Perfect Pancakes

W.C. Fields once said, “The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves.” This pancake recipe will make it so easy for you to flip ’em you won’t need any such tricks.

Flapjacks, griddlecakes, pancakes, hot cakes—whatever you call them, they’re delicious. To truly acheive pancake perfection you must make them from scratch. The boxed mixes, while useful when you’re in a rush or camping in the woods, can’t come close to the taste and texture of your own homemade batter. You need to know how to make these, and make them well.

Follow this perfect pancake recipe and these steps, and you’ll never go hungry again. Once you’ve mastered these basics feel free to experiment by adding a dash of vanilla, a scoop of plain yogurt, slices of your favorite fruit, a dash of cinnamon, or just about anything else you think might turn these basic flapjacks into a work of art. Enjoy.
