Easy Pancakes and Syrup

Easy Pancakes

1 cup milk
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp butter
2 eggs
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
Sprinkling of salt

Heat milk, sugar, and butter slowly in a saucepan to melt butter. Remove from heat and let cool while beating the eggs. Add milk, sugar, butter mixture to eggs. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until smooth.

Don’t feel like slaving over a hot griddle? Try the lazy bake method:

Thoroughly grease a 9 x 13 brownie pan. Pour in pancake batter. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Easy Syrup

Brown sugar
Corn starch

Amounts used will vary depending on how much syrup you want to make. The following examples are good for use with the number of pancakes produced by the recipe above.

Use twice the amount of brown sugar as the amount of water you use. So, if you use a 1/4 cup of water, use 1/2 a cup of brown sugar. Put them both in a saucepan. Break up brown sugar in the water. Stir thoroughly. Bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Sprinkle in about 2 tsp corn starch. Break up the lumps with the back of a spoon against the sides of the saucepan. Bring it back up to a boil. Let it boil up for a minute or so. Turn off heat. Add a tbsp of butter or so. Stir to melt butter. Add a tsp of vanilla. Stir it. Stick a lid on it.
