Pancakes are so easy to manipulate into shapes to teach with, so we are going to start doing plates of multiplication equations. Maybe one or two a week. I am hoping it will help. I know this works for the alphabet.
We are also using flash cards but my child doesn't like studying, bless her heart. She is so not into buckling down with anything, but she makes good grades though. Multiplication tables takes on a whole new meaning when they are on the breakfast table. Maybe she won't know she is studying this way, which is my goal!
This recipe has vinegar instead of baking soda and also has condensed milk in it because I accidentally opened a can. I turned the condensed milk into buttermilk with the vinegar, plus the vinegar makes it fluffy. I use a spoon of mayonnaise instead of an egg since I don't usually have eggs at the end of the month and I like to make batters safe so that children can lick the bowl. This recipe doesn't have vanilla in it but if you taste it, you can taste vanilla.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder (not soda)
1 cup milk made by using two level spoonfuls of condensed milk and mixing enough water to make it one cup.
1 Tbsp. or heaping tsp. of mayonnaise
1/2 capful of Apple Cider Vinegar (about to two tsp.)
1/8 cup vegetable oil
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and let sit for about 5 minutes. Put on a hot skillet that is sprayed with non-stick spray. When bubbles are all over top then turn.
I put butter and use sugar free syrup on ours.
Sometimes I will take a little warm milk, splenda, and a touch of vanilla and mix it until the top forms a froth and use it as cool whip.

Nice, healthier version of normal pancakes. Very good and filling.
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
2 Tbsp. wheat germ
3 Tbsp. oil
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Beat eggs slightly. Add yogurt and oil. Add dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened. Lightly oil hot griddle or skillet. Pour about 1/4 cup batter for each cake. When bubbly, turn over and cook other side for about 2 minutes. Watch closely!
I use a large empty catsup bottle or any squirt/squeeze bottle with a screw on lid for pancakes or funnel cakes. Just put the ingredients in and the bottle shake, you can mix right in the bottle. Then squeeze out designer pancakes. If you have leftovers you can even store the batterin the squirt bottle for another day.
The grandkids love making pancakes. They squirt out some pretty fancy animals, mickey mouses and smiley faces. We are all kids at heart and that is my favorite one to make, a heart. And yes, circles come out perfect if you stay direct center and squeeze.
Well, breakfast on a daily basis is hard when you are on a budget like mine of $525 a month thru SSI, so what I do is make Mother Earth pancakes. Here is the recipe:
2 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
4-5 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 salt
2 cups sugar
4 cups buttermilk
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 slight beat egg yolks
2 stiff egg whites beaten too
Stir together the dry ingredients. Add the milk, and yolks, blend them well together. Fold the egg whites into the mix. Let it stand until there are no bubbles, about 10 to 14 minutes. Bake on a hot, lightly greased pan.
I like to make a lot as I like to stack them and smear homemade jelly on them and in between them too. This recipe can serve up to three people if you make them small enough. Butter can be left out overnight to be melted just so you know you don't have to thaw on the morning you make it. This recipe gives me energy to make it to noon as I have no longer been doing brunch, because my meds. have changed my sleep pattern to make me wake early and not late. Well, eat happily and have fun with the pancakes too.
Bunny pancakes are microwave easy! The kids are going to love this.
1 stack Pillsbury frozen original microwave pancakes (3 pancakes)
1/2 maraschino cherry
2 pieces (1 1/2 inches each) red string licorice
1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
On large microwavable plate, stack 2 of the pancakes. Microwave uncovered on High for 30 seconds. Cut remaining pancake into ears and bow tie. Arrange ears and bow tie around stack of pancakes to look like bunny. Microwave on High 30 to 45 seconds or until hot. For bunny's face, arrange raisins for eyes, cherry for nose and string licorice for mouth. Drizzle with syrup. Serve immediately. Makes 1 pancake.

I use to buy Jiffy pancake mix in the small boxes and loved it because they added maple syrup (or flavoring) to it. I can no longer find them in the stores here. I've tried adding syrup to the batter and it does not work out. Does anyone have a recipe for these?
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter and buttermilk. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar; stir into the wet ingredients just until blended. Adjust the thickness of the batter to your liking by adding more flour or buttermilk if necessary. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Continue with remaining batter.
