    pancakes please

    pancakes please



    We holidayed in Florida a couple of years ago and every morning Connor (my son) enjoyed pancakes and maple syrup for breakfast. I have searched fro American Pancake recipes but so far he's not enjoyed any as much as those we had in florida. I have maple syrup but no pancakes to pour it on

    I wonder if the reason you haven't found a recipe as good is if it's possible the restaurant used a buttermilk pancake recipe. I grew up having buttermilk pancakes and there is a big difference.

    I will look and see if I have a recipe somewhere. But don't know if I will, I haven't made pancakes from scratch in ages.

    pancakes please



    Buttermilk Pancakes

    1 egg
    1 cup buttermilk
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 cup plain flour
    1 TBS sugar
    1 TBS cooking oil
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    Beat the egg and then add the buttermilk and soda.

    Stir in flour, sugar, oil, baking powder and salt. Stir until blended. Try to get any lumps out but don't overdo it on the stirring.

    Heat a griddle or frying pan with a little oil or butter. You want medium heat and for the oil/butter to be hot but not burned.

    Dip out enough batter to make pancakes about 3 to 4 inches around. You can, of course, make big ones or little silver dollar sized.

    When the edges "set" and have bubbles, flip the pancakes. You only want to flip once, so don't jump the gun.

    As you're cooking, you'll probably need to add a little more oil or butter as you go. Just add small amounts as needed.

    You can keep a plate warm in the oven and complete the whole batch or serve them right from the frying pan as they're done if you have a very informal family.

    This recipe makes 8 to 10 medium pancakes or enough for 4 people unless they're hungry people. With teen boys here, I just double the recipe.

    Did you get a fluid cup or a dry measure cup? You actually need both even for the pancake recipe above.
