Fantastic! I made it a stir fry with broccoli, carrots, and onion served over brown rice. What leftovers?

Pork Fried Rice

It's true that what they serve as take out doesn't taste like real fried rice. I'd never had it before let alone made it, and it was a winner! I upped the butter, used a bag of frozen mixed veggies, half a Vidalia and the chicken from one of the drumsticks I was making as the main course. For a little extra chicken flavor I poured some broth over the veggies and let it cook off. I also used more rice and increased the ingredients for the last step.

Awesome! My husband made a point to tell me in between bites that he approved and I ate two instead of my usual one. I don't know which kind of vinegar most people use but I ended up with a combination of apple cider and white distilled, was just enough to finish off both bottles.

It's half gone and it isn't even cooled yet! The smell is fantastic! It does call for too much sugar, I backed off the white sugar to 3/4 of a cup and it was still on the too sweet side. After reading several recipes I used this one for the base but tossed the peach slices in lemon juice before I put them in the pan and used a teaspoon of both almond and vanilla extracts. Then for the crumble I used 1/2 c. of whole wheat flour and 1/2 c. of oats. It is something that we will be enjoying for a long time to come!

I used this as a basic guideline. Also didn't have buttermilk so I took 6oz of milk and splashed some lemon juice into it and after a couple of minutes poured it into a mixture of roughly mashed bananas and 6 oz of strawberry yogurt and added all wheat flour (will try the half white flour next time to see if it reduces density) They were good enough to eat without syrup, but I also mixed up some sliced strawberries and sugar to pour over them. I meant to add vanilla and will next time, also want to make sure the pancakes are thin enough to cook through without burning.

We also found it extremely dry and crumbly and I wish I'd read the reviews before I followed this recipe.

Me and my girls loved these pancakes! I served up the first batch with a little dollop of Cool Whip on top to make them more festive for the kids. My 4 year old ate 4 of them! I used the variation that RobnMandy posted and after the first batch were a little too thick for me, I added another half cup of milk. They didn't brown as well, not sure if it was the griddle or the extra milk, but they were still very tasty. Definitely do not toss the leftovers! They were good later, too!
