My daughter Kalissa is high jacking my blog…
Greetings Earthlings! This is Kalissa speaking….
Before looking at the picture below, remember: Don’t judge a book by its cover! (by the way I think this saying is absurd because the only thing I pay attention to when checking out books is the cover) BUT! this saying can be very easily applied to this next blog post.
These are Scrambled Pancakes and let me tell you: They. Are. Fantabulous. <—(one of Kalissa’s made up words…an adjective meaning something that is far beyond fantastic and fabulous)
I am a sophomore in high school so everyone in my grade is turning 16 and having sweet 16 birthday parties. (in my family mom and dad usually throw a surprise birthday party and despite the “surprise” element of this statement, my best friend Regan and I have my surprise sweet 16/golden birthday party at the local rollerskating rink all planned out…my birthday is in May and this has been planned since July)…but BACK TO PANCAKES, my friend Olivia had her sweet 16 birthday party on Sunday night which consisted of extreme sledding/dance party/four wheelers/gulf carts/THESE PANCAKES!
I was in love at first bite. I was eager to get home and test it out for myself by improvising a recipie of my own…BAD IDEA. To get the best idea of how it turned out, at first, imagine taking bread dough, and frying it in a pan…and of course I forgot cooking spray. Mom tried lying and telling me it tasted good, but I didn’t hear her because i was already too busy trying to figure out how I was going to redeem myself by SUCCESSFULLY making scrambled pancakes. (I take my cooking very seriously and OK and no mushrooms are not an option) I hit the internet and the next morning…SHAZAM!!!! Here is the worlds best breakfast recipe:
2 T butter
2 T sugar
4 eggs SEPERATED
2 cups flour
1 cup milk
2 T. Butter
- Cream butter until frothy, then add, one after another, sugar, egg yolks, salt, flour and milk. Beat egg whites until stiff and carefully fold in
- Melt remaining butter in a cast iron skillet and pour in batter
- Fry on each side until golden brown.
- With two forks, chop the resulting pancake.
- Serve on a hot platter sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
AND they are German pancakes…this is something that the pancakes and I have in common. Give it a shot, its worth it.
