Making Pancakes

Nikki Fioretti


This is only the second time I have been away from my family on Easter. I planned on going home Easter weekend, but due to COVID-19, my plans had changed.
Last year we went to brunch on Easter morning which is what we were planning on doing again this year. Instead I made my own brunch of scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, and of course, pancakes! This was a much heavier breakfast than what I normally eat, but I figured I deserved this.
Believe it or not this is the first time I have ever made pancakes from scratch!
I am hoping to make this recipe again in the future and test out different types of flour!
I used a recipe that I found on Pinterest which called for 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, ½ tablespoon of sugar, ½ teaspoon of salt, 1 large egg, ¾ cup of milk, ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of melted butter.  The first step was to mix the dry ingredients together, and to mix the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.  Once both were mixed, I poured the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mixed them together.  Next I melted butter on a pan and added a few ladles of batter into the pan on medium heat.  In less than 10 minutes, I had pancakes that really hit the spot!

Unfortunately, I do not have the Pinterest link to provide.
