Call me the perfect mother if you must, but we love going to the library. (We being: My three monkeys and I) One of the best parts of going to the library is getting books on tapes, and having my monkeys transformed into angels as they sit entranced listening to their books on tapes. One of the books on tape that we got last week was "Curious George makes Pancakes." My kids listened to it over and over again, until my 3 year old was able to repeat the book word for word verbatim. So when my mother in law gave us some blueberries, we were definitely in the right frame of mind for blueberry pancakes! Here is my favorite ( and only!) recipe for pancakes. I love it so much, I haven't ever made pancakes from a mix! 

Perfect Pancakes
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
Mix above ingredients and add:
2 eggs
2 cups milk ( can use soy milk)

Heat oil in skillet, fill ladle with batter and pour into hot pan. Fry until the pancake starts to bubble and flip. Enjoy!

The irony of course is that my 3 year old monkey refused to touch the pancakes, because there were "ewwy blueberries inside". Apparently Curious George he is not. But we love him just the same, and every crumb of the pancakes were finished. 


  1. just wanted to let you know, my husband is making your pancake recipe for yeshiva's lunch :) (we've filled in for the yeshiva cook when she was on maternity leave, and now her husband has been sick so my husband has been covering kitchen duties again)

  2. Wow! I am very honored! My friend is the cook for a yeshiva in israel so she uses some of my recipes too...who would have thunk....

  3. he's looking for a pizza dough recipe that doesn't require rising time if you have one :)

  4. I actually have a recipe that I like alot, I was planning on posting a calzone recipe as soon as I upload the pics and edit... anyways, the recipe calls for rising time, but I dont usually, unless I make it early in the day. Here it is>http://thenewcook.com/2008/09/basic-pizza-dough/

  5. I just made your recipe for my hubs birthday this morning! Came out great! It needed a bit more flavor. I added Vanilla Sugar and a two more sprinkles of salt.
    Thanks for posting!
