Re’sume’ addition: Miller

April 2, 2012


Remember that 100-grain hot cereal I was all crazy for? Well, it’s still good, but I hardly ever eat it. You know how middle-aged kids are – they go on eating jags (hot cereal, homemade bread, chicken pot pie) and then they never go back.

Well, I wanted pancakes this weekend and thought I could jazz them up with whole grains. The actual grains themselves would have been hard to tuck into a pancake, so I ground ’em up.

Immersion blender – GO!

A bit left in the jar, but I have a whole bag downstairs.

The motor started to make an odd smell.

Good enough.

It worked out alright, I guess.

I no longer use a recipe when making pancakes, so each batch is an adventurous event. The method is:
Some flour and some other thing (flax, this time that weird flour)
a pinch of salt
A pour of sugar
Some baking powder. (Remind me, I need to buy more baking powder.)
In a seperate bowl:
beat an egg. Dump some out if only making 2 pancakes
Add some milk to it so it’s about as much volume as the flour.
Add a couple of drops of vanilla.
Mix briefly. Assess. Too dry? More milk. Too wet? More flour.

It doesn’t matter – I’m the only one who eats them. I do like to chop up strawberries and throw them in the batter, though those giant ones from Sam’s are starting to look pretty mutated.

It that a head or a baby?

    Hehe… If I tried to make pancakes following that recipe, my final result would probably end up being weird… maybe some liquid that never solidified, no matter how long I cooked it. I’ll stick with measuring for now.

    Also, remember to get baking powder.

    Wow…that is so healthy! Way to go! You could be my chef anytime Lauren!

    It’s funny, I’ve never added ‘extras’ to my pancakes before….and what a simple & great idea! I think I’ll start with a crushed up twinkie.
