For the past several months, I’ve had a dear friend greet me in the kitchen nearly every morning. And around here, mornings come early. Like, 4 a.m. early with our morning-person toddler. But I digress.
Is the dear friend coffee, you ask? Well, yes, I also have a dear friend in coffee, and copious amounts of it. But there’s also another best friend in the picture: this pancake mix. Super easy homemade pancake mix.
Now that our baby has been eating solids for a couple of months, we’re able to more confidently give her a hunk of bagel, a big broccoli floret, or a section of pancake to munch on all on by herself. So when my guy suggested whipping up a couple of pint-sized pancakes especially for her at breakfast time, it immediately took me back to my own childhood. As a kid, I thought silver dollar pancakes - little 2-inch pancakes named such because their diminutive size resembles that of a silver dollar – were the most awesomely freakin’ cool breakfast pretty much ever.
