What's cooking Wednesday

I was inspired by Shannon's recipe today for her puffy Dutch pancake so I pulled out the frying pan and whipped up some pancakes for breakfast this morning. Rather than using my usual recipe, which I really like, I tried something new. The girls and I liked it so much, I might stick with it.

The recipe is from Canadian Living. It's called Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes although if you're not a blueberry fan, you could just as easily leave them out or replace them with something you do like. The recipe also notes that you can make these into waffles using the same batter. I may give that a try next time.

To make our breakfast extra fancy this morning, I put out the good china and silverware and lit candles. The girls loved it, of course. The result was that they ate their breakfasts really well and it kicked off what ended up being a great day with two very happy kids.

(As an admission, I may have used the candles also because when first used this morning, the switch for the dining room light fixture started to smoke. And therefore we did not use that light for the rest of the day. I may be going to Home Depot tomorrow.)

Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

1 1/2 cups flour
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs, separated
3 tbsp butter, melted
3/4 cup blueberries

In large bowl, mix together four, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir together yogurt, milk, egg yolks and butter; mix into flour mixture with a few quick strokes. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry, peaks form; fold into batter. Fold in blueberries.

Melt some butter in frying pan and add 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook the usual way. Slather in butter and maple syrup and enjoy.
