From Scratch Pancakes

When I move out of my parents house I'm going to have three homemade meals a day no matter what. I crave good filling food. The problem with fast food is that there is really nothing there. You can order the king size but there is nothing there. Empty calories just filling your calorie intake, that's it. Even if it's nothing something totally made from scratch such as my fab chicken and dumplings. It's enough for me.
This morning I craved pancakes. Of course, like my hungry lazy teenage self should, I reached for the box of Hungry Jack Complete Buttermilk Pancake mix. Only to say, "Hey, where did it all go." Unlike most I didn't toss it back and get out cereal, instead I went online and found a pancake recipe at MrBreakfast.com. It's a simple recipe designed with a few people in mind. Of course I did my own variation. Instead of 1 tablespoon sugar I used 4 teaspoons. In place of oil I used butter. I added about 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and I lacked buttermilk so I used regular milk. They turned out wonderful, not very fluffy which can be fixed by seperating the egg yolk and whites then beating the egg whites.

Yaay for your ingenuity, and to decide you still wanted pancakes badly enough to make them from scratch. I don't know another teen who'd do that. Cheers to you.
