Author Notes: Healthy home-made sweets are never as delightfully delicious as things made from refined white flour, refined sugar and butter. At least that was what I believed, until last week when I took a bite of my friend’s pancake. It was so surprisingly good, that I had to get her recipe. Though, after a few unsuccessful unfluffy tries, the recipe has been revised a little bit. It’s now our weekend breakfast, every week. —FrancesRenHuang
