Happy Valentines Day!!!!!!!!!!!

BrazenBites sent me this recipe a while back and I haven been saving it for Valentines Day Brunch.  With my Honey working swings, I usually cook a meal about noonish and then send a lunch.  Anyway…….this recipe is from Two Peas and their Pod by Josh and Maria.  OMG….these are wonderful. Not the most slimming recipe, but enjoyable and worth the “sin” …whatever that is.   I am going to just copy and paste the recipe because it is perfect just how it is and I wouldn’t change a thing.

CINNAMON STREUSEL PANCAKES

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Streusel:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks

1. First, make the cinnamon streusel. In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Mix together with your hands or a fork, until you have a crumbly mixture. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt.  In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Do not over mix, batter will be slightly lumpy.

3. Heat a griddle or pan to medium low. Coat with cooking spray. Drop 1 cup of batter onto heated skillet.  Add 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon streusel. Cook on the first side until bubbles begin to form, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip pancake over and cover very generously with cinnamon streusel.  Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Continue this process to make the rest of the pancakes.

4. Serve warm with maple syrup and butter.

Makes 6 very large pancakes

 

Okay…….so I didn’t follow it exactly.  No syrup.  These really don’t need it.

Hope you and your Sweetie have a wonderful day!!!
