Glamping Breaky II

We have been enjoying our vacation in Florida!
Another great breakfast is pancakes,
especially with some fresh maple syrup we brought from home.
These cakes are so fluffy and yummy.

My sister Evelyn gave this recipe to me some time ago
and it's our favourite.
She calls it their cottage pancake recipe.

I mixed the dry ingredients at home so that only the 
egg, oil and milk needs adding to prepare.

Pancakes at the Cook’s Cottage

1¼ Cup sour milk (if no sour milk, substitute by putting a cap of vinegar into measured milk and let stand for 5 minutes).
1 Egg
2 Tbsp. oil
In separate bowl:
1 Cup Flour
1 Tbsp. Sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
Mix well – add the sour milk and beat.  Let stand till thickened.
Pour onto well oiled hot pan or griddle.   This recipe makes approx. 7 pancakes.

Morning walks before breakfast couldn't be more pleasant!

More about this to come ....

Till next time .... 


  1. I don't know what I like better the pancakes or that walk on the beach. I think I'll take both.

  2. That is a beautiful white-sand beach...very nice. And perfect for walking off those pancakes 🥞!

  3. I agree with Ellen! Both the pancakes and the walk on the beach look incredibly tempting!
    Enjoy your trip! (Although I'll bet you're missing that sweet little granddaughter!)

  4. Greetings...from one white sand beach to another. We are enjoying the sand and the sea in Mexuco this week. Have fun...and keep those breakfast recipes coming! :)

  5. What fun spending time on a beach! We love home made pancakes, too! Hope you continue to have fun.

  6. I'm going to try your pancake recipe, only split the flour 50/50 (half white whole wheat flour, half all-purpose flour). Thanks for the recipe.

  7. I don't know what's more beautiful - that beach or the pancakes! Both look amazing!


And so that was Christmas!
