My Saturday mornings typically consist of sitting on the couch with a cup of coffee while watching HGTV and convincing myself to work out. My Sunday mornings tend to be a repeat of Saturday except swap out Friends for HGTV and getting ready for church for working out. Knowing that, you can see how I always believed these productive weekend mornings you hear about – you know, where breakfast is more than a bowl of cereal – were fabled. And then I lived one.
It was a full blown crazy productive morning. The kind where you fully intend to spend the morning on the couch with a cup of coffee and Friends, but your husband is in the yard setting up the sprinklers at 7:30. And that, of course, makes you feel like a total slacker so you find yourself starting a load of laundry and making pancakes – while still in your pajamas of course.
Nailed it. I doubled the recipe thinking we’d have enough left over for the husband to reheat throughout the week. That didn’t happen. What did happen, however, was me making these again two days later. And two days after that. And two days after that. Seriously. I’ve made these at least four times (in muffin form because, as it turns out, I do not have the patience to flip pancakes) and now have the recipe memorized.
I did the banana version of these, but since all I had was plain yogurt, I added a teaspoon of vanilla (2 teaspoons when I doubled the recipe). I also added some cinnamon and mashed up a banana to add to the batter rather than do slices because slices make me gag. These are great in muffin form (or “breakfast cupcakes” as the husband likes to call them) and reheat like a champ in the microwave.
This is how a starving husband attempts to move things along.
