I am a Brooklyn gal. My middle name is Lox. Lox is smoked salmon and I think, it is wonderful. I know, most people eat lox in a bagel, maybe with cream cheese. I do that too. I also use lox in soups, salads, eggs and with vegetables. When I came across this recipe, it had my name on it, Lox. So, as Lox, I changed the recipe to add the smoked salmon to the egg mixture rather than on top of it.

My husband usually turns down pancakes for breakfast and happily has his cereal. He surprised me, this time, when he heartily agreed to pancakes. I am, always happy, when we have pancakes so there were two enthusiastic participants, awaiting breakfast. I debated adding apples to this recipe. What are apples without cinnamon, what is cinnamon without apples. Actually cinnamon is just fine without the apples so I stuck to what I expected to be a plain pancake.
Actually, the cinnamon really enhanced the pancakes. My husband ate them plain and I added a little syrup. We both left the table, satisfied.
Cinnamon Pancakes (adapted from Taste of Home)
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon Canola oil
- 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Maple syrup (optional)
- In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- In another bowl, combine the egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.
- In a lightly greased skillet, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls; press lightly to flatten. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Serve with syrup. Yield: 2 servings.
Note: I used a quarter cup until I found that by letting the batter run off a regular tablespoon, the pancakes were rounder. I lived it up with a little butter with the maple syrup.
