oh, my dear, you do not know my man. Even if he where to follow the recipe, he can still screw it up in some way shape or form. I love pancakes as well as I do waffles plus I like mixing up dry ingredients to use for later use no matter what it is. Having homemade maple syrup………just can’t be beat. Nothing compares to homemade, not even IHOP. Enjoy your holiday weekend. We had a nice shower of rain early morning yesterday (around 5am) but then turned really humid later on

      LOL Colleen. Ya know, for some people cooking is just not gonna happen. I agree with you though, nothing compares to homemade. Oh, and I’m secretly jealous of your nice shower yesterday morning – we got spritzes only. And the chances of rain for today have been dissolved so… ~TMR~

    I have an easy 7 grain pancake mix recipe I keep handy for pancakes anytime. It is a versatile recipe because it uses any dairy product you have on hand (milk, buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, even soy or almond milk). I have even used fruited yogurt with it. I’ll dig out my recipe if you like.

      That’s awesome Shirley – 1962! I guess recipes with great results never change… I think also it’s proof that recipes don’t need to be complicated to be a winner. ~TMR~

    I just started making my own pancake mix and I will never go back to the boxed mix. I make the big batch and keep it in a tupperware container so that I am always ready to mix up a batch- breakfast, lunch or dinner. The leftovers are great in the freezer for a quick breakfast treat anytime!! My son loves them so I have to make extra to last the week but they don’t usually because he wants to eat them all the time.

      Alison, you KNOW how much I’m loving the ‘cook-once-eat-twice’ thing! Occasionally we have leftover pancakes as well but RancherMan loves to snack on them – so more often than not we have no leftovers to freeze. I’m planning pancakes for supper sometime this week, one of my favorite dinner options. 🙂 ~TMR~
