Pancakes are something of a Saturday morning tradition in our family. However, I am not always content to make just plain old pancakes. I like to experiment with ingredients and sometimes I come up with successes (and sometimes spectacular fails).
This one I came up with recently that my wife and daughter happened to really, really love.
So please, enjoy!
Step 1: Ingredients.
For this recipe, you will need:
1 Cup Bisquick (or your own home version of Bisquick)
1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
2 1.5 oz. packets of instant oatmeal (maple/brown sugar flovor, of course!)
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. sugar (yes, I know I forgot to put it in the picture)
1 Cup water
Step 2: Mix It.
Combine all of your ingredients and mix well. You are wanting to achieve a well incorporated texture.
Step 3: Cook!
Heat your skillet or griddle to medium (either 5-6 if your top is electric or when water drops sizzle on the surface of your pan)
Use your preferred cooking oil to grease your pan (I used unsalted butter)
Drop approximately 1/4 cup onto your skillet and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes a side.
Flip and repeat.
Remove them from the skillet and top them however you like. Then of course, enjoy!
Note: If you have ever cooked pancakes before, you will know when it's time to flip by the bubbles that form in the batter.
This recipe will yield about 5-6 pancakes, depending on how large you make them.
