    This recipe is from King Arthur's All-Purpose Baking Book and my family's current favorite recipe. They have a spongy texture and soak in the syrup.

    1. 1
      Beat the eggs, milk, and vanilla until light and foamy, about 3 minute at high speed of a mixer (I do this step in blender and mix the rest in bowl with a large whisk).
    2. 2
      Stir in butter or oil.
    3. 3
      Whisk the dry ingredients together and gently, but quickly, mix into the egg and milk mixture.
    4. 4
      Let the batter relax while griddle is heating (or overnight in refrigerator) The batter will thicken upon resting.
    5. 5
      Grease and preheat griddle.
    6. 6
      The griddle is ready if a drop of water will skitter across the surface, evaporating immediately.
    7. 7
      Drop ¼ cupfuls of batter on the lightly greased griddle.
    8. 8
      Cook on one side until bubbles begin to form and break (this is the time to add anything like berries, chocolate chips, etc), then turn the pancakes and cook the other side until brown (turning only once).

      Very nice pancakes. I added a couple teaspoons of grated orange peel and fresh strawberries (goes great with Mimosas). Next time, I will omit the sugar because the outside of the pancakes were a bit more crisp than I prefer. Overall, they were wonderful pancakes. I will make this my standard recipe to use for Sunday morning breakfast.

      Oh Camille, you and your creeper pictures... These pancakes were simply sublime. When I fall asleep to the sound of prerecorded waterfalls and hummingbirds, I dream of a utopia filled with these feisty, old-man flapjacks. When I get married, I hope to birth children as magnificently scrumptious and delectable as these crêpe descendants. Thanks be to God for the magnanimous being who invented such a wonder.

      Turned out better than expected. Were light and just fluffy enough, not so think as Bisquik, but fluffy as home-made should be. Next time will wait until melted better is ENTIRELY cool to put into the wet mixture. Had a little bit of scrambled eggs going on, but they still turned out quite good. The melted butter in the mix makes a HUGE difference and tastes more like restaurant pancakes because of this. Will make this my standard from now on.
