Last Saturday morning, Charlie and I found ourselves alone for breakfast. Peyton was asleep and Nate was out getting us our new picnic table. So, as a special treat (just as much for me as her!) I decided to make flapjacks with her.
The recipe is out of an old family cookbook and was submitted by my great-grandma. I have no idea how far back it goes, but I like the idea of eating something that my grandma had as a little girl. Plus, my brother and I thought these were the greatest when we were growing up. We'd make stacks and stacks of these things! (I do know for a fact that he still does. . .)
The recipe is REALLY simple:
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
milk to make the batter thin
mix all ingredients and pour just enough to thinly cover the bottom of a hot skillet.
once the edges start to turn brown, flip and finish cooking on other side.
stack all the flapjacks on a plate, cut into fourths, roll and serve dipped in sugar.
I haven't had these in forever! I'm so glad I made them with Charlie. I think she liked dipping the yummy little rolls and enjoyed "helping" make her breakfast.
