Here Comes Winter Storm Nika~ Celebrate With Snow Pancakes

 Here comes Winter Storm Nika ~ so we might as well celebrate!
These pancakes are fun to make and they taste light and fluffy.


2 cups of flour
1-tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 eggs well beaten
1-½ cups of milk

  • In a large bowel mix and sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. 

  • Combine the eggs and milk in another bowl.

  • Slowly add the milk  and egg mixture to the dry ingredients.
  • Stir well and set aside. The batter will be thick.
  • Next grease your griddle and get it good and hot.
  • When the griddle is hot, quickly go outdoors and scoop up fresh snow.

  • Fold in 1-½ cups of new snow and mix well.

  • Cook the pancakes as usual.

*Tips For Snow Pancakes*
Old snow won’t do.Use only fresh, light and newly fallen immaculate snow. Small amounts of naturally occurring ammonia in fresh snow acts as a leaving agent and causes the pancakes to rise.
Ammonia in new snow will evaporate very soon after it has fallen.
