Syrup Saturday Constants

1.  Alliteration – ‘Syrup Saturday’ is one.  I will look for opportunities to use this throughout this blog.

2.  Love – The not so secret ingredient I add to all my cooking as a bonding agent.

3.  Syrup, Butter, Coffee, Calories, Babies, Breakfast and Family … not necessarily in that order.

4.  The spirit of Syrup Saturdays does not include (or preclude) long meal preparation time.

    “Sander’s simple syrup” (or “Sanders’ simple syrup”) works as an alliteration. Does it run afoul of any rules?

    • Greg says:

      No rules afouled but it is very similar to Sander Syrup. I added that yesterday. 1/2 a Syrup Saturday kudo awarded. If you wish to retract the alliteration you may do so without penalty.

      • Greg says:

        I promised Melissa that I would award her Kudo’s for Sander Syrup Saturday if I started awarding any at all. I have now awarded one (1/2 actually) so I am also going to award Melissa two (2) Syrup Saturday Kudos.

    Cook Time: 10 Minutes Ready In: 25 Minutes
    Servings: 4

    3/4 cup milk
    2 tablespoons white vinegar
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    cooking spray

    1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
    2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
    3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

      In lieu of the soured milk (although Gramma would be proud), you can use either buttermilk or plain yogurt.
