Old Fashioned Pancakes


This is the basic recipe for a slightly thick pie. It's as easy to make a quick homemade dough as opening up a mix tray, which needs ingredients added to it anyway. And it seems that the use of organic ingredients gives the pies a cleaner, more authentic flavor. 

Here's a great recipe that I found in my grandmother's recipe book. Judging from the look of this recipe card, this was a family favorite.

* Ingredients :

° 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
° 1 tablespoon sugar
° 1 teaspoon coarse salt
° 2 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
° 1 large egg, lightly beaten
° 1 1/4 cup milk
° 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter and more for serving
° Vegetable oil for the grill
° Warm pure maple syrup to serve

* Directiosn : 

Step 1
Place a heat-resistant dish in a warm (200 degrees) oven.

Step 2
In a bowl, beat together flour / sugar, salt, also baking powder. Making a hole in center of flour min . Adding eggs, milk and 2 tablespoons of butter. Whisk from the center, mixing the flour slowly. Let mixture for 11 min .

Step 3
Heat a large cast-iron skillet or favorite baking tray over medium-high heat. Stir the remaining tablespoon of butter into the skillet (or use the oil to cover the baking tray) and immediately pour a quarter cup of the mixture into each pie. When the bubbles rise to the surface, flip the pancakes, reduce the heat a little, and cook until the bottoms are golden and the centers are cooked, for about a minute. (You rarely make the first pie because it takes a while to get into the groove with the heat, fat, and dough.)

Step 4
When the pancakes come out of the pan, place them on a hot plate in the oven until ready to serve. Serve a stack of 3 muffins, topped with more butter and maple syrup.

Enjoy !
