Around our house, it's quite common for us to have breakfast for supper. As a matter of fact, we have pancakes and bacon much more often as supper than we do for breakfast. We also do breakfast casserole, eggs and biscuits or even chocolate gravy and toast for supper occasionally. For some reason, these breakfast-for-supper-meals are especially good in the winter...but we have it year round.
If we're in a big hurry, we sometimes use the boxed pancake mix (as we did last night). Joy was the official pancake cook last night....only one pancake ended up on the floor, so it was a pretty successful event I'd say. (I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing her picture on my blog...she's just always with me everywhere I go, everything I do...and such a willing subject for photos!)
But, there is really no substitute for our homemade pancake recipe and DEFINITELY no substitute for our own homemade syrup. If you ever try it....I don't think you'll ever want to buy syrup in a bottle again (unless you're one of those thick syrup lovers). This syrup is so yummy!
1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp. salad oil
Stir until flour is moistened. Ready for cooking. (We usually double the recipe).
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. maple flavoring
1 cup water
Stir on stove until it becomes clear and begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour into appropriate container for serving.
Next time you're in the mood for pancakes, give this simple maple syrup recipe a try. I hope you like it as much as we do!
