Skinny Pancakes

I want to be real clear here. By “skinny” I don’t mean these pancakes are “light”. They are skinny though and similar to dutch pancakes. These tender and spongy pancakes long to be drenched in maple syrup or dutch butter (recipe below). They were introduced to us by Dad and Jake and were a morning staple at their home. Along with the fire being lit and fresh coffee brewed. Those are some of the best memories I have. Being in the lovely home that they built together was a quiet reprieve from city life. As quiet as pancakes bubbling, fire cracking and coffee dripping can be. We, in turn, introduced them to our friends and it wasn’t unusual to have friends show up for skinny pancakes the morning after a night out. Someone, Steph or I likely, shouted out the invite out before leaving the party. We always have extra room at our table. -bvox

Skinny Pancakes
Source: Jake

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 3 cups milk

Mix all ingredients together, batter will be thin. Melt some oil and butter on a hot griddle (Do this only the first time). Ladle batter on griddle to which ever size you prefer. After the surface of the pancakes starts bubbling, flip them over with confidence.

Dutch Butter

  • ½  cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup Rogers Golden Syrup

Heat the cream for a few minutes on low heat and add RGS. Heat but don’t boil. If you have a big crowd, use 1 cup of each but that makes a lot.

Skinny Pancake Facts:

  • When you take a pancake off of the plate, you have to use your fingers, not a fork
  • They can be frozen ahead of time, just put wax paper between each pancake. (Like Jake did for Ted’s 65 birthday)
  • Bonnie does not like it if you veer from the  recipe (as I found out when Steph added buttermilk instead of milk once)
  • They taste best when eaten with friends and family
  • They are good the next day toasted
