Who Wants Breakfast?

I've said this to you guys before, but I really don't care for breakfast. These days I absolutely have to eat something in the morning to avoid feeling sick for the rest of the day. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

The inspiration for these pancakes came from an old high school friend, Jill. She was telling me when she was pregnant with her son, she couldn't stop eating breakfast. Now again, me not being a fan of breakfast, I couldn't even begin to think about what she meant. But since our talk, I have really wanted pancakes!!! Fluffy, buttery, light, and covered with syrup. Is there any other way to eat them? So I pulled out the griddle, grabbed some ingredients, and made myself a very happy girl. You can really thank Jill for this recipe and these pancakes. Without her, I may not have gotten back into the kitchen any time soon. These pancakes couldn't be easier. Try some this weekend, or if you're ambitious, have breakfast for dinner! :-)

What you will need:
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/4 cup 1% milk
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp granulated sugar (optional)
- a pinch of salt

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together in a bowl. The sugar is completely optional if you don't feel like using it. I like my pancakes to be a tad sweet, and it really compliments the copious amounts of syrup I'll add later. ;-) In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and butter. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix. 

Heat your griddle, or if you're like me, your pan, to medium-medium low. Cook each pancake till golden brown and puffy. These will sincerely be some of the best pancakes you'll ever have. Garnish with butter and lots of syrup. Add fresh blueberries or strawberries on top if you have them. Enjoy!
