What's For Breakfast: Heart-Shaped Pancakes

For today's breakfast, some Valentine's-inspired heart-shaped pancakes. The recipe I used this morning was from my trusty Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.

Pancakes
makes 8 servings (or, um, 2 hearty servings)

1 C unbleached all-purpose flour
1 T raw sugar
2 t aluminum-free baking powder
1/4 t fine sea salt
1 beaten farm egg, beaten
1 C organic skim milk

1. Sift together the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center.
2. Stir together the milk and beaten egg.
3. Add the milk mixture in the center of the dry ingredients. Stir until combined (the batter will be lumpy). Add more milk to thin out the batter if needed.
4. Spoon the batter onto a lightly greased hot skillet (I use an electric skillet, set around 350-375 degrees). Cook for about 2 minutes per side. (Or flip when bubbles appear.)
5. Draw the outline of a heart and fill with the batter to make heart-shaped pancakes. Or invest in some of these.

Bon appetit!
