They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day…and I agree, so long as it comes shortly after rolling out of bed around noon-ish. The problem for most mothers is that there is never enough time in the day…or at least in the morning to make sure that the kids get a good breakfast into them before running out the door for work and school. There is one way that you can get some hot pancakes into them though, without having to rush around and make a huge mess and what mother would argue with that?
The first step is to eat ketchup…ok, let me explain. A great way to make pancakes is to store the batter in an old cleaned out ketchup squeeze bottle. Its perfect grab out of the fridge and pour strait into the hot pan without having to mix it and dirty dishes. Just make the batter up when you have the time, use a funnel to pour it into a washed out ketchup bottle and store it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Then in the morning, heat up the pan, throw in some butter and squeeze the batter out into the perfect pancakes. The only dishes you will have is the pan and the plates!!! So how do you make the batter? Here is a simple recipe that works every time and goes by the rule of ones.
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powderPrint or share this recipe using the icons above!
