Saturday Brunch

I had a busy morning with worship practice today, so by the time I got home and got our meal ready, it was actually noon :0) We went ahead with breakfast food, though…b/c I LOVE breakfast food!! (technically, there’s not much food that I don’t love, but that’s beside the point). We had pancakes and cheesy scrambled eggs.

Fanny Farmer Pancakes
2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 egg
2 c milk
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Combine dry ingredients. Add egg and milk and stir well. Add butter. Fry 1/4 c of batter (or desired amount) on hot griddle. Serve with favorite toppings. (Mine happens to be the Cinnamon Syrup I listed last week…yummo!)

The story behind these pancakes being named “Fanny Farmer” is that a couple of years ago, Reagan brought home a book from the Hutch Library and had this recipe in it. I’ve loved it ever since. It’s basic, easy, but yummy.

This is what the batter looks like after I added the eggs and baking soda…ready for the griddle.

Waffles turned out great….however, my children tend to be fuddy-duddies and didn’t even want to try the Cinnamon Syrup. I found it to be d e l i c i o u s….mmm.

Happy New Year

So, most people make a new year’s resolution (or maybe several). I usually choose to not make promises that I can’t or won’t keep. However, instead of calling it a resolution or promise or whatever…I’m going to call this my new hobby: telling you about my favorite recipes and about my baking experiences. I’ll probably end up talking about my husband and kids, too, because, hey…they’re a huge part of my life. So, for my very first recipe, I’ll be sharing Overnight Waffles and Cinnamon Syrup (mmmm!), which we’ll be enjoying for brunch tomorrow on the first day of 2010!

Overnight Waffles
2 c warm milk
1/2 c warm water
1/3 c butter, melted
1 pkg yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 c flour
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda

In large bowl, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Dissolve yeast in warm milk, water, and butter. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Cover and let sit overnight. Next morning, add eggs and baking soda, and mix well. Pour about 1/3 c on hot waffle iron. Serve with favorite syrup.
*Correction* Be sure to leave out overnight at room temperature.

Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla
1 c water

Add all ingredients to small sauce pan, and mix well. Heat over medium-high heat (stirring constantly) until it starts to boil and becomes a thick, syrup consistency. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving. Can be refrigerated.
