I have a tremendous amount of respect for my mom but of course she drove me crazy.
Jonathan made you this soymilk?
I asked if Jonathan made you this soymilk?
Oh, yeah. Last week. From scratch.
Mmhmm and is his wife nice too?
Is Jonathans wife nice?
Mom what kind of question is that?
Well I just asked if his wife was nice.
He doesn’t have a wife mom.
I thought you said he was married??
Well then, what is his wife…ohhh I got it I got it.
*me rolling eyes*
What made you ask that?
Well I was just wondering…
Too many questions. You’re here as a guest. That means you’re on a need-to-know basis only.
*her grumbling yet simultaneously asking if I’m hungry*
I really do like spending time with my mom.
My parents moved to Atlanta to be in a warmer climate when I was a freshmen in college and I can’t say I blame them, all this fucking snow.
Best part though – the entire weekend, I only cooked once.
We did a lot of eating out and I straight up OD’ed on carbs.
Like a motherfucker.
So the morning of her departure, I woke up like why stop now?
And like part of me feels like pancakes don’t really need step-by-step instructions because like everyone can make them but you know…
There’s always that one person that needs it written down.
Apple Pie Spiced Pancakes with Blue Agave & Blueberries
What I Used
Dry: 1 cup All Purpose Flour. ½ tsp Ground Cloves. ½ tsp Ground Nutmeg. 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder. 1 tsp Baking Powder. ½ tsp Salt.
Wet: 2 Large Eggs (yolks & whites separated). 1 cup Milk. 1 tbsp Melted Butter.
Blue Agave (or Maple Syrup).
What I Did
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet.
Pour a couple spoonfuls of the batter into the skillet and cook under med-low flame.
When the side up starts to bubble, flip.
Cook the other side until the side down is golden brown.
Don’t worry about if the top or the bottom is not evenly browned, that doesn’t really matter so don’t stress it.
This makes about 7 pancakes which was plenty for the 2 of us.
