DIRECTIONS

  • Mix dry ingredients and sift. Make a mound and place hole in the center. Add the liquid ingredients and mix well. Pour 1/4 cup batter for one pancake.
  • The consistency should be thin enough that you do not need to touch the batter once you pour it. This pancake will rise. Use the ingredients specified. Adjustment of other ingredients WILL change the taste but so far as I have noted not the texture.
  • Use lard or bacon grease on the skillet or griddle. This is not a pam or oil recipe. If you must reduce the amount of grease wipe rapidly with a paper towel to remove. The skillet should be so hot a drop of water dances on it. IF you leave this overlong it will get a dark brown or black that means it browns rapidly. IT should bubble around the edges. Flip and watch the rise of the pancake to know when it is done. I suggest making a few small ones until you get the knack for this.
  • Yes it is 4 tsp baking powder, no it is NOT a typo so don't ask. Yes it needs that.
  • Serve with a pat of fresh butter and your favorite syrup.
