I love eating at i-hop and every time i go there i wonder how they make such soft and perfect pancakes. Has anybody ever tried making them at home? Can somebody share a recipe ?

This one I got in school and I use it all the time. You can add blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas, anything you really want, if you like. Buttermilk Pancakes Yield: 16 2 eggs 2 cup buttermilk ¼ cup vegetable oil 2 cup flour 2 tbsp. sugar 2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda 1. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. 2. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. 3. Beat the egg yolks with the buttermilk and oil. 4. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together. 5. Combine the liquid with the dry ingredients until smooth but don’t over mix. 6. Fold in or gently mix the beaten egg whites into the batter. 7. Lightly grease a Teflon pan(s), electric frying pan, or griddle. Start heating on medium-high. 8. Test the pan by putting a few drops of water in the pan, when it bubbles and skitters around the pan, it is hot enough. 9. Pour about ¼ cup batter onto the hot pan for each pancake. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Be sure it is cooked in the middle. 10. Serve with butter and syrup or powdered sugar or jam.

I posted this for Everlasting in an earlier thread. Here go some samples of mine that can give you a template. Using club soda can help get fluffier pancakes but you don't use a lot of it. If you end up with excess try adding a little more flour to compensate. Also if you use an instant mix, club soda can work there (with most mixtures) ********************************** Honey milk pancakes 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon of sugar 1 cup milk 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil 1 egg 1 tablespoon honey syrup (Optional: 1/2 cup of club soda or so) Use one bowl to combine flour, baking powder and salt. Use a different bowl to combine egg, milk (and/or club soda if you choose), oil and syrup Then stir into dry ingredients in other bowl until blended Drop the batter in good quantities into your skillet or griddle. Cook once on each side turning when the bubbles form on top ******************************* Applebit Pancakes 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon of sugar 1 cup milk 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil 1 egg 1 or 2 minced apples 2 to 3 apples largely diced (Optional: 1 more apple with diced so its a bit larger than minced) (Optional: 1/2 cup of club soda or so) Combine your dry ingredients in one bowl and the other ingredients in a separate bowl. Then mix the wet into the dry ingredients throughly. Drop off 1/4-1/3 cup fulls of batter into your griddle or skillet. Turn when you start to see bubbles on top. Cook till you see golden brown. Meanwhile take larger diced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and about 1/4 cup of water and mix that together. Preheat the oven for 350. Place the mixture in a suitable dish and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown and fruit is tender. There's a topping for you Also whipped cream can work too. *********************************** Orange, Lemon and Honey Cakes 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon of sugar 1 cup milk 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil 1 egg 1 or 2 minced oranges (or as best as you can get them:)) 1 tablespoon of honey 1/2-1 tablespoon of lemon juice Again, same old story. Dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ones in the other, blend well. Cook once on each side, 1st side till the bubbles occur, 2nd side till golden/golden brown Naturally adjustments will happen based on what you need and what you prefer in the pancakes. You can use the applebit recipe as a template for the other fruits I suggested earlier (strawberries, blueberries, raisins, peaches) You can also put nuts like almonds, cashews. You can put in candies, like chocolate chips. I wish you luck and happiness with the new additions to your cooking arsenal Serenidity

Hi Serenidity! I love eating pancakes too. I often bake pancakes at home every time we have a visitor. Just buy the right recipe and follow the ways on how to bake it. Here it goes! Just buy the following: -3 eggs (if you want to have many pancakes buy more eggs) -all purpose flour (if you only have 3 eggs you'll need 1/2 of it) -butter, melted -sugar -salt -butter (not melted) -sliced almonds, toasted -lemon juice Steps on how to make pancakes: First beat the eggs on a medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended (you can use a non-electric mixer too. Then add flour, beat until smooth.Add milk butter (melted) and salt, beat until batter is smooth. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 15 minutes until the pancake is golden brown. sprinkle with sugar and toasted almonds. Combine butter and lemon juice heat until butter melts, Waalah! you have a souce. Serve into butter and enjoy eating! Hope you can make your own, yummy pancake! Good luck! ^_^
