Maple Glazed Doughnut Pancakes

Share

This is how our day begins…

Mom – Good morning Charlie
Charlie – What’s for breakfast?
Mom – insert a variety of answers...pancakes, waffles, eggs, bagel sandwich
Charlie – pulling the covers over his head…AGAIN

as if I’m supposed to create a new, original, masterpiece every morning

the pressure

today I delivered

pancakes that not only look like (well sort of – there is a hole in the middle) doughnuts,
but taste like them as well

covered in a maple glazed syrup

good morning

For the pancakes:
1 cup of flour
1 egg
3/4 – 1 cup of milk (this works best if the batter is thick)
1 tsp of baking powder
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 – 1/2 tsp nutmeg (depending on your personal taste) we LOVE nutmeg
I also added a few sprinkles:)


combine the dry ingredients
whisk together the milk, egg, and butter
pour over the dry ingredients
whisk until everything is combined

heat griddle to 350degrees
butter generously (this gives the taste/texture of a fried cake doughnut)
using a pastry bag or ziploc with the tip cut off, squeeze batter out into a circle (leaving a hole in the middle)

flip
keep warm in a 200 degree oven while you make the syrup

Glaze Syrup:
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
2 tbsp of melted butter
2 tbsp of milk or cream
1 tsp maple syrup

mix ingredients well
and drizzle over pancakes

this is sure to get the kids out of bed in a hurry:)

Enjoy!
