Pancake Ratios

I wanted to make Pancakes last night, but I don’t have any Pancake mix, so I tried to find a pancake recipe online. Most of them had “All-Purpose Flour” as the main ingredient, and I couldn’t remember if that was different than regular flour. (Upon reflection I think it is “Self-Rising” flour that I was thinking of when I heard “All-Purpose”)

1 c. flour

1 tsp. soda (I need to get some of this… I only have the stuff in my refrigerator. Since the pancakes were for me I went for it)

1 tsp. baking powder

3 tbsp. sugar (I don’t have any, so I put in 1/2 tbsp. of Vanilla instead)

2 tbsp. oil (I used Olive)

Pinch of salt

1 egg

1 c. buttermilk OR 1 tbsp. vinegar in 1 c. milk (Mix the vinegar into the milk… don’t just pour it on top of the stuff or it reacts with the baking soda.)

They turned out great! It made about 6 pancakes.

Make sure the griddle is heated up before you put the first one down… My first pancake didn’t hold together well.

If you don’t have a turner, make sure that you let it cook about 3/4 the way through or the raw batter on the top will splash when you flip it in the air…

  1. HOBBES: Now, the recipe says that it makes twenty-four pancakes, so we’ll each get twelve.

    CALVIN: Nah, that’s too much trouble.
    We’ll just make one big pancake and cut it in half.
