Completing Team Pancake

Pancake accomplishment is now part of the portfolio of all three cooks of Casa Hayes-Boh. James has tinkered for years with variations of Deborah Madison's buttermilk pancakes, making his yogurt-based version locally famous. Just last week, Pam delivered a scrumptious stack of maple-pecan pancakes to our table and this blog.

Paloma's pancakes looked
much better!
Today, Paloma rounded out Team Pancake with an incredibly fluffy stack of eggnog pancakes, using her smart phone for in-kitchen access to a popular recipe on All Recipes. We enjoyed the rich flavor of these cakes, which do not require toppings. Paloma did find them to be a bit "chunky," and might thin the batter with a bit more milk next time.

One tip: the recipe suggests pre-heating the griddle before starting to prepare the batter. This might be rushing things just a bit, though it is good to have the griddle hot before heating any cakes.

The griddle, by the way, is really key. We are very fortunate to have a cast-iron griddle and a fifth gas burner that makes it easy to heat it evenly.
