conference weekend... Sunday brunch-

Sunday is not only conference, it is also my amazing mother's birthday. Nothing better than a house full of family eating great food, giving you gifts & showering you with love. Or at least that is the plan. Here is what we are thinking food wise. I'll post a recipe a day until Sunday. Try a few of these this weekend. I promise you won't be disappointed!

{dani's sourdough pancakes}

in a large bowl mix...

1 cup warm milk (not hot)
1 package yeast
1 TBSP sugar
add flour to the consistency of pancake batter

mix well & let rest 10-15 minutes.

-if you are going to double the recipe you would start that at this point-

2 cups water
2 cups flour

mix well & loosely cover.  do not refrigerate!  let sit out at room temperature overnight.
the next day add...

1/4 cup oil
2 beaten eggs

*mix well*

sift together-
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
add to the rest of the mix & stir just until combined.  DO NOT OVER MIX!
pour onto a hot griddle & cook just like any other  pancakes.  enjoy with kalleen's Vanilla Cream Syrup.

{kalleen's vanilla cream syrup}

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

in a medium sauce pan stir all ingredients until sugar is dissolved.  let cool slightly & transfer to the blender.  blend on high power with lid on loosely.  cool completely as the syrup will thicken as it cools.
