No popcorn used

The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves.

On a day off with a friend, slow-cooked bacon, eggs sunny side up for me, and pancakes – recipe here. The keys to scrumptious diner-style pancakes: gentle and only brief mixing of the dry into the wet ingredients, malted milk powder, and medium-low on the burner, which will give you 325-350F/160-175C in the pan and result in pancakes that are beautifully caramelised and soft, not crunchy.

    Are those Yum or what ?

    Yeah malted milk powder! I’ve become a fan of this stuff too! And I add it in my pie crusts for that medium brown color that it gives you insted of the off-white color!

    Who knew? Can’t remember why I started doing this, but I don’t like white crusts and so think it was sitting in front of me so thought I’d dump some in and see what happened. Never thought to add it into pancakes/waffles/crepes but so believe this stuff has a future in my cooking!

    Thanks for reminding me lalo!
