Lazy Weekend Mason Jar Pancakes

Every day may feel like a lazy weekend while we're sheltering in place. But each weekend morning, my family has made it part of our new routine to make breakfast together. My boys are big fans of pancakes and after numerous mornings of cleaning up bowls, measuring cups, measuring spoons and messy counters, I had to find a new and easier way to make pancakes. That's where the idea of using a mason jar comes in to make Lazy Weekend Mason Jar Pancakes!

By loading up a mason jar with all the pancake ingredients, it eliminates some extra dirty dishes and saves time. Just a simple shake up and pour... and it's only a few minutes before enjoying some delicious pancakes. Feel free to be creative by adding your choice of mix ins such as chocolate chips, fresh berries, mashed bananas or even chopped nuts!

Lazy Weekend Mason Jar Pancakes

1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½  teaspoon salt

1. Gather all ingredients and measure out.

2. Put the milk, egg and oil in a 32 oz jar. 

3. Put the lid on tight and shake until well mixed. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to the jar with the milk and egg mixture. 

4. Put the lid on and shake vigorously for about 2 minutes until everything is combined.

5. Lightly oil a griddle or frying pan and heat to medium temperature. Pour the batter onto the griddle.  Use about ¼ of a cup of batter for each pancake. When the edges look dry and the bubbles on the surface of the pancakes begin to pop flip the pancakes over to cook the other side.

6. Once flipped, cook the pancakes another 2 to 3 minutes until they are lightly browned on both sides. Serve hot with syrup and your favorite fruit.
