I woke up this morning slightly hungover…
Although our New Years Eve was laid back, we had a good one! We made tons of snacks, played cards, watched movies and had yummy drinks. In case you were curious, champagne + ginger vodka + lemon twist = success. Really delicious.
I knew I needed some yummy breakfast after having a few cocktails last night, and decided to make myself some pancakes. Here’s what you’ll need.
3 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt
Take your eggs and crack them into a large mixing bowl.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt, combine with a whisk. Whisk in the milk and yogurt.
I then added a secret ingredient.
This stuff is amazing. I got it for Christmas, and it is like someone seeded approximately 1,000 vanilla beans for you and put them in a jar. You know how when you put a vanilla bean in something, the taste is delicious and much better than vanilla extract? And it has those beautiful little specks that you can only get from a vanilla bean? This has those little black specks.
I just put a dollop of this in my batter. It’s not necessary, but I recommend clicking on that link and treating yourself to some.
Put a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Once hot, spray with non-stick spray and pour half of a cup of batter for each pancake.
You can do more than one at a time if you have a bigger non-stick pan than I do. But this is the only one I own….so, don’t make fun of me.
I learned this little trick a long time ago: do you not know when to turn your pancake? I used to not know either. Then, in middle school, my friend Carly taught me that when you see little bubbles on the top of your pancake that’s when you flip!
I am an awful flipper. I think it’s partially because our pan is so small, and partially because I suck.
I made myself a stack of four and poured on some syrup.
These may not be the prettiest pancakes, but MAN were they good!
The yogurt is a great addition. They were creamy and fluffy and the perfect New Years Day breakfast!
