For months we have been going to Mcdonalds for breakfast before we head off to art class, every time I will order their breakfast deluxe that cost about SGD8+ and share it with DinoBoy. While DinoBoy takes the 2 pancakes and the harsh brown, I will have the English muffins and the patty, we will share scrambled eggs and the milo. If you split the price into half its about SGD4+ per person, slightly higher than a meal in the neighbourhood coffeeshop. However, its such a heavy breakfast that usually we will skip lunch that is about 4hours away, which means more "saving" for us.
Great deal for us right? Except that there are 2 things that I dislike; 1. waking up early so that we will have ample time to have our breakfast AND make it to class on time, 2. I'm actually sick of eating that tough English muffins and the salty patty. Good enough reasons for me to try to make breakfast on Saturdays isn't it?
I found this Good Old Fashioned Pancakes in allrecipes.com and set out to make the pancakes last weekend. It's easy to make, its soft, its fluffy and we love it, even me, who is not a pancake fan. This photo really does not do justice to the recipe, you seriously have to make the pancakes and taste them on your own.
The recipe states that it will make 8 pancakes, I am not sure the size of the pancakes but I decided to reduced the ingredients so that I can make lesser pancakes; I used 1 cup each of plain flour & milk, 3 teaspoon of baking powder and the rest of the ingredients based on my feeling at that moment. Then I used the ice cream scoop to spoon the batter onto the pan and I made 10 palm sized pancakes which are the right size for DinoBoy though he said they were "kinda thin as compared to McDonald's but taste much better than that.". Enough said! This recipe is definitely to keep and I can foresee that I will be using it very often.
