Tribute to Uncle Dan Smucker...
When Quinn and I would go up to Harrisonburg and stay with Uncle Dan he would make breakfast for us. And yes, this is what we would normally have...Pancakes & Gravy.
This was the very first time I had ever had it fixed this way. We were always used to biscuits and Gravy. Not at Uncle Dan's, you would get a special treat. I am going to miss him. And we are going to miss his laugh at family get together and miss visiting him when we are in Harrisonburg. It's just not the same...
There are so many memories though and this is one of the many that I wanted to share. To Uncle Dan...
This is the pancake recipe that I like to use...but you can use your own pancake recipe that you choose. It's just as good. =)
Makes about 8 (5-inch) pancakes: 4 servings
1 cup organic whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon organic cane sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup organic milk
2 tablespoons expeller pressed canola oil.
In the fry up your sausage and place in dish (I like to use my cast iron pans)
In the grease, age 2 tablespoons of flower
Then add your milk
Whisk together and add in your sausage.
You will need to mix together till it gets to a gravy like consistency. 5 minutes more or less.
