One of my personality flaws is my perpetual dissatisfaction with pancakes. I’m always and ever in search of the platonic recipe, and all variations inevitably fall short. This one is pretty good, but it hasn’t ended my quest.
I’ve had the recipe squirreled away for months, ever since Megan at Rhubarb Pie blogged about them last October. Then someone linked to this post on Orangette about a similar recipe. Clearly, I had to make them. I threw the batter together last night and tucked it away in the fridge. What was in the bowl this morning was too runny to hold a shape on the griddle, and so I ended up adding around 3/4 cup more flour to them. They were good. We ate about half and I froze the rest. But my quest is not ended.
