Weather: 32 degrees, light snowfall
What I’m listening to: the kids watching Cars 2
Our kids had a school closure one day this week from a big snow and wind storm that culminated in power outages all over our area. When the kids are home and there’s more time to cook up a big breakfast, the number one request is pancakes.
In my mind, the best pancakes are golden, tender, a little tangy from the buttermilk, and not sweet. The sweet should come to the party in the form of syrup (or your pancake topping of choice). A little spread of butter and you’re good to go. Don’t forget the butter.
My tip to getting that even golden color on my pancakes is to use a good non-stick griddle pan and not to grease it. At all. No oil. No butter. No spray. Don’t do it. The result will be evenly-colored, fluffy pillows of buttermilk and wheat, provided your pan is truly non-stick.
