as promised

This recipe is over half a century old; a friend of mine claimed she paid $1000 for it to a professional cook in Chicago. I put it in my first cookbook. It's an easy by-heart recipe:


Stir together: 2 C white flour, 2 C.  buttermilk, 2eggs

.Melt together 2 Tbsp. honey and 2 Tbsp.butter

OOPS --FORGOT TO ADD: 1 tsp. each of baking soda and baking powder and salt - in the flour.  SORRY!

Stir that into the batter and mix well, but don’t over-stir.

 If you like a thin batter (more crêpe-like than flapjacky), add some cold water – to the desired consistency. 

Bake on a hot, well-seasoned griddle – whatever size of pancake you like.  When bubbles appear on the surface, turn the pancakes over and bake a little more.

Serve with (need I say?) maple syrup and butter. You can make these ahead so that you are not trapped in the kitchen away from your guests.  Layer the pancakes between paper towels and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve everyone.

There. Enjoy.
