Well, I was feeling like pancakes and I thought it might be fun to try our own version of Mimi Mouse pancakes at home. Any pancake recipe will do, but I found this recipe from Allrecipes. I made some tweaks, though. (Hubby says I never follow recipes!)
I used half whole wheat flour and half AP flour. I also used half buttermilk, half skim milk. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar. I added a splash of vanilla extract and a few shakes of cinnamon. OK, I made a lot of tweaks.
But my biggest tweak was the presentation. Mimi's Cafe only gives you pancakes with a side of fruit. My pancakes may not be the prettiest... let's face it, they are like the ugly stepsisters... But there's potential here!
