Step 1

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl EXCEPT THE FRUIT. That is your garnish to top your pancakes! You can use a hand mixer like Elliot is doing in the picture. Make sure all the flour and ingredients is well mixed.

Step 2

Use a coffe cup or measuring cup to carefully pour some of the mixture into the hot pan. WHEN YOU SEE BUBBLES AND THEY ARE POPPED- then SLOWLY try to flip the pancake and make sure it is browned on bottom. Serve it with your favorite fruit topping or cool whip.


Play some music quietly in the background to wake you up and SMILE. Don't forget to PRAY before you sit down and eat with your family. Give thanks for all our father in heaven is providing for us.
