I made pancakes last night for the kids for the first time. Bryan has made them for us a few times and of course, hits it out of the ball park but he was at work and I was in the mood to cook/try something new.
I pulled out the box of Bisquick and quickly scanned the back to see what ingredients it needed and what all went in to making them. 1 cup of Bisquick, 1 cup of milk, 2 eggs, and then mix all together. I can do this. And I did. I sprayed my skillet with Pam and ladled the batter into the pan in a nice round circle. I had heard that once the batter starts to bubble that meant it was ready to be flipped but I didn't really see any bubbles. The box said the edges would start to crisp up and when I felt it, that was indeed happening so I flipped away.
Each pancake was coming out perfectly brownish/tan with no burnt parts. I was super excited! I noticed when I felt the pancakes though, they seemed kind of dense. They certainly weren't all light and fluffy like Bryan's normally were.
I checked the box and saw the expiration date was 2011. Holy crap.
I tried one and it tasted fine so I went ahead and fed them to the kiddos anyway and no one complained so yay me right? Right?
