Father's Day Pancakes.

I am such a slacker. Yesterday was hubby's birthday, which we spent all day at the beach, in the hot Hawaiian sun, playing hard - did I mention ALL day? Needless to say, we were exhausted. happy but exhausted. so we had a low-key, laid-back kind of Sunday today. It was perfect in a way because we relaxed, slept in, and did it all as a family.  family time, check.

I am a slacker, because I did nothing ahead of time to prepare for this very important Sunday called Father's Day. I wanted to make him a amazing 3-course breakfast and have a beautifully crafted card waiting for him when he woke up. Our cupboards are pretty sparse and I had no time to bring out the glue gun, and to top it all off, hubs was up before I was, as always.

So this is what he got: 1) pancakes // made from scratch, with love and white chocolate chips. 2) hot chocolate // also made from scratch, with love and a touch of cinnamon. 3) Cream Collon // no, not colon, his favorite Japanese snack. 4) card // handmade by wifey with artwork from kiddo.

These pancakes are light, fluffy, and perfect served with pure maple syrup and real butter. PLus, they have white chocolate chips in them, so who wouldn't love them. Make them for your family on any occasion and they'll all be happy campers.

Fluffy White Chocolate Pancakes

2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
3 Tbsp melted butter
White chocolate chips
(also delicious with craisins, or fresh blueberries!)
  1. Separate the egg yolk and whites. Whip up egg whites til stiff peaks form and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Make a crater in the middle and pour the milk, slightly beaten egg yolks, and melted butter. Mix together with a fork or whisk, do not over mix. 
  3. Gently fold in the fluffy egg whites. Cook on a griddle or non-stick skillet, over low-heat. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
I'll save my hot chocolate recipe for another time. But for now, good night, and Happy Father's Day to all you fathers and fathers-to-be, especially the very special men in my life that are shining examples to my two little boys. xoxo
