Feather Pancakes


It’s Sunday morning…it’s still cold outside. This calls for warm syrupy pancakes for breakfast! Years ago my mom’s friend Fay gave her a recipe for homemade pancakes. Although they tasted really good for some reason they always came out flat. With some changes to the original recipe I was able to add fluffiness to the pancakes. And with the addition of vanilla they became our favorite weekend pancakes. Sometimes we add chocolate chips; sometimes it’s sliced bananas, strawberries or blueberries. They’re as easy to make as they are to eat! Enjoy!   

Feather Pancakes
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
margarine for cooking

In a large bowl sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Whisk lightly until blended; there will still be some lumps. Set aside for a few minutes. Meanwhile, heat a pat of margarine in a skillet on medium high heat. Then reduce to low-medium and add about 1/3 cup pancake mix. Cook until bubbles form on the top of the pancake and bottom is nicely browned. If you want to add any extras to your pancake now is the time (chocolate chips, sliced bananas or strawberries, or blueberries). Turn pancake over and cook the other side. This batter makes about 12 pancakes. Serve with pancake syrup. A healthy alternative to boxed pancake mix.
