Short stack up! Served any time of day, it’s hard to beat the flavor of pancakes with maple syrup, bacon, and eggs. This classic dish usually associated with breakfast, is also a popular menu item with late night diners. I came across this pancake recipe a few years ago and have adopted it for my house cakes.
Good Old fashioned Pancakes:
- 1½ cups flour
- 3½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1¼ cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of melted butter
In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add milk, egg, and butter, mixing well. Heat griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Scoop or pour desired amount on to griddle. Brown lightly on both sides.
Cook’s Note: You can easily freeze leftover pancakes. Stack cooled cakes with a small piece of wax paper between and place in freezer bag. When ready to use, heat in toaster.
Pete’s Kitchen is a locals’ favorite located on East Colfax Avenue here in Denver, Colorado. Established back in 1942, it is another fine example of a classic American diner.
