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. One of the best pancakes I’ve ever had meeting this description is at the okayokay diner in our neighbourhood. It’s a really small diner so we often end up eating at the counter where you can watch the cook making orders on the griddle. I’ve spent many a morning watching him ladle out the pancake batter, speculating about possible ingredient combinations and ideal cooking temperatures. 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.
