On the vegan side of things, I've been eating whatever is most convenient in the moment this week, so this morning I decided to make a decent breakfast. Ever since eating that delicious brunch at Root, I've been craving some vanilla pancakes. I'm notoriously bad at making pancakes. I can't seem to figure out what the appropriate time is for flipping, so my pancakes never actually look like pancakes. It's why I prefer making waffles. I found this recipe for Very Vanilla Pancakes, and the pictures looked lovely, so I decided to try it. The batter was super thick, which made it quite easy to flip these pancakes. The recipe made about six. They didn't taste bad, per se, but they weren't really the consistency of pancakes. It was more like eating a vanilla scone, because they were very dense, rather than fluffy. Another pancake attempt gone wrong. What can you do. At least my cat is basking in the sun and purring like a machine.
