I looooooooooove pancake. Eating pancakes brings back so many happy memories of making breakfast with my mom. She was also notorious for making pancakes when we needed a quick dinner. I’ve had my fair share of pancakes, sugar free, carob chip pancakes and even low carb with flax. But my favorite is a pancake with a fried egg on top. Nothing beats a creamy egg yolk.
for freshly tapped maple syrup.
OMG nom nom
Sometimes I feel pretty lucky about the amount of truly organic foodie items I have access too. Mr. YUMs cousin has a little hobby farm where they raise their own cows, chickens and other farm animals. He also has maple trees. An aunt/uncle has an apple orchard and another aunt/uncle are bee keepers. At this point, I don’t know what is better; maple syrup or honey. Hard to pick but apples both taste good dipped in them!
From my family I get the garden and canning foods. Anyone remember the 90+ jars of pickles we canned? Or the tomatoes? I’m sad that I am not doing a garden this year. There’s a lot going on in our little world; which includes a move. So, if I decide to garden, it will be in containers so I can move them.
Ok. I am getting off track again.
Pancakes. Maple syrup.
The other day Mr. YUM stopped by his cousins and brought home this cute little bottle of freshly tapped maple syrup. I seriously did a little dance of pure excitement. I don’t eat many pancakes any more and pure maple syrup is a treat, but it’s also liquid gold to me. Raw. Pure. 100% awesome.
The husband is not a fan of maple syrup and he doesn’t really care too much about pancakes. He’s a take ’em or leave ’em kind of guy. So when he traveled to his other home for his job out-of-town, I knew I had some pancakes in my future. Problem is, I hate making a big batch. I usually have a batch of sugar-free homemade pancake mix on hand, my cupboard was empty. I hate buying pancake mix because I already keep all of the ingredients on hand.
So I set out to make perfectly portioned pancakes for one.
- 1 c flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp stevia
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk

- In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder, stevia, salt, and baking soda.
- Use a fork or whisk to blend the dry ingredients.
- Make a well in the middle of the ingredients and add the egg.
- Use the fork or whisk to blend the egg.
- Add the milk.
- Blend all ingredients together.
- Warm the non stick skillet on low to medium heat.
- Add oil, butter or cooking spray if you are worried about the pancake sticking to the pan.
- Use a ladle to pour the batter into the pan.

- Repeat until all the batter is used up.
