Ed's notes on this recipe:
Newsgroups: rec.food.recipes From: Gravity Girl <gravity@PEAK.ORG> Subject: Fly Off the Plate Pancakes Message-ID: <199508062138.OAA28847@PEAK.ORG> Date: 7 Aug 1995 12:27:16 -0500 Organization: University of Minnesota This is my variation on the recipe that originally had this name -- I got the original from someone I don't even know, and it is not the same as what appears here, which is my version. But the name Fly Off the Plate Pancakes is so great, it had to stay. The fun of these pancakes is to make them different every time. And they are just about as easy as making them with a mix. IMPORTANT NOTES: *They come out small and thick, about 4" diameter, so allow for a lower flame to get the inside cooked without torching the outsides. *If you're pretty hungry, this recipe only serves 2 persons (meaning 3-4 small pancakes each).
1 cup flour 1 Tbsp wheat germ 1/4 tsp salt 1 Tbsp sugar 1 Tbsp baking powder 1 egg 1/2 cup milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 Tbsp yogurt 1 1/2 Tbsp melted butterChoose a couple optional ingredients:
Makes 7 or 8 small pancakes. Serves 2 very hungry persons, or up to 4 reasonable persons who are also having other food with them.
The most recent extraordinarily delicious combination we had was: a little extra vanilla, a heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder, and a chopped pear. The flavor of the pear was intensified by the cooking and blended perfectly with the subtle chocolate. Mmmmmmmmmmm!
Apples, cinnamon & nutmeg are the classic mix. I also plan on doing some blackberry picking in my backyard (this is my first summer in Oregon). I'm sure we'll have to try these with the blackberries.
For an especially decadent day, chocolate chips pancakes are really great with whipped cream on top, though I have not tried them with this particular recipe.
Please let me know of any other great combos you discover.
