I have a question about the ingredient "cup whole milk" on the recipe "David Eyre's Pancake" from amanda.
Does it need to be whole milk? I only have 1% in the house!
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

I haven't tried it with 1% but it should work. If you have any cream, add 1 tablespoon.
I don't want to speak for Amanda, but I always seem to have the wrong kind of milk on hand for recipes! Whole milk has about 4 grams of fat per half-cup while 1% milk has 1.25 grams per half cup. You can make up the difference by starting with a 1 1/2 tablespoons of half and half (if you have some) and then adding the 1% milk to add up to a half-cup, or by adding 2 teaspoons of melted butter to the 1% milk. You can use the 1% milk, the pancake will be just a little drier.
I've made this recipe for many years with 1% milk and a few times with whole milk and honestly cannot taste any difference. The pancake is wonderful either way!
I only use 1% milk and the pancake comes out amazing. My kids love it and I love that it has a bit less fat in it with the 1%.
I didn't have any cream in the house so I just used the 1%. It turned out just fine and absolutely delicious! Thanks for the help!
Thanks for the follow-up -- glad it worked out!
This recipe will be a regular on my table at all hours of the day*
I used half/half and it was fine
