Pancakes Revisited

Sometime in the past I posted a pancake recipe. I have not had consistent luck with that one so I am posting one that works and will supersede that previous post as far as pancake rights go.

I still fucking love pancakes. Knock yourself out with these ones, baby.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 tbsp melted shortening or butter
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs

In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Except for the eggs, in a medium bowl, mix together wet ingredients. Combine wet and dry. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Incorporate, but don’t over mix. For even fluffier pancakes, let batter sit in fridge for at least an hour.

Heat a skillet (griddle, omelette pan whatever) to a medium-high heat. To test if it’s hot enough drop some batter on it. It should sizzle nicely. Ladle some batter on in a circular pattern to your desired size. I say fuck silver dollar size, make ’em at least 7 inches a across. Cook ’til golden brown, about 4 min, on one side. Another two or three on the other. While they’re still hot, spread some fresh butter on top.

Serve with whatever. I like maple syrup.
