Sunday Brunch + Pancake Recipe!

9.jpgWow, 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
3 eggs
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.1.jpgIn 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. 3.jpgWe 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. 4.jpgHeat 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. 5678Cook 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!

Sunday Brunch

We have been super busy lately! With getting ready for Christmas, prepping the house for our grandparents visit, and finishing up school for the semester, the past few weeks have us all pooped. This Sunday was no different. We figured, what better way to enjoy a lazy Sunday than with a simple Sunday brunch!?

We had prepped ourselves an awesome table of side dishes. We sliced up some summer sausage and cheese, made a delicious dip to go with celery, and cut up some guava and white cheese. Yum! We also enjoyed some crisp, fresh apples dipped in caramel, olives (cause why not!), and had an extra dip made of cream cheese and an amazing jam made of jalapeno and peaches. So good! The last thing we had is a personal favorite: fried tortilla chips. They’re so simple but so crunchy and amazing!! All you do is cut up the tortilla into triangle slices (we like them thin so we do 16 slices per tortilla) and then fry them up. Since they’re thin tortillas, frying is super fast. When you’re finished, you have delicious chips that are crispy, salty, and perfect for dipping. Easy peasy right?

We’d love to hear how you enjoy your Sundays. Comment down below!
