Pancake House Pancakes – My First Breakfast

Pancake House Pancakes

Pancake house pancakes originated far away from a pancake house. In Neolithic times, our ancestors combined ground wheat with birds eggs and goats milk. They could pour the resulting batter on a hot rock to cook it, and enjoy a tasty cake. Of course, as more refined methods surfaced, the modern pancake slowly surfaced.

Pancake House Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 5 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 tsp Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1/3 cups Melted Butter

Instructions

  1. Before you begin, start preheating your griddle. I get the best results using either cast iron or ceramic.
  2. First, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together by putting them in a bowl and use a whisk to mix them.
  3. Then, combine the milk, melted butter, and eggs together with a beater in a separate bowl.
  4. Pour the wet solution over the dry mixture, and use a spatula to make certain you get EVERYTHING mixed together. The batter should mix into a thick syrupy consistency with tiny bubbles.
  5. Now, gently pour about a fourth a cup onto the griddle at a time, I usuall get about six to eight depending on how hot my griddle is.
  6. Look for tiny bubbles on the top before you flip them.
  7. Once the steam begins to lessen, you should remove them from the griddle as quickly as possible. The longer they stay on the griddle, the more moisture cooks off, and dry pancakes taste pretty gross.

My Pancake House Pancakes

You can, and many pancake houses do, purchase ready to pour batter, or premixed powders. However, nothing quite beats hand mixed ingredients. Growing up, I used to watch my mom pour wheat into a grinder to make flour; then she sifted the ingredients together with care. She would hand mix everything and pour it straight from the bowl onto the griddle. Despite their name, I strongly doubt my mom’s pancakes will ever see the inside of a diner.

Do you have any memories of cooking? I’d love to hear about them!
