The last two days I’ve been falling asleep around 10:30 and waking up at 5 am. Although yesterday I went back to sleep from 7:30-9:15 am, I woke up again feeling like death. Today, I think I’ll just try staying awake through the day. The only nice thing about this weird early-rising insomnia is the extra time I have to make elaborate breakfasts. Today, I decided on pancakes and searched the web for a recipe that would mix up only a single serving. I found Single Lady Pancakes on The Corner Kitchen through Yummly. I topped my three pancakes w/bananas, chocolate chips, pecans, & coconut.
One of the great things about this recipe, I think, is that it is eggless and can easily be made vegan: substitute a non-dairy milk and a teaspoon of (apple cider) vinegar for the buttermilk in this recipe and cook with a non-butter oil. I’m not a vegan, but I find it handy to know how to cook vegan when I have friends or guests who have chosen a vegan lifestyle. Since I don’t drink (or buy) milk, my pancakes were vegan until I covered them in butter and chocolate!
I inhaled them in 10 minutes. I have six hours until my summer class meets. I don’t even know what to do with myself.
