Decent pancake recipe

Anyone have a good recipe for pancake mix from scratch? I just can't seem to get mine right. They mostly cook too much on the outside and not enough on the inside (no matter how low on the heat I go), or taste funny. I'm sick of throwing out botched mixes.

What do you guys do?

How can I resist. I am truly known far and wide for my pancake recipe. There us another on this board who is known for his pancakes and I'm sure that he will soon see your request and give you his recipe as well. Both are excellent recipes.

Goodweed's Pancakes
Dry Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp. double acting baking powder
2 tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt.

Wet ingredients:
2/4 cup milk
1 extra large egg
3 tbs. cooking oil.

Preheat your griddle until water just dances accross the cooking surface.
Combine all he dry ingredients together with a balloon whisk. In a large, separate bowl, whisk together the egg and oil until smooth. Add the milk and whisk. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the milk/oil/egg mixture. Whisk until everything is just wet. There should still be little lumps in the batter. These tell you that you haven't overmixed the batter.

Lightly butter the griddle surface. Place three tbs. of batter per pancake onto the griddle and cook until bubbles begin to form and pop on top. Flip carefully and cook for another minute and a half. Flip onto plates, top with your favorite topping and eat immediately.

These pancakes are as light and fluffy as a cloud, and are super moist and tender. You have to experience them. My favorite way to serve them is with maple syrup (the real thing if possible), and a good sage-flavored breakfast sausage. Yum.

I tried GW's pancake recipe once. I'll never go back to a mix. They are easy to make and taste wonderful. Here is his original thread http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...akes-2099.html

Use Goodweed's recipe. You won't find a better one.

Your crepes, though tasty, are different from pancakes. While crepes are very thin and typically wrapped or folded with a filling, pancakes are thicker and served flat in a stack with syrup, typically maple.

Two different and delicious foods.

I appreciate what you said, but in England, pancakes are also commonly known as crepes. Like Shrove Tuesday is also named "Pancake Day" by the heathen lot.

It looks like a crepe recipe to me.
