Fabulous pancakes!

I recently discovered King Arthur Flour's "Guaranteed" recipes and I am very impressed with the results. So far I have made the pancakes, the shortbread and the banana bread and they were all so good that I doubt I will ever try a different recipe for them.




- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups of milk
- 3 Tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 Tbsp sugar or 1/4 cup malted milk powder

Beat the eggs and milk until light and foamy, about 3 minutes at high speed of a stand or hand mixer. Stir in the butter or vegetable oil.



Whisk the dry ingredients together to evenly distribute the salt, baking powder and sweetener.


Gently and quickly mix into the egg and milk mixture. Let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes, while the griddle is heating; it"ll thicken slightly.


Heat a heavy frying pan over medium heat, or set an electric griddle to 350°F. Lightly grease frying pan or griddle. The pan or griddle is ready if a drop of water will skitter across the surface, evaporating immediately.
Drop 1/3 cupfuls of batter onto the lightly greased griddle. Bake on one side until bubbles begin to form and break, then turn the pancakes and cook the other side till brown. Turn over only once. Serve immediately.

The recipe I use is almost exactly the same. Made a double batch this am - they freeze great!

Thank you for the tip Wendy, I have never tried to freeze pancakes. That will certainly be helpful for certain mornings!
