Not something I partake in often but pancakes were kind of calling out to us Sunday morning.  Simple and fluffy.  The recipe easily serves six hungry people. 

3 cups flour

2 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. baking powder  (yes, this much)

2 tsp. kosher salt

2 Tbsp. white sugar

2 eggs

6 Tbsp. melted butter

1 Tbsp. vanilla

2 1/2 cups milk

1/4 cup seltzer

In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients.  Take all the liquid ingredients and pour them together in the middle of the dry ingredients.  Mix with an electric beater until the batter is thoroughly mixed up. 

I used a frying pan (with melted butter so the pancakes don't stick) at a medium high heat to make the pancakes.  The key is pour just enough batter (large spoon) to create the right size pancake.  Then once small bubbles start to pop on top…flip the pancake until done.  It is quicker on the second side than the first.

Put parchment paper in a cookie sheet and set the oven to 240.  I put them on the cookie sheet in the oven as they are done so everyone can eat together.  Keeps the pancakes at the right temperature.

Serve with maple syrup, Greek yogurt, sliced bananas, blueberries or anything of your choice.

    I’d advise that you replace Maple syrup with Agave Nectar.I also emailed you an executive summary.

    So good.  I can only eat syrup if I have time for a nap a couple hours later.Is the Selzer a high altitude thing?

    Those look amazing!  If you ever find yourself in the mood for pancakes and happen to be in Brooklyn, Cafe Luluc’s are delicious too!  Smith Street.
