Peppermint Pancake

As promised, the second of my Holiday recipe roundup.  Now that we are in the “legit” wintertime, all I want is Holiday pancakes.  Between Eggnog, gingerbread and now peppermint I guess I have my heart set until New Years…

I had debated how on earth I was going to get the “peppermint flavor”.  For me personally, I’m not a huge peppermint fan but I do enjoy it now and again.  I quested around Wal-Mart and found they even sold peppermint extract flavor..as well as every flavor imaginable from root beer to butter.  Seriously, when you go to Wal-Mart check out their baking section.  I thought vanilla extract was the only thing they sold but boy was I wrong.

Ingredients:

½ cup flour

1 egg

½ cup milk-1 cup milk depending on the consistency you like your pancakes

2 tsp peppermint extract

1 tablespoon oil

Chocolate chips…It seemed appropriate at the time (chocolate and peppermint)

Sweetener to taste and for me I like sweet things so I added about ½ cup stevia.  I’m not joking.   I don’t tell lies.

I enjoy making towers of cakes.

I actually wasn’t sure how I would like these pancakes, seeing as peppermint isn’t my favorite flavor in the world but I loved them!  I think it was combination of the chocolate and peppermint.  So yes, they are a win.

Question for you:

1.       Chocolate and peppermint or just one or the other?

2.       Favorite Holiday flavor?
