The Secret To Making The Fluffiest Pancakes

Happy National Pancake Day.  I think we should celebrate all week, but that is just me.  Truth be told my wife is the pancake maker in our house.  I'm the bacon & eggs guy.  OK it's microwave bacon, but it's still real bacon.  

I saw some pancake facts today including the following:

  • The first pancakes date back 12,000 years and they were made on a hot rock.  Yum
  • The first pancake recipe was in a book in England in the 1400s
  • The first time the expression "flat as a pancake" was used in 1611.  Not idea who said it, but nice job
  • Aunt Jemima pancake flour was the first ready-mix food sold.  That started in 1889

OK now onto this "flat as a pancake thing".  That is fine and all, but it doesn't work with the term "fluffy pancakes".   Let's put the box of Aunt Jemima or Bisquick away for a minute and try to make "fluffy " pancakes.  Who's up for a Saturday morning challenge?
