Serves: 12 guests, give or take how big they like their hotcakes.
1 mixing bowl
5 cups white flour – sifted
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
1 Tbsp fine salt
Combine thoroughly all above ingredients. Use straight away or store in air-tight container. Recipe can be halved for smaller crowds.
To make pancakes:
1 egg for 4 or less guests & 2 eggs for 5 or more.
1/3 to 1 cup milk – amount depends on how many you are serving.
splash of vegetable oil
drizzle of good vanilla
Whisk together all wet ingredients. Add pancake mix one half cup at a time, whisking as you go until the desired thickness of batter is attained.
Pour in circles onto buttered nonstick pan or griddle. Cook on one side until they start to bubble in the middle then flip for a minute. Careful not to burn, gas stoves can be finicky. If they start to smoke just feed them to the pigeon’s.
chocolate chips / finely chopped chocolate
syrup (if you can find it)
