General Conference Pancakes!
Today is the first half of The 180th L.D.S. World General Conference Broadcast! Woo-Hoo! I love Conference weekend... figuratively sitting at the foot of my prophet leaders, listening to their words of wisdom, warning, and counsel. It is a fond time of great spiritual feasting! And add to it the Easter holiday tomorrow as well?! It's almost more joy than I can handle! It feels good to truly make Christ the center of my celebrations this Saturday and Sunday.
So what do flapjacks have to do with Jesus? Well, nothing really. But I always find it a fun tradition to partake of pancakes when Conference comes around. So I fell back on my favorite breakfast standby in How It All Vegan! by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer: "Classic Pancakes" on page 44. My Jordan and I have adapted the recipe slightly to our liking, nicknaming it "Padawan Pancakes". But mostly, we stay close to the original. This time I did use a little quinoa flour, also some almond milk instead of soy milk; unusual changes. But the end result still tasted delicious! I generously coated them with Earth Balance Spread and Pure Maple Syrup. Yumm!
Well, I'm off to enjoy me some more televised Conference! The weekend's talks are broken into four two-hour sessions and the second session is about to start. Sadly, it feels like the entire program is nearly half over and really, it's only just begun. But I always have the next broadcast in October to look forward to. Rest assured, I won't wait until then to feast on another round of pancakes! :)
