All week, the remainder of the pancacke batter from this fiasco has been an albatross around my neck. I couldn't just dump all that batter. Way too much food to waste. This morning I've been pretty productive. While I was baking chicken for my lunch, I revived the pancake batter.
Part of the problem before was that there was not enough seasoning. I added a lot more nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. I added some molasses, another egg, almost another cup of white flour to even out the wheat flour and the liquidy part from some vanilla yogurt. Would that be considered whey?
I had the the pancakes for breakfast and really enjoyed them this time. I'll try this recipe again, but I think I'll leave out the chocolate-chips. They added some bitterness and seemed to detract from the other flavors. I may also only use white flour or half the amount of wheat flour. And I'll use more pumpkin.
As a back-up, in case these pancakes were horrible again, I took pictures of the contents of my fridge. In March, I did a similar post. Interesting comparing the contents.
I am thankful to have enough food to eat. My brother volunteered at a food pantry the other day and people were lined up all day to get food. For a country that has so much, there are far too many that do not have enough.
