Description

Learn the secret of why diner pancakes taste better than those floppy disks you make at home.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ⅓ cups Malted Milk Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¾ cups Milk
  • 1 whole Extra Large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste Or Extract
  • 3 Tablespoons Melted Butter

Preparation

Heat the griddle (or non-stick skillet) to medium-high.

In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.

In a smaller bowl, whisk the milk, egg, and vanilla until frothy.

Add the milk mixture to the dry mix and whisk until smooth. Finally, whisk in the melted butter. Allow the pancake batter to rest for 3-5 minutes to thicken.

Start by making one pancake as a test-batch to ensure your heat in accurate.

Use a 1/4 -1/3 cup scoop to ladle the batter onto the griddle. Cook for 1-3 minutes per side. Flip when small bubbles rise to the top of the batter.

If your batter thickens too much, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to thin it just enough to pour.

Makes 8-10 pancakes.

Think these could be made and frozen, then heated up in toaster oven?

We loved these, they were some of the best pancakes ever, but I don’t ever have extra large eggs, so I used a little yogurt and added sugar too. We like our pancakes with a little sweetener.

I had very high hopes for these pancakes because of the great reviews. These just didn’t work for us. Because of the butter in the batter, they burned very easily before the middle was ready. So I turned the heat down to low but they still turned very dark on the outside. And the taste with the malted milk just was not enjoyable for us. It didn’t really taste like an authentic diner pancake and it was a lot of work and I think Bisquick tastes better to be honest.
