Instructions:

Heat a pan on medium heat with some oil. In a cereal bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Mix together and then the rest. Add more milk or more more flour until the batter is runny, but not watery. The thicker the batter, the denser and thicker the pancake. Cook the pancakes till you see bubbles, then flip them. Serve with syrup and butter. “No exceptions, unless it’s peanut butter.”

“The great thing about this recipe is how easily you can modify it. If you want a sweeter or cinnamon pancake,you can just add sugar or cinnamon. More oil will make the pancakes richer and more crispy. I personally like to make it with three eggs- for the protein and the taste. Feeling brave? Make it with buttermilk from the 99¢ store. Kale pancakes are not the abomination that they sound like. Of course you can’t go wrong chocolate chips or blueberries, but also don’t be afraid to try new things. Go wild, and stay nourished for finals.”
