Here We Go!

Welcome to Lille Mor.

I am and will always be Lille Mor (or little mother)...a name bestowed on me by my grandfather at the tender age of 2. It conjures many memories (mostly of being reminded to eat my food at the dinner table) and has stuck with me into adulthood. Lille Mor will showcase a cross section of my loves; design, food, kids and crafts. I'm super excited to share my thoughts (and a few recipes) with you and hope you will enjoy it as well.
I'm a bit nervous with all this - it's kind of like public speaking in grade school! I'm sure it will get easier each day.
So… I figured that the best way to get to know each other would be to share my absolute favourite comfort food…pancakes!! My mum made them all the time when we were kids and the tradition continues in my house. I've made A LOT of different recipes but this is by far the best.

Adapted from the Robin Hood Flour Cookbook (1967)

1 1/3 c. flour 1 c. milk
2 tblsp. sugar 1/4 c. yogurt
3 tsp. baking powder 1 egg
3/4 tsp. salt 3 tblsp canola oil

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (I use a whisk)
Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and stir to combine.
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Pour batter 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle and bake until bubbles form on top and they are nice & and puffy.  Flip and bake the other side. You should get about 10 - 6" pancakes.

Now, the great thing with this recipe is it's adaptability; use whole wheat flour, throw in some flax seeds, substitute the yogurt for sour cream or milk if it's all you have. Prefer butter to the canola? Go for it! Make it your own and enjoy...

  1. I love pancakes, but usually resort to using a premade mix- I will definitely try these out, thanks you sharing the recipe! :)
