Several years ago I discovered a recipe for homemade pancakes. (a LONG time ago, I don’t remember where) Boy was I was surprised at how easy it was to whip up. I’d always used a box mix before when I made pancakes. To be honest I 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. 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. He 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!
RancherMan Makes Pancakes
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. Then he 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. And they can be ready just as fast (if not faster) than those purchased pre-made packets!
And not only will it be infinitely cheaper, but it’s comprised of ingredients you recognize and can pronounce. So give it a try, you won’t be sorry. Recipe from moi below!
