Pancakes From Scratch


From: Well, I started with this recipe.  Then I tweaked it and made it SO much better!!

Ingredients:

1 cup of flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 cup of vanilla flavored soy milk or regular milk
2 Tbsp oil
handful of blueberries
1 banana peeled
butter

How to: 

Put everything except for the fruit in a large mixing bowl.  Blend, until it's smooth.  Then add the fruit and mash the fruit using a wire whisk.  I like it when the fruit isn't completely blended smoothly into the batter, but you can taste chunks of banana and blueberry in the pancake.

Be sure to put about a teaspoon of butter (or butter substitute) in ahead of the batter when cooking it in the griddle or hot skillet.  It makes the edges crispy and buttery.

Serve and eat immediately.  They won't last long!  Yummm!!!

Side notes:

The vanilla flavored soy milk is the key ingredient here.  It just gives the entire pancake the most amazing slightly sweet flavor that is just to die for!  Scrumptious.
