For those of you just joining me, I had a bit of trouble last week with the combination of cold milk and hot butter. It was my first time making pancakes from scratch, and I did not succeed. So, after a little research on helpful cooking websites, I figured a way around my problem.
I mixed up the batter, then I slowly added in the butter. It still didn’t look exactly like it was supposed to, but it sure tasted good. I threw a handful of chocolate chips in after the butter as a bit of peace offering for my husband. This isn’t a marriage blog, mostly because my Hubby is a very private person, but it suffices to say that I had said something thoughtless and thought chocolate chips would help us both feel better. I was right.
I later used some of the chips in my weekly batch of friendship bread. I also tried coating the pans with cocoa powder instead of cinnamon, as the recipe calls for. It didn’t work as well for ease of removing the bread from the pan, but it tasted great.
I’m excited that I now know how to make two things from scratch. I’d like to try another quick bread. (Nothing that needs to be kneaded, please.)
