Homemade Hotcakes


Did you know there is a difference between pancakes and hotcakes? A hotcake is smaller and thicker. That's the way I like it.



I didn't know what category to put this in, so I went with pastries, since many people refer to them as 'sliced pastry'.

Here's a very simple recipe that I know you will enjoy.




Ingredients





  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 1 egg (beaten with a whisk)

  • 1/2 to 1 cup buttermilk (Add amount to achieve desired thickness.)



NOTE: If you don't have buttermilk, you can use milk. If so, add a teaspoon of vinegar. The vinegar changes regular milk to buttermilk. In addition, I sometimes like to add a teaspoon of whiskey to my pancake batter. It does make a difference and it is so good. The only way you could tell the difference is to compare 2 recipes, one with and the other without whiskey. Finally, if you use self-rising flour, you don't need the baking powder and salt.





Preparation





You're almost home free. All you have to do now is throw the ingredients in a container. I recommend you use a bowl with a pouring spout, so you can easily pour them on the griddle.



Mix the ingredients until the texture you like is there.



Melt some butter on a cast iron griddle or skillet. Pour the batter and make about 3 circles at a time. Cook on each side until golden brown, and YOU'RE IN BUSINESS!
