April Morning pancakes

Inspired by a beautiful April spring day, and a recent (while in Chicago) visit to The Spice House (www.the spicehouse.com) in Evanston IL where I procured, among other things, a re-supply of their “Lakeshore Drive” seasoning, and – for this recipe – their “Toasted Onion, Minced”, and dried Chervil… I suppose you could use ordinary dried diced onion if you don’t have the “toasted onion” mentioned, but the flavor of their “toasted onion” is “febbalus” (Bayern for ‘fabulous’…das Schmekt!!)

Yield: 4-6 servings
Collections: American Breakfast Brunch

April Morning pancakes Recipe

Ingredients
Preparation Instructions

Mix dry ingredients together. In a seperate bowl combine oil, eggs and milk and add to dry ingredients to make a batter, fold the corn into the batter. Preheat griddle between “low’ and “medium” heat – lightly oil the griddle – ladle on 4”-5” discs - let them cook until golden brown on each side (look for bubbles, turn once).

We served them 4 ways:
* with a little maple syrup, or
* with a little honey, or
* with chopped fresh tomato topped with a soft-center (runny yolk) fried egg, or
* with some medium-heat prepared salsa.

Wonderful served with a dollop of creme fraiche and chives.

Yield: 4-6 servings
Helpful Hints

I liked the honey best (with Aldi-brand German Roast coffee); Mary liked the tomato with the fried egg – all of these are “good!!!” however, and would also be a febbulus brunch with some bacon or ham, and roasted carrots, brined cucumber and garbanzo bean salad, and poached or scrambled eggs… and a Bloody Mary, or a hoppy lager or a hefe weissen…

Guten appetit !

Hi! I'd like to try this recipe, but in the instructions they indicate to add oil to make the batter and there is no oil type or quantity indicated in the ingredients section. For now, I'll just put an average rating, until I can get the right recipe dialed in. Looks good, though.
