Wow, the past week has been so insanely busy! We’ve been working on school, we made strawberry jam and yogurt earlier last week, we have spot cleaned the house from top to bottom, had an essential oil team meeting, and we had a slumber party to celebrate our birthdays! We had a bunch of friends over and had a great time. Sadly, being so busy kinda made us fall off the face of the blogging world 😥 So here we are! We had a fabulous brunch this Sunday and wanted to share it with you 😀
We had bacon (made by Chris), homemade arepas (made by Jp) and pancakes (made by Erica), served with orange juice. These are our favorite pancakes ever; so fluffy and yummy 😀 Sometimes we make a syrup from strawberry jam, or from brown sugar and bananas (that one’s Poppas favorite) and they are soooooo good! This recipe is enough to make a few pancakes for each person at our table (so 10 people). Here is what you need to make these pancakes:
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
10 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cups sugar
9 tsp butter, melted
3 3/4 milk
Lets get started! First, put your butter in a bowl and set it in the microwave to melt to a liquid (we don’t own a microwave so we popped it in our toaster oven 😀 ). In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.In a separate bowl, mix together the milk and eggs. Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the milk egg mixture, along with the melted butter. We use a Kitchenaid Mixer but you can use a whisk to mix the batter well. It will be very thick and slightly lumpy, but that’s normal. Heat up your griddle or stove to medium-high. Use a 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake to get them to the right size. Cook up some bacon to go on the side, and you’re done! These are so yummy, and incredibly fluffy. Everyone always wants more, but they are usually too full to eat any extra!
