105. Pancakes from Scratch
My family loves pancakes. We are constantly trying new recipes to find the perfect one and have decided that there are just too many perfect pancake recipes…LOL
This is a recipe I found years ago. We love it. It's still written on the envelope that I copied it on to. It is a bit longer to make pancakes from scratch, but to my family, it's worth it. They don't like the boxed mixes anymore than I do buying something with too many ingredients.
This post is short and sweet just like a short stack of these lovely pancakes. Enjoy!
1.5 cups of flour (sifted twice)
3 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of salt
1 T. sugar
1 1/4 cups of milk
3 T. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 egg whites
Sift dry ingredients together. Beat egg whites until peaks form. Mix wet ingredients, minus the egg whites. Combine dry/wet ingredients together and then gently fold in egg whites. The batter will be fluffy.
Using a hot griddle or pan, cover in butter and start cooking your pancakes. Serve immediately.
