A Pancake Recipe To Fit Your Mood

By Andrew Cook

My favorite food is pancakes. They are good anytime of the day not just for breakfast. My basic pancake recipe is a mix of eggs, baking powder, sugar, and flour. I mix them up in my food processor. The difference in your pancake recipe is what you add. I add blue berries to the batter but I like to process them in the food processor. I do not like lumps in my pancakes. But if you do that will work also.

You can use frozen blue berries. They are usually less expensive and simply let them defrost before adding them to the batter. You can add pumpkin to the batter for some nice autumn pancakes. Use of can of pumpkin. Do not use the can of pumpkin pie mix. The regular canned pumpkin works better.

I might want sweet potato pancakes. That is sweet potato flavored pancakes. These are not potato pancakes. That is a different recipe. You need sweet potato in the can. Add some to the batter and process. You can add a little of the liquid but not to much or you will make your batter too runny.

You can also place strawberries in the batter and process them so they are ground up. Strawberries are too large and will not cook well in the pancake unless they are processed in the batter.

I cook my pancake batter on the griddle. I brush the surface with a pastry brush dipped in cooking oil. I test the heated griddle by dropping a few drops of batter. When they start to sizzle and cook I know the griddle is ready. I scrape off my test batter and start cooking.

I pour about a five inch circle of batter. I turn them when the bubbles have formed but before they have all popped on the surface. If you like your pancakes more cooked you can wait until all the bubbles have popped. Flip the pancake and cook for about forty more seconds. Longer if you like your pancakes more cooked.

Cover the plate with a lid and make your second one the same way. I like my syrup warm so I place the bowl of syrup on the stove top while I ham cooking the pancakes. I also drop a chunk of butter in the syrup so the butter is melted by the time I pour the syrup. If you check you grocery store for pancake syrup you will be surprised to see that is nothing but corn syrup with caramel coloring or simply food coloring. You will these ingredients certainly in the store brand or generic brand products.

You do not want to cover your pancake recipe with corn syrup. Find real maple syrup. You might have to go to a specialty store or shop online but do what you need to find real maple syrup. May you enjoy your next stack of pancakes. I almost feel like cooking some up right now.
