For Mother’s Day I put in a special request to Hubby earlier this week, I asked for his cinnamon swirl pancakes for breakfast. He makes a mean batch of pancakes, they are to die for. I love that he is able to impress me with his mad skills in the kitchen. He was happy to oblige my request today, which was a wonderful thing. He had his cinnamon swirl pancakes waiting for me when I got up. The house smelled heavenly when I made my way downstairs to the kitchen.
It was good thing that he had breakfast for me, I mean after all I did give birth to all of his children. He didn’t have endure those long months growing babies, then birthing them, nursing them, & the day in/day out of managing the home. Did he end up with stretch marks? Nope. He has me, I have the stretch marks to prove it (oh do I ever!). And for that I got yummy cinnamon pancakes. Along with a beautiful necklace & earrings. Good man. I think I’ll keep him around.
Now for Hubby’s Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes. The recipe makes 16–20 pancakes, depending on size of the pancake.
What You Need:
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons & 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 1/2 Cups Milk
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1/4 Cup Butter
Powdered Sugar For Topping!
How to put it together:
Sift together all your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon) with a sifter into a bowl. Melt your butter in a dish (on a griddle or the microwave). Add butter and all other wet (eggs, vanilla, milk) ingredients. Mix the dry & wet together in your bowl. Don’t worry about making it totally lump free, lumps aren’t your enemy in pancakes (on your thighs they are, in the pancakes a few lumps are good). Place your mixed batter by the spoonful onto a hot griddle or pan. The pancakes are ready to flip when the edges begin to bubble up. Flip & brown the other side. Then serve with lots of powdered sugar on top.
And enjoy. I mean really enjoy them. You will because they are delicious. Worth every stretch mark that those beautiful babies gave you.
