Pancakes for the Kids


                                   
I made 100 pancakes the other day for the kids at the center.  None of them had ever tasted real maple syrup and I really wanted to give them this experience and what better way to eat it than on good pancakes?  Here is the pancake recipe: 

 
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sour the milk with the vinegar for about 10 minutes.  Mix it with the rest of the ingredients but do not over mix. Let the batter sit for about 15 minutes before cooking.

                                    

I sent 1-1/2 gallons of maple syrup thinking the kids would drown their pancakes in it.  They ended up only using about a quart.  They were very respectful about overusing it which really surprised and delighted me.  If I had served these to my friends they would have used all of the syrup.

Within 10 minutes of opening the slow cooker, this is all that was left!  These disappeared soon after.
