Make Every Day Pancake Day.

Yesterday was Pancake Tuesday (or Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, whatever you want to call it…) and we had a fun pancake party at the Makers Loft to celebrate! So today, for those of you who missed it, weren’t in Berlin or are interested in making your own delicious ‘cakes, here’s the recipe we used: 

1 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp oil
1 cup milk (or buttermilk)
1 egg
a pinch of salt

Mix ingredients together.
Spoon mixture onto a hot pan with a 1/4 cup measure, or a ladle. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. 
Makes about 8 medium sized pancakes.  
Serve immediately, with lots of butter and maple syrup. You can also add mixin’s into the batter - think blueberries, chocolate, banana, oats, apples - it’s infinitely adaptable! 

Enjoy! Thanks to those who came out last night, we had a fantastic time.
