Perfect Pancakes

Perfect pancakes: something I dream about. I love pancakes, I love PANCAKES! A perfect plump pancake, a little token of love. A wonderful glorious friendly breakfast, lunch or dinner. THere is never a wrong time for pancakes, they are always perfect to eat. They spread a joy that is unknown to any other food item in the world. I wish I could eat them everyday, but alas, I can not. However, when the occasion arises, I like my pancakes perfectly crafted. Last Saturday morning, Jack was up for the challenge (and hopefully this Saturday too).

2 cups flour
2 TBSP sugar
2 TSP baking powder
1/2 TSP baking soda
1/2 TSP salt
2 cup milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
4 TBSP melted butter

Sift the dry ingredients together into a large bowl, create a well in the center and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix it up, but be careful not to over-whisk; you see muffins and pancakes alike are easily over beaten making them tight and flat. It’s okay for the batter to be lumpy. You also have to let it sit for a minute and let the bubbles come up in the batter before cooking: this takes less than five minutes. Now you have the batter and you are ready to cook the pancakes. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat and melt some butter inside. Four each pancake put about a 1/2 cup batter in the pan. Let the pancakes cook, once they start to bubble, once the top looks bubbly flip them over and cook the other side. These are perfect pancakes.

Yum, my favorite breakfast was made for me by my favorite man. I can’t wait to eat pancakes again. Maybe Tomorrow! I’m daydreaming already!
