Pancakes that can be stirred up as fast as a mix. As a young cook, I tried mixes but most called for an egg and oil. So I thought since I had to get these out anyway, I may as well skip the mix and use my own flour and milk also. This is what I came up with.
This is an adaptation of a recipe that was published in our local paper. My daughter and I like it so much I have made a large batch of the spice mix to simplify our breakfast routine. Anyone who likes Indian food will probably enjoy this for a change.
I have been poaching eggs in the microwave for many years. For me this is the best way to prepare poached eggs for 2. It is quick, easy and almost foolproof. Please make sure you use a toothpick to pierce the yolk before cooking or it will explode!
My daughter Adiya (AKA Didi) adores Cheerios. No one else is allowed to eat out of her box. God help any one of her sisters if they eat some of HER Cheerios. Since she's a picky kid and has the temper of Rosemary's Baby, we let her get away with this, better than picking a fight. Anyway... one day when she was out at a friend's house I came across this recipe in a magazine, and the urge just took over, and I broke into one of Didi's sacred boxes of Cheerios. You should have heard that kid shriek. Still, she shut up pretty quickly when I jammed one of these into her mouth. Now we each have our own box of Cheerios, and got help anyone else in the family who steals even on "O"!
So many other recipes I've found call for several ingredients or make a lot. I've always made my pancakes much more simply than that. I got this recipe when I was recovering from surgery - they're high-protein and quick and easy. Perfect for a quick breakfast when you don't feel well.
The ultimate breakfast comfort food. Quick to make if you boil the eggs ahead of time. To get the full flavor, you have to cook the butter and flour enough to lose the flour taste, that's the key to getting this dish right.
