 Simple Pancake Recipe

Max has been asking me to make pancake for years but I had not been able to make it since we didn't have a griddle or non stick pan and I don't want to buy one just to make pancake. After all, we can cook everything including scramble egg on stainless steel pan. Well... everything except pancake.

Until one day when we went out to eat at restaurant and ordered pancake. Seeing the price, I did the math in my head and quickly figured out that two order of pancakes equals to the price of a griddle. So off I went marching to buy a griddle the next day.
 Pancake Ingredients
Once I got home, I couldn't wait to start cooking but disappointed to learn that many recipes use buttermilk and sour cream which I didn't have. I was delighted when I found the kitchn's recipe, which use ingredients I already have in my fridge and pantry.

I love this square griddle because it can fit 4 pancakes at once. Perfecto!

My customers didn't bring cash that day so they pay me with praises instead, "This is the best breakfast ever, ma. You are such a good cook. We love you and the pancake so much!"
