It’s been a great big pancake fest in our house over the past few days. After Paige got sick last week, Will caught a touch of sickness too … but then they both snapped out of it, all they wanted was copious amounts of ultra-fluffy, sweet, delectable pancakes. My pancakes. The special pancakes that Will and I make together.
For a long time, I have been trying to find an easy homemade pancake recipe that produced consistently light and fluffy pancakes. I hate pancakes that are dense and heavy. Forget thick ones … I want airy. This recipe developed with tweaking and experimenting. It all started with an okay recipe that I found in the Betty Crocker Cookbook. It had potential, but lacked the flavor explosion that I crave. I wanted these pancakes to be so good that you didn’t need any syrup or any other topping. These needed to stand alone.
Right about now, someone, somewhere is shaking their head wondering why I don’t just use a boxed mix and make it easier. Sorry, but easier isn’t better. And when it comes down to it, these don’t require much more work than tossing together pancakes from a box.
Plus, it’s a testament to their deliciousness that everyone always asks for seconds on these. Who knew homemade pancakes could be this good?
And if you are cooking with kids, this is an ideal recipe — There is plenty of room for little hands to add ingredients.
