I am learning the love of home made meals. I feel more accomplished and more like a mom should be. However, it’s hard. My kids only eat 5 food items and Hubs can be a picky eater. Luckily, thanks to me Hubs is expanding his taste pallet; so I am more eager to try new recipes. One of my first, headed towards everyone in my family, is home made pancakes.
This is a big step and a future battle brewing. Bug only eats square waffle, cinnamon in flavor, must be cut into fourths and butter. If his waffles are not prepared that way; he refuses breakfast.
So needless to say, I was a little concerned how this would go. But you only live once, right?
Here is the award winning (per my two ASD children) pancake recipe. I would love to claim it as my own, but I got it off allrecipes.com.
3/4 cup milk2 tablespoons
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter melted
Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
Add butter and syrup to tasted after you have plated amazingly easy pancakes. My two ASD kids approved.

I have made pancakes from scratch but have not tried “souring” the milk! Will give this a try.
I was a little scared at first, why would I want to pour soured milk into sweetness of pancake batter. But it worked. The come out light and fluffy. Enjoy!
I’m a little scared of the soured milk too, but I might give it a try!
Trust me girls, it made me a little nauseous at first, but it will be all good.
