One of the best things we can do for our families on the weekend is wake up early on a Saturday morning and prepare a breakfast of epic proportions with all the works, including pancakes! Whether you have your very own family recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation, or you like to stick with a classic store-bought mix, this simple method of creating a pancake breakfast for your family will not only be delicious and heartwarming for your loved ones. The following process of creating pancakes is also one of the methods that produce the least amount of mess for you to have to clean up in your kitchen. If you are looking for a recipe to go along with this technique, have no fear, as one will be included along with our instructions if you’d like to create your own batter as well.
Now the first thing you will need to do is grab your tools and ingredients. Remember, this method is so much easier on your breakfast making process and doesn’t leave a bunch of bowls or whisks in your sink for scrubbing when the meal is complete. You will need a clean, empty glass or plastic bottle that is complete with a tight-fitting lid; If you have a funnel in your home-cook armory that will fit into the opening of your container, you will want to grab this as well. That is pretty much it when it comes to the kitchen tools you will need to make your pancakes, and of course your measuring spoons and things of that nature. You will want to gather up all of your ingredients now, they are as follows: You will need ten tablespoons of flour, one pint of milk, two eggs that are beaten lightly, three tablespoons of vegetable oil or the oil you prefer to bake with, one half teaspoon of salt, and three tablespoons of sugar. Now that you have all of your tools and ingredients together, it’s time to get started!
Place your funnel inside the opening of the bottle you collected previously and carefully begin to pour your ingredients into the container. The best way to do this is by putting the wet ingredients into the vessel first and follow with the dry ingredients. Now that all of your ingredients are in the bottle close it up tightly with the lid provided and give it a good hard shake until all of the ingredients are mixed evenly. By now you should have your favored pancake making pan or griddle hot and ready for the batter to be poured in. Carefully remove the lid from the bottle and start pouring! Keep in mind that you can make each pancake as large or small as you would like and can even be poured into a metal cookie cutter to make fun shapes for the kids! Depending on how many pancakes you have to prepare for breakfast, you may have batter left over in the bottle. This is the next best part of this particular technique, if you have leftover batter it easily stays in the refrigerator for several days; Merely pull it out of the fridge and give it a decent shake and you’re ready for another round of flapjacks for your family tomorrow.
