Pancake Squares

Many of you found your way to my corner of the interwebs via a little piece I wrote about a surprisingly awesome Anakin Skywalker toy. If you’re hoping for more along those lines, you’ll have to excuse this temporary lapse into domesticity.

Fret not, good denizens, I’ve got more pop-culture ponderings to share in the days ahead.

But first, we must reflect on the scrumptious gems known as Pancake Squares. Pancake Squares
This, friends, is what delicious looks like.

Take a minute to let your eyes linger on these. And just think, this is before adding the butter and syrup. <wipes drool from chin>

They’re so fluffy, I’m gonna die!

I stumbled across the recipe on Pinterest, originally in this post by Big Red Kitchen.
We all know that Pinterest recipes can be iffy…I’ve run into as many “misses” as “hits” (if not more). These, though, are a definite “hit” for me.

If you’re looking for a 10-minute meal, you might want to stick with the boxed mixes. It does take a bit more time to gather the ingredients for these, and you’ve got to wait for them to bake; the extra agony is entirely worth it, though!

Pancake Squares

2 Tbs. melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1 large egg
1 Tbs. sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

• Preheat oven to 350°. You can use the heating time to assemble your ingredients.

•  Mix together milk, butter and egg in a good-sized bowl (I did not use my stand mixer for this endeavor). Add sugar and beat in flour/baking powder/salt until incorporated.

• Pour batter into greased 8×8 pan. I’m told you can double the recipe and bake in a 9×13 pan.

• Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown (I didn’t want mine too well done so I started the toothpick test around 18 minutes).

  2. So what I’m trying to say is that I don’t mind these relapses!
