So Fluffy These Pancakes Have Been Mistaken For Pillows.

Admit it you have had a food dream involving soft and fluffy pancakes. A dream where no matter how much you eat the stack of pancakes never shrinks. The visions of fluffy, buttery, and syrup coated goodness dance in your head. Most times I imagine you reach for a box of pancake mix. Do you realize how simple it is to make a great fluffy pancake? This pancake recipe is a winner in so many ways it hits the mark of the perfect pancake profile (taste, texture, fluff, and weight).

Double Fluffy Pancakes

  • 1 cup A.P flour
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 tbsp. Granualated Sugar
  1. Combine dry ingredients in bowl
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  1. Combine wet ingredients and mix.
  2. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not over mix as it will deflate your pancakes.
  3. Allow batter to rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Ladle out the batter onto a preheated lightly oiled griddle or heavy bottom skillet or cast iron pan.
  5. The pancake is ready to flip when the bubbles in the batter have stopped appearing and the edges of the pancake have started to dry out.
  6. Turn the Pancake over gently and don’t bother with the theater flip made for tv. This can deflate your pancake.
  7. Give your pancake a few minutes to cook after you flip.
  8. Adjust heat for the next batch if necessary.
  9. Serve Hot.
These pancakes are so delicious and don’t require much effort.

Stuffed Shishito Peppers Wrapped In Beef Bacon

These peppers are very flavorful but not spicy

One of my food proverbs of wisdom is a flavor must not be overwhelmed by fire. Spicy food must have flavor and not be all heat. The shishito peppers hit that note. The recipe I put together had the perfect combination of sweet and salty with the faintest hint of heat. I also tested out some beef bacon. While the beef bacon was not as good as the original flavor it was as close a substitute as I have seen. I feel comfortable recommending the beef bacon as a prime bacon stand-in for it’s more popular relative.

Smoked Bar Ranch Beef Bacon

Putting this together was pretty easy. And ready in a jiff. Clean the peppers and slice on the side through the length of the peppers but not in half.

Stuff with string cheese
Wrap with bacon. Cut in half if needed
Bake in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes. Season if desired I used chili-lime flavored seasoning salt but very little
Glaze with strawberry jam
Plate it up to enjoy!

That’s all it took and a delicious bite is on its way to your palate. I added some roasted pine nuts and little cutie orange segments to the plate and rested the shishito peppers in more glaze. It was everything you need it to be and more.
