On the Target product check on TV3 tonight, they road-tested store bought pancake mixes. The host pointed out that the most basic pancake recipes only have 4 ingredients, so it’s a little disturbing when the ingredients listed on a pre-mix constitute an entire paragraph!
So in an endeavour to save you from the supermarket shelves, and maybe encourage you to branch out from the Edmonds Cook Book, I share with you our favourite pancake recipe (Dave should know a good pancake, seeing he grew up eating off the griddle an’ all!)
1 c. flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. sugar
1 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine dry ingredients. Add milk, egg and oil. Mix until smooth. Heat non-stick pan over medium heat until water beads. Do not oil. Pour pancake mixture in 1/4 cup amounts. Turn when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Remove from heat when pancake stops steaming.
These are THE BEST pancakes, we have them every Sunday. This week Dave added chocolate chips and they were divine. I love them with butter, lemon and sugar – that’s definitely the kiwi-connection as DJ considers this the most absurd topping ever.
