{Snow Pancakes}

We had a couple of inches of snow last night, so for breakfast we had snow pancakes.  A couple of days ago I saw a post and they had made snow pancakes.  First time I had ever heard of them.  So this morning with  a fresh snow thought it would be the perfect time to try them with our grandsons.  They thought it sounded interesting to have pancakes with snow in them.  My DH found a recipe for Granny Miller's Snow Pancakes. 

They like M&M's in their pancakes.  One likes butter and sugar the other syrup.
The pancakes were so light and fluffy and very good!
We will now be having snow pancakes when the boys are here, if we have had a fresh snow fall.  Now that I can get fresh milk will have to save some cream and try snow ice cream....yum!

Granny Miller Snow Pancakes

2 c. flour
1 T. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. white sugar
2 eggs...well beaten
1~1/2 c. milk

In a large bowl sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together.
Combine eggs and milk together.
Slowly add milk and egg mixture to dry ingredients.
Stir well and set aside.
The batter will be thick.
Get griddle ready, grease lightly.
When griddle is hot fold the snow into the above batter, mix well.
Pour pancake mix onto the griddle, when they start to bubble all over on top, flip over.
Serve with your favorite toppings.

How nice! By the way, we always made snow ice cream with milk, eggs, vanilla and sugar and snow, of course. Never did have cream for it and it was yummy.

Okay, that recipe looks like fun! I had to giggle alittle when I saw the title, because I'm currently reading a homesteading biography and they speak of skeeter cakes, when I read further I realized it wasn't something fun like your snow pancakes, it was literally pancakes and because the skeeters were so thick along a river bottom in UT they couldn't keep the skeeters out of the batter. I know, I know, YUCK, Double YUCK!!!!

Not to get off topic, just hit me and I thought I'd share. :o)
