Heat griddle or skillet on medium-low. Spray with cooking spray or butter. Drop batter 1/4c at a time to make pancakes. Spread with spoon or back of measuring cup to make nice sized pancake.


Flip when center of the pancake contains bubbles. Cook for a few more minutes. Makes 12 4-inch pancakes.








Suggested toppings: aside from the usual maple syrup add some cheddar cheese and fresh blueberries for an extra treat. Rich introduced me to the cheddar cheese. A waitress at Heidi’s in South Lake Tahoe once added cheddar cheese to his pancakes when he was a boy. A great culinary accident turned into a lifetime of taste-bud pleasure.
