Here in Georgia most public school children went back to school sometime this week. One of the challenges of having school age children is breakfast. Some of them have to leave so early that it is hard to get a decent breakfast in before school. I know my son leaves at 6:45, which is about thirty minutes later than last year when I was still teaching, so breakfast is a really difficult. This pancake in a mug is the perfect solution. It takes less than five minutes to make, and tastes just like a regular pancake. In a pinch, since it is in a mug, you could even take it with you – well, not on the bus if you are making in for your kids and they ride the bus, but in a car, definitely.
This recipe contains a whole egg for each pancake making it quite filling. I didn’t put any add-ins in this recipe, but I am sure it would be great to add a few blueberries or chocolate chips. I also want to warn you that it will be very hot when it first comes out, so you might want to let it cool a bit, especially if you are serving it to children.
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- 2 Tbsps. buttermilk
- 1 egg

- Swirl the butter around in the mug to butter the sides.
- Add remaining ingredients and stir briskly with a fork until all is well combined.

- Serve with butter and maple syrup, if desired. Pancake will be very hot, so be careful.
