the art of pancakes

My go to pancake recipe is healthy and packed with protein and goodness, but it’s not your standard pancake. For whatever reason, this past weekend, I decided I needed a standard pancake recipe, so I got mixing.

I wanted to do it from scratch, mostly because I didn’t want to go to the store at the moment and buy a mix, and also, making pancakes is a serious life skill.

I chose the recipe from Google and it had a 5 star rating with lots of reviews, so I expected I was in good hands. These, the ones on the right, were okay. I made enough for two servings and refrigerated half for another day’s breakfast. The first batch came out looking kind of funky, but the ones I ate immediately looked and tasted better.

The second batch, on the left, looked and tasted a lot better. The trick, I think, is in allowing the batter to rest for about 15 minutes after mixing. I could not tell you the science of why, but it was on the instructions and I listened.

Still, these are not my momma’s pancakes, which, upon reflection, I believe came from Bisquick, but if that is not the case, I’m sure she’ll be ‘quick’ to tell me. And for the record, when I asked her and my sister if they had a go to recipe, she said “no” and my sister didn’t answer at all.

Back to the drawing board this weekend! If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to comment or send me a recipe!
