Pancakes

You guys have lead me down some tasty roads so I'll throw another out there.

Anybody have an exceptional pancake recipe?

After nailing a stuffing at T-Giving and then rocking the Swerb sauce I want to cook breakfast and pull off the tri-fecta.

THANKS!

Recipe I've been using for 10 years. $$$ in the bank. It's all about the buttermilk baby:

2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup oil
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
splash or two of vanilla

Beat eggs, whisk in buttermilk then oil. Preheat griddle. Add remaining ingredients. Stir or whisk till lumps are gone. Pur 1/4 cupfuls on the griddle. Wait till bubbly on the edges, flip and cook to golden brown. Drench in butter and syrup. Serve with some good greasy breakfast meat and a big ass glass of OJ.

2 things.

1. A hint of cinnamon is a nice touch.
2. Leave a few lumps in the batter. Gives you a little extra fluff and thickness.

1. Go to bar
2. Get completely hammered
3. Call wife/cab for a ride
4. Stop at Perkins
5. Order mountains of flapjacks (make sure to call them flapjacks to the waitress...I'm sorry...server. Hilarity will ensue.)
6. Try the Belgian waffle too.

My method is tried and true, but I'm too old for that stupidity so I'm going to try some of Swerb's next chance I get.

Question:

How many does this make and how big are they?

Diameter is adequate. I can figure out the circumference and area from that.

16-ish. Each roughly 11.34 cubic centimeters in size.

I'll tweak this by suggesting to substitute melted butter for the oil. Also, do not over beat - agree with Pup that lumps are a good thing. Too much mixing does something to the gluten in the flour (saw it explained by Alton Brown once) and then you may get gluey as opposed to fluffy. Remember the flour water paste you made as a kid?

Also, let the batter "rest" for 15 minutes or so to let the baking power/soda do their thing.

Great tips Matt. Never done that with melted butter instead of oil. Probably much better. You skim the fat off the top after you melt it?

Drop this collective pancake recipe in the TCF Cookbook under the "Hangover Comfort Food" section.

Wonder if melted lard would be even better then butter, since lard>butter>oil at least when it comes to pastry crusts...

Less calories too, plus don't we all love our fats saturated!!!!

Funniest mental image in a long time. Those days are mostly in the past for me, but I will definitely partake of some flapjacks should the opportunity present itself.

Made these last weekend and again this morning. Delicious. But my batter has been awfully thin both times, getting some really thin pancakes. Are they supposed to be this way?

Definitely. Can add a little more flour if you like em thicker.

Thanks Swerb. Figured out the biggest culprit - was using powdered buttermilk, which requires water. Thinned 'em out too much. Bought regular buttermilk and tried again today, they're perfect. Awesome recipe!
