They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And with meals that load you up on your necessary daily nutrients, who would want to miss out? Although it is important to stick to foods that are packed with essential nutrients, there are ways to eat wholesome breakfasts and still enjoy delicious, tasty meals.

One of the favorite breakfasts for those with a little bit of a sweet tooth is pancakes. They are high in the necessary wheat and grains needed for a balanced diet. You can add several different toppings and dressings to your pancakes to add even more nutritious value, such as fresh fruit.

Pancakes can be purchased pre-packaged and you only need to cook them in a toaster before being consumed. However, these pre-packaged, frozen pancakes do not contain the necessary nutrients, yet they are more convenient.

Luckily, pancakes are easy to make. Here is a standard recipe to make basic, tasty pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (250 grams)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter (plus more butter for cooking)
  • High-heat vegetable oil (like canola or safflower) for cooking.

Directions:
1) Preheat your griddle to 375 degrees, or heat a nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat.

2) Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

3) Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

4) Beat/blend the eggs thoroughly. Add eggs, melted butter, and half the milk to dry ingredients and mix gently until it is all combined. Then, proceed to stir in the remaining contents of the milk under your batter is the right consistency that you want. Beware to not over mix these ingredients!

5) Melt butter on the griddle or pan– it should foam slightly and sizzle. Drop a small amount of cooking oil onto griddle and mix with butter.

6) For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle or pan you are using.

7) Continue to cook until the top of the pancakes are bubbling and the bottoms are golden brown, or as cooked as you want them to be.

8) Flip the pancakes over and cook until the uncooked part is golden brown. Either serve these pancakes right away, or put them in the oven to keep them heated.
