Barbara Streisand just wrote on Twitter that she was getting through the Trump years with the judicious application of pancakes with syrup.  While she complained about the extra pounds, I thought her efforts sounded like a great idea.  We don’t really appreciate breakfast foods the way we should.

Here’s my recipe.  I usually have to triple it in my household, but then I’ve got lots of hungry people to feed.



1 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

Sprinkle of salt

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 cup milk

1 beaten egg

1/2 tablespoon vanilla (or however much you like.  I usually go heavy.  I like vanilla.)



Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl.  Add the milk and vanilla to the melted butter, THEN add the beaten egg.  (You don’t want the hot butter to scramble the egg.  The milk will cool it off first.)  Mix the wet ingredients into the dry with a large spoon until just a little lumpy.  In a large pan on medium heat melt a small pat of butter.  You just want to coat the bottom of the pan.  (You will not need to add more butter between batches.)  Spoon a large spoonful of batter on to the pan.  You should get four silver dollar pancakes, or you can use a measuring cup to get two larger pancakes.  This is awesome with syrup, fruit, or fruity syrup…whatever suits your fancy.
