Great-Grandmother's Pancake/Waffle Batter
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
6 ingredients
3-4 servings
Handed down in my family for generations. It's meant to be refrigerated overnight. However, if you must have your pancakes *now*, measure the baking powder in slightly rounded teaspoons instead of leveled off. Let the batter sit on the counter at room temp until it starts bubbling, to be sure that the necessary chemical reaction is taking place. It's very easy to 'draw' simple shapes as you pour the batter. Children adore hearts, stars, their initials, etc. Addendum 4/21/09: I will tell you quite honestly that I've been rather shocked by the recent spate of negative reviews. Frankly, I'm lost. All I can figure out is that those who hated them must have been eating them plain. And in that case, I can understand why they disliked them. These pancakes are meant to be smothered in butter and saturated with syrup. Should you choose to eat them 'naked', all bets are off. :)
