Pancakes & Growth

If you're looking for growth, one area we you don't want to neglect is our ability to make great pancakes.

Sundays are for pancakes, so to help kick start your growth efforts in this critical area I'm sharing a recipe I've been iterating on for 5 years.

Place a sieve over a bowl, and add in:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar

Shake sieve to let dry ingredients mix and fall into bowl.

Next melt 3 tablespoons of butter (I use the microwave and zap for 19 seconds, and then swirl to to let the rest melt down.)

Let the melted butter cool, and while it's cooling add:

1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg

to your dry ingredients. When your melted butter is lukewarm, add slowly add it in, whisking until smooth, but allow a little clumping - don't over whisk. Let stand 5 minutes so that the baking powder can do its job and create fluffy bubbles.

Heat grill to 235F. Butter up the grill surface.

Pour 1/4 - 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake. Flip when a few bubbles appear at the center of the batter.

Serve with an insufficient amount of maple syrup to only allow for a light drizzle across the stack.
