The ultimate fluffy pancakes



This makes about 6-8 pancakes.

1 1/2 cups flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1 egg

1 1/4 cups milk

3 tablespoons melted butter
Mix the egg and milk in one bowl. In another bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Stir after adding little bits to prevent lumps.

When mixed fully, stir in the melted butter.

Cook on a 350 degree griddle. Use a non-stick spray or butter to prevent sticking. Flip once the first side has bubbles that open and it looks like this.



Cottage cheese pancakes

“This is about as Missoura as it gets.” Yes… I grew up outside of St. Louis and that means I ate some definite midwest creations along the way. I can only think of describing this as similar to a cheese blintz. Salty… not fluffy… perfect with sweet maple syrup. We ate these constantly. In fact, growing up I thought all pancakes had cheese in them. Silly me.

There really isn’t anything quite like this. My mom is in town visiting. That means I get to pull out all of the old famous family creations.



3 beaten eggs

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup flour

1 cup cottage cheese

3 tablespoons oil

Mix it all up. Heat a grill to 350 degrees. Make sure to coat the grill with cooking spray just prior to cooking. These cook much longer than regular pancakes. They take about 5-10 minutes per side. Flipping them often results in bad things. The cheese splits out and they begin to stick. One batch makes about 5-6 pancakes or enough for 2 people. They are filling. Expect about 2-3 per person.
