Pancakes

1 cup all purpose flour

1 TBS baking powder

1 TBS sugar

pinch of salt

1 cup milk

1 egg

2 TBS melted butter

1 t. vanilla

Spray cooking oil

The best part of this recipe is the melted butter. It helps the pancakes brown so much better in the pan. Mix your dry ingredients in a bowl and your wet in a separate smaller bowl. I melt my butter in the microwave than add all my wet ingredients in the same bowl. Add wet to dry and mix to combine. Avoid mixing too much or you will get rubber Frisbees. (My grandpa made these for my sister’s and me one day when my grandma was out.) ( I was too young to know better and I complained & probably hurt his feelings. It was super sweet of him to try to make them for us, and boy o boy I miss him and all my grandparent’s now.)

The mix will form bubbles, we want bubbles or the pancakes don’t rise and may be tough. If too thick add a little more milk or some water. ( I most always use almond milk.) Fry on medium low heat with pan coated in cooking spray and wait for bubbles to form in pancakes before turning. Serves 3 or 4.

I am not selling these, right now I am out of elastic and I am only using the fabrics I already have here at home. If you want one please contact me through email. claussen4@verizon.net
I will keep making them and after I get enough feedback on how people like them I may sell some. Dave is going to set me up with PayPal so I ask for you to pay the shipping cost. Dave’s co-workers and local people just get in contact with me and we will figure out a way to get one to you from what I have left. I did order elastic but it isn’t here yet. So far these have been given to family, friends, and grocery store workers, but I want to keep giving them out as much as I can. Size small in picture.

Bread Machine Soft Pretzels

For Pretzel Dough
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast or 1 packet rapid rise yeast
1 Tablespoon salt (I like pink himalayan salt)
2 Tablespoons Honey
4 1/2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cup warm water
Add the above ingredients to your bread machine pot in the order recommended by your manufacturer. Mine are listed the way I place them in my Breadman machine. Set your machine to 2 lb. dough setting. Let run and raise in bread machine approx. 1 1/2 hours.
For Dunking Rolled And Shaped Pretzels Into (To give them a darker color and pretzel taste)
2/3 cup baking soda
large pasta pot boiling water
When the dough has raised put the 2/3 cup baking soda in large pasta pot of boiling water. Stir and it will dissolve and cool while you shape your pretzels. On a lightly floured surface dump out your dough and separate it into 8 parts. Roll out into 8 snake like pieces than shape your pretzel. I found that my longer thinner links turned out into better pretzel shapes. Take the shaped pretzel and dunk it into the baking soda water. Place on your oiled (cooking sprayed) baking sheet. Use a stick of butter at room temperature to rub the top of your pretzels add salt to the top if you desire. Preheat oven to 450* and when you have them all shaped, dunked, buttered, and salted bake for 10- 15 minutes.

* My husband and son helped me roll out the pretzels and they had a tough time rolling the dough into snakes or long links but no matter what they looked like they tasted great. P.S- It was much easier rolling them out after my hands were a little wet from dunking the one before in the soda water.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough (Honey Crust)

2 LB.
2 1/2 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
4 1/2 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 1/2 cup warm water
Place ingredients in you bread machine in the order recommended by your bread machine manufacturer. I listed my ingredients how I added mine with the yeast first. Press the dough button, and for the 2 pound size. My Breadman machine completes the dough in about 1 1/2 hours. You can use the dough as soon as it finishes, refrigerate it up to 3 days or freeze and defrost in the refrigerator. I have tried defrosting in the microwave but only for very short times at 3 power level. The microwave did make a few dry areas in my crust so I wouldn’t recommend using the microwave to defrost unless for super short time to finish defrosting after defrosting for most of the time in the refrigerator.
