The History of Kiki’s Pancakes.
Kiki has always loved pancakes and I have loved making them. One morning, as a goof, I decided to make pancakes from scratch; using a recipe from an old cookbook. They were good, but not great. So, every morning when Kiki would say she wanted pancakes for breakfast, I cheerfully agreed. I experimented with ingredients, ratios, and mixing styles. After a few years of making “good” pancakes. I finally discovered what I consider to be a “great” pancake.
This simple pancake mix is one way I demonstrate the love I have for my family and friends. I hope you share it with those you love too.
How to make the perfect pancake!
First, I prefer to use a non-stick pan. Whatever pan you choose, make sure you are “used” to it.
Don’t try to speed the process by using high heat. This batter is fairly thick when it comes off the ladle. That means the outside will cook faster than the inside. I keep my stove on medium heat. The sugar that is already in the mix will burn before the inside of the pancake cooks fully. That’s bad.
Flip them once.
You can serve them as they come off the pan or stack them together so they don’t lose any heat.
Not to be a snob, but use real maple syrup if you can. You don’t need to use as much as you might think.
