It’s National Pancake Day and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than cooking some pancakes with your coffee maker.
Pancakes are great anytime of the day or night and if you only have a coffee maker, no problem, you can cook your cakes and eat um too.
- Use your favorite pancake mix or make it from scratch.
- Cover the burner with non stick foil, oil it and turn on the machine.
- Let it warm up while you mix up your batter, use what ever you like.
1 cup of mix makes about 6 pancakes.
Use a little less than ¼ cup batter per cake.
Cook until the bubbles stop forming and popping, then check for brownness, they will not get very brown unless you leave them on for a long time and by then the might be a little rubbery. Turn them over and cook for a couple more minutes.
I use non-stick foil placed on the burner, smooth it out nicely, and put a little oil on it with a paper towel. I have a little pan that I use sometimes but it is faster with the foil on the burner. Sometimes I put a little lid over it to help it cook faster, it collects a lot of moisture so be sure to wipe it off between each pancake.
Blueberry Fruit Spread from a jar.
Water to thin.
Fresh blueberries if you have them.
Put the spread in a pan to warm on the burner, add a little water to thin, add some berries and heat till warm.
