Perfect Pancakes and Strawberry Butter
In my opinion, pancakes are the most perfect of breakfast foods. However, not all pancakes are created equal and I’ve been on a lifelong quest to find the perfect pancake recipe. My ideal pancake is thick and cakey, yet still maintaining a light fluffiness. My friends, I think my quest is over. I started with Ian’s dad’s traditional Saturday morning recipe and adjusted the baking powder, salt, and egg ratios until somehow I stumbled onto this combination that makes a great thick batter that puffs up into beautiful fluffy pancakes. Perfect Pancakes Makes about 8 medium sized pancakes, enough for about 2-3 people with good appetites 1 1/2 cup flour 2 Tbsp sugar 4 tsp baking powder 3/4 tsp salt 2 eggs 1 1/3 cup milk, at room temperature 1 Tbsp butter, melted 1 tsp vanilla In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and set aside. Strawberry Butter Combine all in a blender or food processor.
