Recipe Time: Pancakes
We love pancakes in our house. We eat them a lot. For Valentines Day, my husband got me an electric griddle. I was so excited! He even let me have it a week early, with the proviso that I make him pancakes and bacon on February 14th. It was used a couple of times before Valentines day, the first time being when a friend of mine came over for dinner and made us all pancakes. (Yes, we are the kind of people who eat pancakes for dinner). She made them from scratch, which i had never had before, and my goodness they were divine!!
Not long after, I made pancakes on the griddle using a boxed mix that i had on hand (I've always been way too lazy to bother learning how to make them from scratch), and i was shocked at how revolting they were! The griddle certainly cooks them differently than a frying pan. They practically disintegrated the instant i put the syrup on! They were grainy and crumbly and just ... blech!
So, for Valentines Day, i got my friend's recipe, and I've been using it ever since.
