I love these. http://www.food52.com/recipes...
Although, I use a bit of cornstarch addition to make it more crispy.
It's a savory pancake that is very good.
This recipe is from an old friend of the family. He officiated our wedding - John Thomas' Pancakes:
1 cup flour - any mix you like
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbs oil
1 tsp salt (I use a big pinch instead)
1 cup milk
1 egg separated
butter or oil for frying
Sift dry ingredients together. Beat egg white to soft peaks. Mix milk, egg yolk, and oil in another cup. Mix wet & dry together, then fold in the egg white.
Heat a large cast iron pan to medium heat. Swirl in a bit of butter. Drop large spoonfuls onto hot pan. Turn pancakes once edges are browned & bubbles appear on the surface. Eat with lots of maple syrup & butter. Great with fruit as well.
Add blueberries when in season - it's easiest to add them once you pour batter into pan. That way they are evenly dispersed through all your pancakes.
I made 'perfect pancakes' over the weekend with a few changes-
Because I used buttermilk I halved the baking powder.
