I really can’t believe it. NINE. Once we start getting close to the double digits, I get a little gob-smacked about it all. If I had a third baby within the year, there’d be a decade between my oldest and youngest! I’ve almost been a mom for nine years! ARGH! And what a near-nine-year-old she is. She’s mouthy as all get out, to me, but one day I’ll love that about her. She’s going to challenge the system. The systems. And she is sweet as pie (and pancakes) to friends and teachers and strangers.
What You Need:
1 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 cup whole milk
2 tbsp oil
2 drops violet gel food coloring
1 stick butter, softened
2 drops red gel food coloring
1/2 cup of condensed milk
Yields: Approx. 8-10 small pancakes
What You Do:
1 – Start by sifting your flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar and whisk.
2 – Add egg, milk, and oil and whisk until batter forms and is smooth.
3 – Divide the batter in 2 bowls and color each one with its respective gel food colorings. Mix until each bowl of batter is completely tinted.
4 – On a hot skillet (heated over medium heat) sprayed with cooking oil and/or coated with butter, pour ¼ cup of the batter and cook until bubbles form on top. Flip and cook until edges lift/turn a very light brown.
5 – Stack pancakes on a plate and pour over your condensed milk. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles and enjoy the sweet magic!
