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.

~FLUFFY PANCAKES~

dry ingredients

1 1/4 cups plain flour

1/4 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

a pinch of salt

 

liquid ingredients

1 1/4 cups milk

1/4 cups oil or melted butter

1 egg

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.
