I found it. Boxed mixes, special ingredients, different frying pans & assorted oils are a thing of the past. After a long & arduous search, I found the perfect pancake recipe.
Now, I’m a breakfast kind of girl. If I won the lottery, I would wake up every morning to a leisurely home-cooked breakfast. Imagine a vat of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, assorted pastries, European butter, crisp bacon, eggs over easy & cherry jam. THIS is my heaven. Until then, I will make the most of my weekend breakfasts.
This Diner Style Pancakes Recipe contains no added sugar. Score! The malted milk powder adds a bit of sweetness, so you won’t even miss it. That doesn’t mean you can’t add a sprinkling of powdered sugar though, right?
My family & I are Really Into This Diner Style Pancakes Recipe. The pancakes are light, fluffy with a hint of sweetness. We can’t get enough of them! Check out my recipe below!
Beat the eggs and milk until light and foamy. I use a Cuisinart hand blender for this part. You'll want to beat the eggs & milk at least 3 minutes. Then, beat in the melted butter. I use the hand blender for this as well.
In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together.
In small batches, fold the dry ingredients into the wet. I usually use a rubber spatula for this & then give it a gentle whisk, if needed. King Arthur Flour suggest letting the batter sit so it thickens. I let it rest when my stomach allows! Sometimes I'm too hungry to wait.
Heat a heavy frying pan over medium heat, or set an electric griddle to 350 - 375°F. Once hot, grease the pan lightly.
Using 1/3 cupfuls, place the batter on the griddle or frying pan. Let the pancake sit & don't flip it too soon. You'll want to wait until the tiny bubbles along the edges start to pop. This usually happens about 90 - 120 seconds. Gently flip the pancake & leave it for another 90 - 120 seconds. Serve & enjoy!
* Leftover batter is a rockstar with this Diner Style Pancakes Recipe. We use this Tovolo Cupcake Pen to store the extra batter. It's fun to make shapes & letters, but most importantly, it keeps the batter fresh. This guy makes Weekday morning pancakes a breeze.
