Perhaps a little off topic for water aerobics, but given that you'll be burning more calories this month, why not enjoy some carb-loading pancakes on a Sunday morning? I have been laming these for my kids every weekend for quite a while now. I found tis recipe online months ago, and ever since I got my new Kitchen-Aid mixer, it is a match made in heaven. The pancakes are so fluffy and delicious, you really must give them a try. And then go work out in the water and burn 'em off. After you wait a good half hour of course, you know, so as not to get a cramp in the water.
3 cups flour
6 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cup milk (any milk will do, buttermilk is super yummy)
2 Tablespoons superfine sugar
6 Tablespoons melted butter
3 large eggs
Some oil or butter for cooking
Pure maple syrup
In your stand mixer, whisk together milk and sugar until foamy. Meanwhile, as that is mixing, melt your butter. Add the eggs to the mixer and keep mixing on medium speed. Next, add in the melted butter, slowly.

While the batter is mixing, start warming your pans. I use two cast iron skillets, since I make huge pancakes, I need more space. Warm them up on medium heat.

Serve with pure maple syrup and butter.
