per request, pancakes

Miss S at work asked how to make pancakes a couple months back.  I realized that I think of them as easy but I have not written or followed a recipe in years!  While we were camping, I wrote this down for her.


Note:  I do not particularly care for fluffy pancakes.  If you do, add a bit more flour to make a thicker batter.

1 cup hempmilk or milk

2 eggs

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

(or instead of the two above, 1 teaspoon baking powder)

1 cup flour or very fresh whole wheat flour

1/4 cup melted butter.

Start heating your griddle.  I use a cast iron griddle and melt my butter on it as I heat it.

Put the milk, eggs, sugar, and salt in a bowl.  Mix well.  Mix in the baking soda, cream of tartar (or baking powder), and flour.  You wish it to be a little bit bumpy still.  Do not over mix.  Mix in the melted butter.

Pour by scant 1/4 cups on to the griddle (or in the cast iron pan).  I do not like large pancakes so I make them smaller.  Let cook until bubbles form, pop, and the top becomes dryish.  Turn and cook until brown.

Serve with syrup.  We really like these with roasted apples!
