when it rains, it pours
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR & VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYBODY~ share the love and money!
(err what why isn’t the exclamation mark red?)
once again, i’m stuck at home all on my lonesome, because i have a lot of homework. it’s raining again.
this morning, as i was frying pancakes/french toast, my sister started yelling at my brother (nothing unusual really) but she showed my why – a cut twenty-dollar bill. you know how kiddies get red envelopes with money for new year? yeah well the twenty dollar bill didn’t fit, so he cut the top off. and i think he also cut a ten dollar bill in half too.
here’s the pancake recipe i used. it makes really nice vanilla-y puffy pancakes like the ones you buy at supermarkets.
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
a pinch of salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cups oil or melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a measuring cup, combine liquid ingredients.
Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Preheat frying pan. When frying pan is hot enough, a drop of water will ‘dance’ and sizzle away.
With a good non-stick frying pan, you won’t have to use cooking spray. If not, use cooking spray or a small pat of butter.
Pour a soup ladle full of batter into the frying pan.
Flip when the top has bubbles and a half inch of the edge looks dry.
Cook’s Note: Variation – For extra fluffy pancakes, separate the egg and whip the white until soft peaks form. Buttermilk may also be used instead of milk – reduce baking powder to 1 1/2 teaspoons and 1/2 teaspoons soda. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, if desired.
