I halved the recipe and served them with carmelized apples to both my girls. I was regretful I hadn't made the full recipe because I would have had seconds they were just that good. I'd say without a doubt these are the best pancakes I've ever made in my house....of course don't tell Aunt Jemima that.
I use a very similar recipe for a silver dollar version (which is what my hungry bunch asks for).
1-1/2 c. All Purpose Flour
2 tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Stick Unsalted Butter (cubed and melted)
2 Large Eggs
1 tsp Salt
1-1/4 c. Buttermilk
Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and slowly add butter. Next, add eggs and stir in buttermilk a bit at a time. On the griddle they go with a bit of butter and cook until bubbly and turn.
The mix is just thick enough that you can control the size of the pancake, but thin enough that they stay individually thin as a silver dollar pancake should.
I use a measuring cup (1/4 c.) to ladle out each portion while cooking.
The recipe below originally called for 3 tsp of baking powder to get an awesome fluffiness, but the baking powder made it extremely sour and uneatable. My next attempt I used only close to a tsp of B.P. and they were yummy but, no that fluffy. Can anyone help. Is it the kind of baking powder I use? its Foodclub Baking soda. it says for cleaning and baking. Thanks,
My home recipe is
1 1/2c milk
3 tbsp melted butter
Have you tried the Rouxbe recipe (this recipe) for pancakes, they are very good and they rise very nicely. We use this recipe all the time (preferably with the buttermilk).
Try this recipe and see what you think, I would provide a link to the recipe, but this IS the recipe!
I was really afraid to try this recipe at first because of the huge amount of baking powder ,I actually thought it's a typo at first ;D.
The batter is really scary it looked like soap foam ( or at least mine looked like one) but this is by far the best pancake ever.....
Is it possible to substitute some of the flour with pecan or almond flour ?? or will this affect the texture of the pancake?
So glad you liked the pancakes Khaled. The batter does look quite foamy and fluffy, but they sure cook up nicely and they also happen to taste really great. This is certainly a "go-to" pancake recipe.
As for substituting some of the flour for pecan or almond flour, I actually don't know how it would affect things, it may make them a bit more dense. Maybe try substituting 1/3 of the all-purpose flour for another type to start. I suggest trying it and then sharing your feedback with us. Cheers!
Two important things to always remember:
1. Don't over mix (do the second exercise in the wheat/gluten exercise to find out why.
2. Let the batter sit for about ten minutes for the baking powder to start to react and then gently ladle onto griddle (don't mix at all after the first very quick mixing of ingredients). You want all this air in your pancakes.
You can certainly do this but only do it in batches - batches the size that you would make.
If you double, triple, etc the batch and then sift, what can happen is that when you scoop out say a 1/3 of the dry mix, it may not contain the right proportions of salt, sugar, baking powder, etc.
So make a batch, sift, bag. Then make the next batch, sift, bag, etc. so that you end up with consistent results when you add the wet stuff.
Honestly we just scoop and sweep but the spoon method would also work. You will see that these pancakes are very easy to make (and measure) the only trick is to not over mix them when you are making the batter. See the lesson on Wheat and Gluten for more info on this.
Good luck, I am sure you will love them! Oh, one more thing, the recipe calls for buttermilk or milk...use the buttermilk, it makes for the best pancakes.
We do not have a conversion chart available on Rouxbe yet. One cup of all-purpose flour is the equivalent to 140 grams. For baking recipes that use strict formulas, we will post the measurements in weight as well. Weighing ingredients does provide the most consistent results when baking/making pastries, etc.
In the meantime, here is a good link for some common ingredient conversions. Happy Cooking!
