Silver Dollar Pancakes (or mini pancakes) are the perfect little pancake bites for any occasion. Spring has sprung around the St. John house. The windows are open and the flowers are starting to bloom. We love the weekends and typically start them off with waffles or pancakes. I couldn’t help but see the beautiful sun coming through our window and know that would be a great photo opportunity. These pancakes are quick, they don’t make too many, which is sometimes a good thing! We love to drizzle some local maple syrup on them as well. Hopefully we get to tap our own trees next year. Fingers crossed, enjoy!
Yields about 18 pancakes
You will need:
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar (any kind)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter, plus extra for the pan
1 large egg
1 teaspoon cinnamon (sometimes I like to do pumpkin spice)
1. Mix everything into one bowl and whisk until there are no lumps
2. Warm your pan on low to medium heat and melt about a tablespoon of butter in the pan. *I like to keep my pan at a lower heat so that I can get the coffee, fruit and table set while they are cooking and so they won't burn!
3. Scoop out a tablespoon or so of the batter (remember we are making mini pancakes!) Once you see a few "bubbles" form, flip the pancakes and cook the other side for about 2-3 minutes.
4. Remove from the pan and drizzle with butter, maple syrup, fruit, etc and enjoy!
