We ran out of milk so being resourceful!

We ran out of milk so technically this isn’t drinking with breakfast. Technically I’m just making do the best I can.

Chef Schultzter’s Granny Cameron Pancakes

Granny Cameron PancakesThis pancake recipe comes from Patricia’s grandmother on her father’s side. They’re fluffy and light and go really well with Maple Syrup.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups flour (can use whole wheat)
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt (optional)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter or shortening
  • ¼ tsp vanilla (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Make sure the mix is consistent and there are no lumps
  3. Heat the pan to a medium heat
  4. Pour large drops into a non-stick or greased frying pan
  5. Turn once during frying so both sides are golden

Serving

You can keep the pancakes warm in the oven while cooking them and then serve everyone at the same time. Garnish with maple syrup, cinnamon, or cake sprinkles!
And if you don’t finish the whole batch this breakfast, then put the left-overs into a freezer bag and save for another day. Just pop them in the toaster and they’re ready in no time.

  4. mix the egg, milk, & spices

  7. cover with half the leeks, peppers, bacon, & cheese
  8. put a single layer of bread, ditto
  9. put the rest of the leeks, peppers, bacon, & cheese
  10. slowly pour the egg & milk mixture into the pyrex starting from middle and moving outwards as necessary to get even coverage
