Dahlia-Cakes

Here’s a great idea for little picky eaters.  This recipe was given to me by my friend Toni and it is good for big picky eaters too.  😉  Thanks, Toni!

“Dahlia goes through these “no I won’t eat that” phases every once in a while and when she does I let her eat pancakes more often because they are her favorite.  To supplement the vitamins and fiber she misses I add 2 even scoops of a soy-based protien shake meal replacement powder that has a good vitamin count in it and a 1/4 cup of wheat germ.  To make sure they taste good, I throw in a teaspoon of vanilla and blend really well into a just add water pancake mix.  I do a batch of 20 small pancakes and freeze the rest so she can have 3-4 in the morning and a snack when ever she wants. To reheat them, just microwave for about a minute and they come out nice and hot.  Pour on the syrup and she is ready to go!  It works reall well around my house and you never have to feel bad about your kid snacking on too many pancakes 😀  If you are using a boxed mix or homemade you would use what ever the original recipe calls for plus 1/4 of a cup of milk or flour.  And make sure to note that ALL the dry ingredients need to be blended together BEFORE any liquids get blended in!  It really effects the flavor for some weird reason lol 🙂

*Note: You can also reheat frozen pancakes in the toaster or toaster oven, just like frozen waffles.
