Sweet tooth

cakeI keep forgetting to ask, does any of you have a good pancakes recipe? Probably the typical milk and butter pancakes.

!?I know I can google it and I will find bazillion of them. Which is WHY I'm asking in the first place. I'd prefer to try something that someone I know has a good experience with . . .

I use the mix from a box! I have a good cornmeal one though if you want that.

I fear this will be the most common and possibly the only answer ;__;

But sure, shoot, I might try that too sometimes.

BTW have I told you I did apple crumble twice already and it was awesome?

What's wrong with that answer? I actually like the ones from the box (the one I get at least) better.

Let me see if I can find it.

You told me about the first time you did it.

Pancakes are an American thing. You can find crepes powder around here (but i have a good home made recipe, so I don't need that) but I haven't seen pancake powder . . . So telling me you just buy a box doesn't help with my effort to eat food I haven't eaten in almost ten years D:

Oh that makes sense. It had just sounded like you were a pancakes from scratch snob or something.

-1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
-1/2 cup white flour
-1/2 cup boiling water
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 tablespoon sugar
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-1 egg, well beaten
-1/4 cup melted butter
-1/2 cup milk

1. Put cornmeal in mixing bowl.
2. Pour water over cornmeal and whisk.
3. Add flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, egg, butter, and milk and mix.
4. Fry in greased pan over medium-high heat.

lol if I lived in US, I might be a pancakes from scratch snob (seeing as that is mostly the case with crepes) mainly because I'm not a dried food fan, but for a first timer and something I don't make at all, or very little, I'd take a box. I just had a sudden craving when I saw maple syrup in the store the other day.

but the cornmeal ones may actually work . . .

Creeping in someone else comments' thread to say that I'm going to give a try to it too. (^_^)
May I know which type of grease do you use for fry?
In addition to maple syrup, you two have something else to recommend?

Thank you and sorry for the intrusion, food attract me like honey for a bee. :D

That is okay. I love food too, so I am more than happy to spread the love around.

I use Crisco, but some other kind of oil/fat/butter should work too. You do not have to put a lot in; the pan just needs a little coating of something to prevent sticking. I would maybe just try using whatever you usually use to prevent sticking when you cook.

I love these plain without any topping, but when I use a topping I actually use jam rather than syrup. Raspberry or other tart flavors are good, as the pancakes are a little sweet. Fresh fruits are good too. I have never tried it, but peanut butter would probably work well. And when you mentioned honey I thought that actually sounded like it might be good on them as well.

Happy eating!

My mom makes them by scratch, but it's one of those recipes that goes "Add milk until it looks right." If you're okay with that, I can ask her? But are you looking for fluffy American-style pancakes or more crepe-like ones?

[identity profile] sashjun.livejournal.com 2012-01-19 08:17 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah try me, as long as you can give me at least a vague idea of what "right" means. As in runny, or rather not, . . .

Also I´m looking for the american stuff, crepes I have down :D very much so :DDDDD

I will definitely ask my dad. He's the pancake maker. We usually use a bit of a mix, but my grandma has a good from scratch Southern buttermilk style that are the fluffy thick kind- which sounds like what you want :)

YUP that is the one! Yay!!!

It's not pancakes but...if you like really sweet stuff, I know a Banoffee pie recipe that would pretty much cater to all your sugary needs

I was craving pancakes specififcally but any cake recipe is always welcome and intriguing. As is the author of it ;D

Late to the party but THIS ONE!!! They're a little more work than regular old pancakes (just because of the egg whites) but let me tell you... so worth it. <3333
