Home Made Pancakes

I discovered my love for pancakes in my teens, and believe it or not, making home-made pancakes was something I enjoyed doing at that time (besides caramel custard!). Being a kid who was maturing, I made my pancakes so big and round it was really hard to flip, but they turned out edible. Kingsley and I have pancakes for Sunday morning before we head to church. I guess that’s something of my Hope College days that still lives on. Every saturday no matter how awful the snowstorm was outside, my friends and I made pancakes at 10am – and we always had a packed house of 20 people. Unbelievable for a college student!!!!


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • Oil / butter for the pan

Combine your dry and wet ingredients together (the first 4 mentioned) and make your batter. Make sure you don’t have any lumps in it!

Heat a pan / griddle and pour your batter on it – cook evenly on both sides – it will brown up and look all nice and fluffy (YUM!) – don’t let it get really brown and burnt!

When done – serve it with warm maple syrup. You can also try it with peanut butter – I have done this and its good!  I like to eat mine with bananas or strawberries – so you can do that as well. If you like to be bad and splurge, throw a dollop of whip on a pancake  🙂

This post makes me laugh because before kingsley and I married, his friends in NZ said that I (Beula) would only feed him fish n chips and burgers and pancakes – so here’s to all of them – this post is dedicated to all those people,  hahahaha  🙂 ….
