- Today I'm gonna show you guys how to make a breakfast milkshake. I used to have these at slumber parties all the time, so I'm excited to show you guys. Let's get started. I'm gonna start by baking my pancakes and we're gonna do our dry ingredients first and combine them all in a bowl. So this is some AP flour, a little sugar, and baking powder, and then to that we're gonna go ahead and add our wet ingredients. We're gonna do some melted butter, our one egg, and some milk. I like to pour about half of it first. We're gonna go in with our whisk, get everything nice and combined, and then we'll continue adding the milk as it goes. The egg, all of our milk here. And you wanna make sure it's nice an incorporated, but some lumps are perfect for pancakes. That's where the aired bubbles burst in. All right, so our grill is nice and hot, we're just gonna take some butter, our pat of butter on here, get it nice and melted for our pancakes. We'll just take our ladle full and start assembling these little guys. And we're gonna take out a plate so that we can land our pancakes right here. In high school, I had a friend who I found out, for breakfast, her mom would make her pancakes with milkshakes. One day, I just decided to just cut out the middleman and make a whole entire milkshake out of it. Yay, and again, don't push it down. You want it to, it starts going up and I feel like people then start squishing it and that's the whole point is for them to be airy and soft. Aw, that color's perfect. I'm gonna pop these in the fridge so that they cool for a few minutes, and then we'll get started on our milkshake. My pancakes have cooled and we are ready to toss these in to make a shake. So, I like to tear them up and toss them in the blender, give it a little help. We're gonna add in our ice cream in keeping with the fact that my friend's mom always used vanilla ice cream. A little splash of vanilla and we'll go in with our milk. All right, and now blend it all together, get ready for your milkshake dance. ♫ Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake I'm so excited. Let's try it. And of course, you can't have pancakes without maple syrup, and you can't have a milkshake without whipped cream, so we have maple syrup whipped cream, okay. So good, just like I remembered it. The syrup, the pancakes, breakfast to go.
