lolNow there is familiar ground.:smile: My daughter, when she was 8 or 10 years old, used to bring two or three of her friends home on a weekend for a sleep-over. I'm not sure when it was that they actually slept. Seems to me they were giggling and chattering the whole night.
For breakfast it was pancakes or waffles. At that time we had a fairly large stainless steel frying pan in which I could cook two medium or four small pancakes. Those four little girls would happily keep me busy making pancakes for at least an hour and a half.
In recent years my kids bought me a non-stick electric griddle that will turn out six good sized pancakes at one time.
My kids are grown up and married now, with children of their own, but once in a while we still see the pancake gang and occasionally, they get me to make pancakes again. Much easier with the griddle.:smile:
Our girls think I make then best ever. I make one pancake at a time. They are about 10" in diameter and about an inch thick. And I, like Dex, add the vanilla last, and to make them really fluffy, I put a lid over them. Not a complete seal as I think the moisture would make them soggy. Never thought of adding anything except whatever fruit people want in them. I'll try cinnamon. Thanks, Dex.
My general recipe is all approximate amounts:
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups fresh buttermilk
1/2 cup Pacific evaporated milk
3 eggs medium-sized
1/3 cup butter, melted
squirt of vanilla (the real stuff)
sliced (unless it's blueberries) fruit of your choice
Anna uses pretty much the same recipe, I think. Those are good too, but you need more of them to get full.
