The Quintessential Pancake

leave a comment »

I just wanted to strongly recommend the pancake recipe in this Google Knol:

It is not that these are the best pancakes, or the most interesting, or indeed interesting at all. Rather, they are the quintessential pancakes. When you imagine a pancake, when you imagine its flavour in your mouth, when you ask a small child to draw you a pancake, when you crave the stack of pancakes everyone eats on TV, the pancake that encompasses all traits of a pancake before you start fiddling, this is it. You can make a tastier pancake than this one, but you cannot make a more pancakey one.
