|Pretty isn't it?|
I have recently found a great bisquick recipe. Now I am constantly looking for things to make with the bisquick. The natural choice is pancakes. We make pancakes often in our home. It annoys me that it took me this long to start making bisquick in large batches. It makes pancake making a breeze. I use this bisquick recipe from cooks.com. It is super easy and doesn't require powdered milk.
|That's all folks!|
As for the pear syrup- well that was completely accidental. We usually use maple syrup (yeah Canada). But we ran out and I had to think fast on my feet. My mother had given us some freshly picked pears. Voila pear syrup! Make the syrup before you start the pancakes and you will have the syrup ready when the pancakes are ready!
|I use 1/4 of a cup of batter. It makes the perfect size.|
1 cup of bisquick mix
3/4 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Mix ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth. Pour a 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. When bubbles appear flip over. Pile pancakes so they stay warm.
4 pears peeled and sliced (3/4 of an inch thick)
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons of apricot jam (optional)
2 tablespoons of butter
Add the ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer on low until it thickens. Take pot off stove. Stir in cold butter. Pour syrup on your beloved pancakes and smile sweetly. At least that's what the children and I did!
|Pile it on to keep them warm.|
