We are having a snow day here in New Jersey! I don't love the snow, but I am happy to spend the day inside snuggling with my two girls. I only wish that John did not have to work in the snow!
We spent our morning watching A Muppet Family Christmas - my favorite Christmas movie growing up! In fact, Lacie was too busy watching to look at the camera. Sweet B is wearing a bib because she is cutting two more top teeth and is drooling like a waterfall!
Best Movie Ever!
Onto the recipe of the day!
Snickerdoodles are a fun cookie that just remind me of Christmas. Every year, at least one person I know makes a batch of snickerdoodles to put on their Christmas Cookie Trays! They may not be the fanciest cookie - its really just cinnamon and sugar - but the cookies have a familiar and comforting taste that I think everyone enjoys!
Well last Saturday, I wanted to come up with a new and fun pancake for our traditional Saturday Morning Pancake tradition. We've already retired the Pumpkin Pancakes as it is no longer fall in my eyes (I know technically it is but still it's really not). It wasn't anyone's birthday so Funfetti Pancakes were out, and I didn't have the ingredients on hand for Gingerbread Pancakes.
Then, I came up with a great idea - SNICKERDOODLE PANCAKES!!! And they were so so simple! I can't believe I have never made these before!
Here's What You Need to Make the Snickerdoodle Pancakes:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 3/4 cups of milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pancake toppings of choice (butter, real maple syrup, fresh fruit, etc)
Now Let's Make the Snickerdoodle Pancakes:
- Preheat your pancake griddle over medium heat and grease (I use butter)
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon
- Mix in the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract - don't over mix - a few lumps are okay
- Pour batter in circles on preheated griddle - this recipe will make nice medium to large sized pancakes
- When small bubble begin to appear on the surface of the pancake (about 2-4 minutes) flip pancake
- Cook on second side an additional 2 minutes, being careful not to burn your pancake - the cinnamon will make them burn faster than regular pancakes
- Serve with butter, syrup and other pancake toppings of choice. On this particular day, I made a nice vanilla glaze to go over the top!
These were amazing! John stated that they were his favorite after our traditional chocolate chip pancakes!
John ate four pancakes.
