Single Serving Pancake Batter

Just because you are only cooking for one...doesn't mean you need to cheat yourself out of a delicious breakfast.  I loved making special breakfasts for my girls.  Now that I eat breakfast alone...I still want to treat myself.  

Here is a simple recipe for a "single" (maybe a bit bigger than "single") serving of pancakes.  

1/2 C flour
1/2 t. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 T. sugar
1/2 C milk
1 egg
2 t. oil
1/2 t vanilla

You can make all different flavors from this simple batter. 

I substituted the zest and juice of 1 orange to batter and only added 1/4 C milk and no vanilla.  (I wish I would have added craisins or chopped fresh cranberries - next time)

You could use chocolate milk, 1/4 t. coco powder and add chocolate chips.

You could add 1 T. peanut butter or 1 T. Nutella.

You could add 1/4 t. of spices:  nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger each and 2 T. molasses for gingerbread pancakes.

Of course, this simple batter would be great if you added any type of berry, raisins, currents, creative.

I've also used 1/4 C flour and 1/4 C oatmeal too...oatmeal pancakes are delicious!  Use the same ideas to flavor the same way.  

This only takes minutes and is a healthier than drive thru...treat yourself to homemade.

What other varieties can you think of...I would love to know.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
