So the child has requested, "American" pancakes for tomorrow, which I interpret as, "Not crepes." My suspicion is he wants a stack of syrup doused sweets for dinner, rather than the savoury filled crepes we do every year. Fair enough, except that I'm not particularly skilled at the fluffy sort. Where a crepe will fill the pan and come out uniform in shape, fluffy pancakes come out as misshapen blobs in my hands. What's more, they're never really all that fluffy unless I purchase a box of Bisquick, and even then, there's no guarantee of success.
I have buttermilk, and egg whites, and a tin of vegetable shortening-what could possibly go wrong?
(quite a bit, left to my pancake abilities).
I got out the Betty Crocker cookbook, and I'll be making the "Delicate Fluffy Pancakes" which I'm sure, won't be.
Are you making pancakes tomorrow?
