Eight to ten pancakes can be had from that recipe, depending on the size of the pancakes. I get eight, as I can just barely cook four on my square griddle.

It ruins the perfection and I get perturbed at myself when it happens.

And you don't have to say it, I'm a strange guy. My genetic traits are responsible for the odd things that my DD's do as well, at least some of the odd things, poor girls.

Seeeeee; Chief Longwind of the North.

Thanks Chief Longwind. That means I can half the recipe for just DH and I and use the doubled recipe when my grandson stays over.

It's OK that you're strange. I tend to like strange.

You could do what Stirling does. He mixes up a big batch of the dry ingredients and puts most of it in a large jar. Then when he wants to make pancakes, he takes some of the dry ingredients and adds the wet ones to the already mixed dry ones. He wrote up a little chart on the front of the dry of ingredients that says how much of the various wet ingredients to add to how much of the dry that is on the jar.

I used to do that when I'd go camping with DW and the kids. I even went so far as to add the correct amount of powdered eggs and powdered milk, so that I only needed to add water and cooking oil. I didn't ave to carry around a lot of perishable goods. It worked great.

Thanks for sharing that idea. It brings back such good memories.

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I wonder if using ice water would improve the recipe...

And if it hasn't already been mentioned, don't over mix the ingredients. Stop mixing before you have a uniformly mixed batter.
