Does anyone have a really good tasting pancake recipe? For some reason, I'm craving carbs today. It's been years since I've allowed myself to have something like pancakes, so I think I'm due at least one good stack. Anything unique or unusual recipe wise, would be appreciated.

I love Alton Brown on the Food Network. He makes his own pancake mix. I have put the recipe below. I figure if you are going to go out and do it...the he's the go to guy for you! "Instant" Pancake Mix Recipe courtesy Alton Brown 6 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda (check expiration date first) 3 teaspoons baking powder 1 tablespoon kosher salt 2 tablespoons sugar Combine all of the ingredients in a lidded container. Shake to mix. Use the mix within 3 months. "INSTANT" PANCAKES: 2 eggs, separated 2 cups buttermilk 4 tablespoons melted butter 2 cups "Instant" Pancake Mix, recipe above 1 stick butter, for greasing the pan 2 cups fresh fruit such as blueberries, if desired Heat an electric griddle or frying pan to 350 degrees F. Heat oven to 200 degrees F. Whisk together the egg whites and the buttermilk in a small bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the melted butter. Combine the buttermilk mixture with the egg yolk mixture in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour the liquid ingredients on top of the pancake mix. Using a whisk, mix the batter just enough to bring it together. Don't try to work all the lumps out. Check to see that the griddle is hot by placing a few drops of water onto to the griddle. The griddle is ready if the water dances across the surface. Lightly butter the griddle. Wipe off thoroughly with a paper towel. (No butter should be visible.) Gently ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle and sprinkle on fruit if desired. When bubbles begin to set around the edges of the pancake and the griddle-side of the cake is golden, gently flip the pancakes. Continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancake is set. Serve immediately or remove to a towel-lined baking sheet and cover with a towel. Hold in a warm place for 20 to 30 minutes. Yield: 12 pancakes

That sounds divine! I hope you don't mind if I add this one to my personal at-home cookbook. My husband is going to freak (in a good way!) when I serve pancakes for breakfast this week. Both of us have been on perpetual diets for ten years, on and off again. He'll think it's his birthday. Thanks again! Be well.

It's OK to have carbs, just make them health ones. Use wheat or wholegrain flours instead of white flour. I just posted a recipe for "super pancakes" which are whole wheat pancakes with blueberries, bananas and walnuts added. They're really filling, I can't even finish 2 of them!
