Pancakes, like waffles, seem to be an endless struggle for me unless I make them with bisquick. I was going to use the dry mix cookbook and make it from there, but the more I looked at the leftover mix from the “bread”, the more I didn’t want to take the chance. I looked in the King Arthur cookbook and found a recipe – figured why not. Thankfully, I only made a half a recipe. The original made 16 pancakes.
See the batter? The recipe said that it would thicken while sitting or overnight. I don’t know how long they wanted you to let it to sit, but it never thickened. Maybe I was supposed to put it in the fridge while waiting?
It was such a weird pancake. It was thin, but meaty? No, that’s not the right word. Toothsome? Is that a real word? Firefox isn’t saying it’s bad 😉 It tasted like it should be a fluffy pancake, but it was thin. It wasn’t easy to cut with a fork. It wasn’t a bad flavor, but it just wasn’t a really good texture. Maybe kind of like the Picnic Wraps I made, but squishier. I also don’t like the fact that they tell you what temperature an electric griddle should be, but no clue as to what to set the stove burner to. I don’t think I will try this particular recipe again. Now, the pancake recipe search begins…..
