Normally we only shoot two episodes per featured business here at HudsonCounty60, but with Casey Repetti, Personal Chef and Hoboken Mom, we needed more. Mostly I wanted to eat more, but that's neither here, nor there. So in honor of Father's Day, Casey taught me how to make the most perfectly airy, fluffy pancakes, that you can add any cereal to.
If you're anything like my family, you always have some sugary cereal stocked in your pantry, but from what I hear, most households have granolas and fiber rich cereals at the ready. That's cool too, I guess. I'm sure you could use those in place of Froot Loops, but I doubt it'll be as fun, TBH.
As soon as we cut on filming this episode, my cameraman/director, SanMartin, along with my husband, Matt, both jumped out, forks in hand to absolutely destroy these pancakes. I should also add that although I don't actually love pancakes in general, these were so amazing, I definitely ate my fair share.
Casey’s Froot Loop Pancakes
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1 cup of ground Froot Loops, plus a little more for garnish
Powdered sugar, syrup, fruit, chocolate chips, jelly.. whatever toppings you desire!
Mix together all the dry ingredients, making sure there are no lumps.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and vanilla until combined and smooth. Pour in the melted butter and stir.
Carefully pour the milk mixture into the flour bowl and stir to combine. Do not over stir, some lumps are ok
Spray your griddle or frying pan with nonstick spray and turn up to medium high. Spoon about 1/4 cup of mix into the pan. When you see tiny bubbles form around the outside of your pancake and some in the middle, its time to flip. It will only need about 40 seconds on the other side. Continue this with all of your mix, you can make them larger or smaller.. Adjust your flame as you see fit, everyones stoves are different!
