Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
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.
- 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.
- Allow batter to stand for 15 minutes before cooking.
- Heat griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
- Scoop or pour desired amount on to griddle. Brown lightly on both sides.
You can easily freeze leftover pancakes. Place pancakes on a sheet pan and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Stack with wax paper in-between and place in freezer bag. Use your Microwave or toaster to reheat.
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.
