The PERFECT Pancake

Every weekend we try to make a big, hearty breakfast at least once. For YEARS we have been trying different pancake recipes. After abandoning our box of Bisquick, finding something we ALL loved was pretty tough. Until, after a lot of experimentation and research, we came up with this:

I kid you not when I say it is perfect, because, truly, it is. There is no pancake that tastes fluffier than this precise recipe, which takes just as much prep time as Bisquick, so give up those partially hydrogenated oils already! You can do this! You will be healthier and happier for doing so. (unless, of course, you pair it with some fried Jimmy Dean sausage patties and eggs fried in the sausage grease - my fav)

But health is not ALL that matters here. This recipe involves most ingredients that you already have on hand, and it's down right easy - like Sunday morning...

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
7 tsps baking powder (this is the secret to the fluffiness!)
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
6 tbsp melted salted butter (this is the secret to the 'perfect' cooking and, of course, the perfect taste)
2 1/2 cups milk

Mix all wet ingredients first. Then, mix all dry ingredients separately. Combine and whisk together. Cook on a lightly greased griddle until bubbles begin to form on one side. Flip. Cook. EAT!

So the salt in the butter is enough, since there is no salt listed separately?

Kathryn - I always have salted butter on hand! I've made this recipe a thousand times and it seems to be sufficient wihtout additional salt. If you want to bring out the flavor a bit more - you could always try adding salt but I would start with no more than a tsp. In my opinion, you don't need it! Using salted butter saves a step!! Hope you enjoy!
