Re: Pancake Day. Mardi Gras

I always make my own. I have a great recipe that I've used for years. They're easy enough

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1/2 teaspoon for griddle or skillet

Heat griddle to 375 degrees, if using, or skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps.

Heat oven to 175 degrees. Test griddle/skillet by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If water bounces and spatters off griddle/skillet, it is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 1/2 teaspoon of butter or onto griddle/skillet. Wipe off excess.

Using a 4-ounce ladle, about 1/2 cup, pour pancake batter, in pools 2 inches away from one other. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.

Repeat with remaining batter, keeping finished pancakes on a heatproof plate in oven. Serve warm.

Yield: 8-9 six-inch pancakes (recipe can be halved)

Serve with warm maple syrup and bacon

Althought I appreciate the suggestion and the recipe, I can assure you my recipe for pancakes is superior! (Jovially kidding-but serious!).

The issue lies in not having a kitchen or equiptment/dishes to make my own.

As for Zum Guten Gluck..sounds promising, any reviews? Are they crepes? Because the need is for some good fluffy- style pancakes :P

Re: Pancake Day. Mardi Gras

Chemmie, I noticed when I was in a Starbucks yesterday that they have pancakes these days. I dunno if it was just the one (Claraplatz, here in Basel) or if it is a seasonal special, or what... Apparently they do also have maple syrup.

Doesn't sound as good as crepes from Zum Guten Glück though, if you have to go with something other than home made.

I get an extra pancake day this year, because I thought it was last Tuesday and only realised just now that I was a week early

Re: Pancake Day. Mardi Gras

Do the pancakes have to be "breakfast" pancakes?

Cornmeal Pancakes with Chili Topping



(If you decide to try that recipe, this may come in handy as well. Bisquick Mix - if I am making this for immediate use, I use butter or margarine instead of oil)

Re: Pancake Day. Mardi Gras

Well I will never consider myself a rule maker (or follower for that matter) but pancakes have always been a breakfast thing in my history. That being said, breakfast has often journeyed well its way into late afternoon, so them cornmeal chilli pancakes from Peg A do look mighty yummy
As for my 'special' recipe---no details are to be shared, but over ripe bananas (or baby bananas) and chocolate chips do make things interesting. (Alone or perhaps together--I'll let you experiment).
Once I move my butt out of this 'hotel' to a place with a proper kitchen--we can do it up properly, and you're all invited
But for next week... I NEED MY FLAPJACKS!

Re: Pancake Day. Mardi Gras

Also not pancakes I'd generally eat for breakfast but gosh do they look yummy!

S'mores Stacker Pancakes



McVitties Digestives make a good substitution for graham crackers, just in case you have "basic" ingredients or it's easier to get them than marshmallow creme, here is a recipe for that too.

Unfortunately Zum Guten Gluck does indeed serve crepes and not flapjacks. They are still good though...Yelp.ch has reviews but are all in German. I'm hoping I can convince them to serve me pancakes with just good ol' lemon and sugar.

However, I found the best creperie in the city today. Bei Babbette on Bertastrasse oozes of French influences and their crepes and galettes are truly excellent. Prices start at around CHF 12 if I remember correctly. Sadly, they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays which take them out of the running for Pancake Day

Some of those pancakes look like what my m-i-l made and called omelettes, which I'd call crepes... It's so confusing.

Anyhow, for those who maybe seeking inspiration, here are some more pancake recipes.

Well, I found buttermilk, so I'm making plain old buttermilk pancakes, recipe from the Fannie farmer cookbook (better find the box it's packed in), with sliced apples. Also some sausage patties (ground pork and Penzey's breakfast sausage mix). Don't have a griddle, but I do have a big non-stick pan. And, we have Vermont maple syrup that my sister carried in her luggage, last autumn. Breakfast for dinner. Mmmmmmmm

Mmmmmmmm, indeed! Sounds wonderful, E

I made plain old buttermilk pancakes for brunch this past weekend, which were really filling -- OMG! We weren't hungry the rest of the day. Today, it'll be crepes with lemon and sugar, à la Julia Child

Some of these look so fab. And here's boring me just putting sugar and lemon on mine.

Hey, not boring at all. Take crepes Suzette, for instance: crepes, orange, sugar, butter and Grand Marnier. Simple but perfect. Sometimes less really is more

I like mine for breakfast with maple syrup - on any (or actually many) days of the year.
