So, I’m late on Pancake Day 😦 . But, this morning I was hungry, had the ingredients, and was remembering all the delicious looking pancake photos from yesterday. So I made pancakes! Big thanks to Chef John from foodwishes.com. Here’s the recipe: http://foodwishes.blogspot.com/2011/08/grandma-kellys-good-old-fashioned.html
Aren’t the delicious-looking? 🙂 Taste-wise though,they were good, not great, mostly because I did some fiddling with the recipe (tsk tsk, I know).
Firstly, I used locally grown and ground organic flour. And while that’s awesome, Chef John used normal all-purpose flour, so I had to adjust the consistency of the batter, and that’s when things got sticky.
I added about 2-3 more tablespoons of milk to thin the batter out a bit. Mistake. I probably should’ve just added 1 tablespoon of milk, and I definitely should’ve used an actual measuring spoon, instead of relying on my dubious hand-eye coordination.
To top it all off, I loaded the batter with cinnamon. Mistake II. I love cinnamon, but I should’ve learned by now that a little goes a long way. I should really start using measuring spoons for spices and seasonings! And Mistake III, I didn’t have any maple syrup on hand 😦 .
Still, they were pretty good, and I’ll eat ’em all!!! What did I learn from this food experience? Use measuring tools more often until you’re used to ‘judging it.’
