'Buttermilk Pancakes for Mom' by Chef Kyleigh Beach
In light of the recently-celebrated Mother’s Day, I’ve been thinking a lot about breakfast in bed. I told my husband that someday (in the distant future) when I am a mother I’d like breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day prepared by our kids. When I shared this desire at work today I was warned by a mom coworker that breakfast in bed is not all it’s cracked up to be. Joining the family at the table, she said, is much better. Well next time the occasion for breakfast in bed or a special breakfast around the table arises, try out this recipe for pancakes. These are truly delicious, light pancakes that can be flavored a million different ways, but are perfect with just pure maple syrup and since Mother’s Day 2012 is about a year away, you have plenty of time to perfect them for Mom next year.
