    Default Pancakes

    I followed a recipe for a change, and finally found out what is wrong with
    my pancakes, which are almost always too heavy--not eggy but very thick.

    I generally use wayyyy too much flour and not enough baking powder. These
    came out nice and fluffy. I omitted the melted butter, just did not see the
    point as I put butter and good maple syrup on mine anyway.

    Hard to believe that a "southern site" would be making pancakes
    without buttermilk.

    I think there is one there. I don't keep buttermilk around, anyway.

    It was #2 on the selection list when I first looked. Now you have to
    enter the term into their search box.... then you have a choice.

    The point of the butter is to make the pancakes tender. It's the
    shortening. You can use oil if you don't want to use butter.

    And as the only fat it probably also helps keep the cakes from sticking.

    Some of the best pancakes are made with yeast:

    ....and I think you just happen to have plenty of yeast in your crotch.
