Adirondack Flapjacks


When it comes to making pancakes, I've always been a straight-from-the-box sort of gal. But sometimes you just got to break out of the mold and get adventurous. After making these, I am now giving up the box. They were light and fluffy and too easy to make. Add syrup, honey or preserves to finish them off. I even gave my kids a little whipped cream on top for fun. Yum!

Adirondack Flapjacks
4 eggs, separated
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat eggs whites to firm peaks. Set aside. Beat egg yolks in a separate bowl. Add sugar, salt, milk and butter. Add vanilla. Mix well. Gradually add the flour and baking powder. Fold in egg whites.

Grease griddle with shortening and set on medium to high heat. Once griddle is hot, pour pancake batter, about 3 to 4 pancakes each time. Once the pancakes are golden brown, remove to a plate and keep warm.
Serve with butter, warm syrup or honey, or preserves.

Makes about 15 medium sized pancakes.

Yum. I love pancakes. I had some while we were on our trip, the first I think I'd eaten literally in years.

I eat them a lot more now than before I had kids. I even get cravings for them. I hope the pancakes you had on your trip were delicious and therefore worth the wait!
