We ran out of milk the day before grocery day. I thought it was good timing. Since there's no milk for cereal in the morning, I'll just make pancakes. Oops, I forgot you need milk to make pancakes too! Fortunately, we had a carton of rice milk, so I adapted this great recipe from allrecipes.com (Eating cereal with rice milk would be out of the question for some members of the family). It's the fluffiest pancake I've ever made. I'm sure the original tastes just as good. :)
Rice Milk Pancakes
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp rice milk, original or vanilla flavored
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 pear cored and sliced
1 tbsp sugar
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix rice milk and Greek yogurt in a large bowl until smooth. Add the egg and the butter to the milk mixture and whisk. Add the dry ingredients to the milk mixture. Mix until just incorporated. Cook pancakes on a skillet or a griddle.
Prepare the pears. Sprinkle the sugar on the sliced pears in a small sauce pan. Cook on medium low heat for 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Top pancakes with confection's sugar and/or maple syrup. Serve with the pears on the side.
