"Come down all dressed, with socks and shoes. There's hot cocoa, eggs, and bacon for you."
With the help of my trusty Presto Electric Grill (They're not paying me, promise.) I can makes pancakes in a flash, eggs and bacon, or french toast. Somedays I just make oatmeal.
But something hot and tasty brings them downstairs so quickly. (And no food if you're not all dressed!) It's worth the little bit of work on my part. It's so much more pleasant in the morning lately. And it smells so yummy, too.
Here's the waffle/pancake recipe we use.
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp Sugar
1Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2-4 Tbsp melted butter or canola oil (more for waffles, less for pancakes)
1-1/2 to 2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk the dry ingredients together. Add eggs, butter (or oil), and 1-1/2 cups of the milk. Beat until smooth. Add more milk as needed. More for pancakes, less for waffles. This recipe makes just enough for our family of four.
