James Beard’s Pancakes. Light, fluffy, heavenly pancakes.
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. I started cooking at a young age. First, I fried eggs and boiled hot dogs. Then I moved up to such important stuff as pancakes. And like most cooks, I made a few mistakes…and learned from them.
When I was about 12, I decided to make pancakes for my sisters and a couple of cousins who were visiting. I was so proud of myself. I found the recipe, and made the pancakes from scratch. The only trouble was that instead of being 1 or 2-inch fluffy pancakes, each one rose to about 6 inches! And they tasted awful.
Since I was the oldest, I made everyone eat them anyway. I, of course, tasted them and then didn’t join the feast. When my mom came home, I found out that the canister that I thought was flour was really powdered milk. 🙂
I have since learned how to make delicious pancakes, using the proper ingredients. I use James Beard’s ingredient list in my recipe, James Beard’s Pancakes. I think you’re gonna love them. I do.
What You Need
You’ll need a bowl, measuring cups and spoons, a wire whisk or an electric mixer, and a good pancake griddle.
James Beards’ Pancakes Recipe
James Beard's Pancakes
Simple, fluffy pancakes.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Melt the butter, add the milk to the butter and then add the eggs. Mix to combine.
- Add the wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Drop a gravy ladle full of batter (about 1/4 cup for each pancake) on your hot, lightly greased griddle (350F degrees) and cook until lots of bubbles form.
- Then turn the pancake over and cook it a minute or two longer until golden brown.
- Serve with butter, maple syrup and jam. Delicious!
