The Brits I lived with ate pancakes on Shrove Tuesday like this: flat, crepe-like pancakes served with sugar and lemon juice. Sorry, mates, just not the same!
My next pancake challenge in life came when I moved here to Wyoming. It turns out that like cookies, they react to the higher altitude and my first efforts were more like crepes than the fluffy North American-style deliciousness I crave. Don’t get me wrong, I like crepes too, but they’re just different.
So, over several months of experimenting on Doug, I adapated a basic recipe for use in the High Plains. And now I will share it (and its healthier version) with you:
High Plains Pancakes
(yields about 6 good-sized pancakes)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp white sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
3 tbsp canola oil
1 1/4 cups milk
Extras: 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, chocolate chips, or slice bananas on to the batter-side of the pancake once it’s in the pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Don’t try and skimp on the salt (as I tried a few times) – for whatever reason it affects the fluffiness factor. To cut down on dishes, I measure the milk into a 2-cup measuring cup, then add the eggs and oil to it, mixing it until the yolks are broken up. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and ladle it up with love onto a hot, non-stick pan or griddle.
Healthified High Plains Pancakes:
Instead of 1 1/2 cups of white flour, I usually do 1/2 cup white, 1 cup minus 1 tbsp whole wheat flour, and 1 tbsp of ground flaxseed. I also use skim milk instead of 1% or 2%. They turn out really nice!
My favourite these days is to defrost mixed berries (it isn’t exactly berry season in Wyoming) and spoon them over my pancakes. And of course you need maple syrup – and none of this ‘table syrup crap’ – it has to be the real stuff from Canada or, if you’re really in a pinch, Vermont. And crispy bacon on the side, of course. Add a hot cup of coffee and a glass of cold OJ and you will soon be in breakfast heaven, my friend.

yummmm, maybe you should try this recipe out a few more times before moving 🙂
Thanks for expressing your ideas. I would also like to mention that video games have been actually evolving. Today’s technology and enhancements have made it easier to create authentic and fun games. These types of entertainment video games were not really sensible when the actual concept was being experimented with. Just like other forms of know-how, video games also have had to grow as a result of many generations. This itself is testimony towards fast growth of video games.
fantastic points altogether, you just gained a new reader. What would you suggest in regards to your submit that you simply made a few days ago? Any sure?
