Heat griddle over medium heat.
1.5 C of general purpose flour (188 grams)
3 table spoons of sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of aluminum free baking powder (Rumford) (don't even bother with the other stuff, put some pop tarts in the toaster and forget about it)
2 lg eggs at room temp
1 1/4 C of milk
3 tablespoons of melted butter.
1 teaspoon of vanilla bourbon
Mix dry ingredients. Whisk eggs, vanilla, milk and drizzle in melted butter. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix with a fork until it just forms a batter and let set for a minute. Batter will be thick and foamy if your baking powder was fresh.
Drop a little butter on the griddle, when it's melted pour out some batter. Turn when bottom is golden brown (top will look pretty wet)
May have to lower heat a little if center isn't cooked when bottom turns golden brown.
They get a nice little crust on the outside, fluffy in the middle and don't absorb syrup like a sponge. And the keep will in the frig for tomorrow and nuke

The above pancake recipe sounds outstanding.Last summer I snagged a heavy Army stainless steel griddle that is the perfect size for the Cawley Lemay wood stove. A batch of those pancakes would be perfect for a test run of the stove and griddle.You have got to admit that any food tasts better with a wisp of wood smoke in the air. I know that to be true because thats what they taught me in Boy Scouts in the 1950's. Thanks for posting. Mike

Heading to a pancake house (all you can eat!!) tomorrow, only open Feb 15-Apr 15 when the sap is running. Busy place!

Pa Papa

I am just finishing up the pancakes I cooked on my Warm Morning made from your recipe. Late breakfast. I had to run off to work this morning and had no time even for a cup of coffee. Not bad. I'll keep that recipe and stop buying the 'Mixes". Thanks for sharing.

NAPA Crossroads News flash......11:45 AM.........Cokehead's wife came home from work and tried the pancakes made from Pa Papa's recipe. She says' "Not Bad", which from her is high praise. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming......

Here's a favorite pancake recipe of ours to add to pa papa's thread. They're different than buttermilk flapjacks. We like them once in a while, makes us believe we're eating healthy :)

Four Grain Pancakes
    dry ingredients, mix'em together
    • 1 Cup whole-wheat flour
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup cornmeal, stone ground if you have it
    • 1/4 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking rolled oats
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder - see pa papa's warning ;)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • if you want, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • just a little pinch of freshly grated or ground nutmeg
    Wet ingredients, mix'em together
    • 1 3/4 cups milk
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted melted butter - it's a half of a stick
    • 1/4 cup of honey
    • 3 large eggs

Put the dry and wet goodies together and stir until they're mixed. Don't overdo it. Cook on a buttered griddle, low heat, and watch the first few. Because of the honey and sugar they brown up quicker than usual pancakes. I've done them on the Vigilant but I need to keep the griddle up on bricks to get a low heat. Being a beekeeper, I like mine with honey and maple syrup drizzled together on top ;) I like the left overs too - just pop em into the toaster on low heat and they're almost as good as fresh off the griddle.

I've always preferred buttermilk to regular milk. And the pancakes have to be fried in bacon grease.

Ooooooo...I can feel your arteries clogging from here but it sounds really good. I tend to add light cream and butter to everything I can. That isn't much better. :roll:
