Let's go! The key to my pancakes is, NEVER MEASURE. But I'll estimate & we'll all have a good time. BTW, it was my rest day so I could afford to take my time & snap a few more pics than normal. Itte miyo.......yatte miyo!
You'll need 3 bowls. One LARGE. Divide six yolks from whites (use the two smaller bowls) SEE!
Now if you have a 10 year old daughter who wakes up at 7:00, get her to mix about 1/4 c of sifted sugar into the yolks. Mix it good!
Now, for the dry. Sift a lot of flour into the big bowl.......oh, darn, I never measure this part. It was something around 700g. of flour probobly about 6c. ?? Well, start with too little & you can always add more later. Along with the other "drys", 1 tbsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt. Look at that! That just makes me so happy-feeling! And it's just waiting for some little hand to smash it down, isn't it? Now, make a well in the center & start adding the egg/milk mixture, mix it little by little.
This part is awful fun. Stick to the middle & the flour will slowly pull away making it thicker & thicker.
So, it should end up looking something like this. And you know it's thick enough if it leaves a "mound" when dropped.
Remember your egg-whites? BEAT THEM!! That's right, till you have hard-peaks.
I know this will be hard for you impatient cooks but -- Keep the heat low & don't put too much batter in the pan thinking you're saving time, or you'll end up w/ burnt on the corners/raw in the middle problem. Don't flip till you see the bubbles. See the bubbles?
You get a nice brown rim from the oil on the pan, but of course, we stuck oil on in the batter so, who needs more right? Well, the folks who like it a little crispy around the edges.
Now make conversation w/ your toddler least she get board! And try to go swimming in your gigantic batter-bowl.
And the early birds get the worms. (that came out wrong)
And Voila!! That made about 30 something pancakes! And there ain't no better way to start the day!
