Musings from a foodie…

I may have shared this at some point in the past. My Mom’s brother – Uncle Gail – would always make pancakes for us when we visited his place in North Platte, Nebraska. They were always the “bestest” pancakes and – literally – for decades I would ask for the recipe. Finally, about 20 years ago he relented and gave me the recipe for his Uncle Gail’s Famous Pancakes [* * * * * ]. Then, about a decade later, he shared the origin which I will share if you send me a note :-). The recipe follows – and, it’s easy to remember = “2 of everything except 1 Vanilla”: 2 Pints Buttermilk, 2 Cups Flour, 2 tsp Baking Soda, 2 tsp Baking Powder, 2 Tbsp Sugar, 2 Tbsp. Cooking Oil, 2 egg yolks, 1 Tbsp. Vanilla, 1 Tbsp Cinnamon (elective); and, a Pinch of Salt. Mix together into a pourable mixture. Set your griddle to about 400. When, the pancakes start to have little bubbles forming – flip ‘em over. Pour the size and quantity desired. Added blueberries are a regular feature at the Fickenscher household. Pour generous amounts of Maine Maple Syrup on the pancakes. Enjoy!!
