Why do you even bother with the baking soda? It isn't doing much good with nothing acidic to react with it and cause it to produce carbon dioxide for leavening.

I don't know. lol. Because other recipes have had it in there? I didn't realize it needs something acidic to react to it.

A lot of pancake recipes have buttermilk, which would make the baking soda work.

I too use baking powder in my recipe and I buy Rumford, it is aluminum free and has a cleaner flavor, I prefer it in things with a neutral flavor like pancakes or biscuits. Argo also makes an aluminum free baking powder.

I find that baking powder with aluminum has an acrid flavor in things like biscuits and pancakes where there is a lot in there and nothing else to counteract the flavor.

Don't you just hate it when the keyboard keys are too close together.

I know you made an innocent mistake, but I have tears running down my face from laughing so hard. Thank you for enriching my day with humor.

Ok, now I'm feeling really dumb. I don't see my mistake, and I've looked over the sentence a bunch of times. It's probably a case of my mind, reading what it wants to see. Please, let me in on my mistake.

Your original recipe had a "ss" where the "dd" is in the above sentence.
