Let me start by saying this: I DID IT!
I have been trying to avoid buying pancake mix for a while. I never understood why their were so many brand names in the supermarket. Some add eggs, some only water. It was all too silly to me. So today I did it. I made pancakes from scratch. You wouldn’t believe how proud of my self I am. (It’s a little absurd actually.)
Here’s the recipe I used. I read tons on the web and came up with this one. If its a little too thick add water tablespoon by tablespoon til a little thinner.
2 cups milk
2 TBS white vinegar
4 TBS melted butter
4 tsp vanilla
2 cups All purpose flour
2 TBS sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
oil for cooking
First: In a small bowl beat eggs. Add milk, vinegar, melted butter and vanilla. Mix well.
Second: In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Third: Add egg mixture to flour mixture mix ‘til smooth and let batter rest a five minutes or so.
Fourth: Lightly with oil pan and wipe out excess. Heat pan on medium heat.
Fifth: Pour 2 oz (¼C) of batter onto the pan. (Batter is thicker than store bought; you might have to spread out with a utensil)
Sixth: Cook ‘til bubbles form. Turn over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. (Not too dark)
Seventh: Serve with a pat of butter on top and your favorite syrup.
(Makes about 18 medium pancakes)
