At the beginning of this year (or the end of last year) I started a quest to find the perfect pancake recipe. Not sure how it started, but it did and now I'm here. I Googled the internets, browsed food blogs, and even tried the back of Bisquick boxes. I must have made stacks and stacks and stacks of pancakes but never was satisfied with any of them. I was just about to give up on this seemingly unreachable quest until I stumbled upon a crazy man and his tattoos. I guess that's how the best things in life happen: they find you. cue dramatic orchestral music. After all the searching and experimenting I'd done in the realm of pancakes, I was weary of Matty Matheson's self-proclaimed "Fluffiest Pancake Recipe". I decided to give the guy a chance since I was on my lunch break and had nothing better to do. The video proved to be entertaining and informative. The methodology was completely different that any pancake recipe I'd cooked before so I was veeeeeeeeeeeery interested to test this recipe.
It was around midnight but I had a couple of guinea pigs who had the munchies so all systems were go. I got to work and had trouble with the first couple because I'd made them too big. But let me tell you. This Matty Matheson--he knows what he's doing. I was over the moon. I was on cloud nine. I found the Holy Grail of pancakes, guys. The search is over. I finished cooking the rest of the batter and served the little stacks to the guinea pigs. They were in agreement. It was a good night.
Now for some of you, you like your pancakes flat and tasteless. That's fine. Some of you like your pancakes rubbery and greasy. That's fine, too. BUT NOT IN THIS HOUSE. We do our pancakes thick and fluffy and cute. So if that's how you like to party, come on over. You're welcome here. If you want to see if thick and fluffy is for you, here's the recipe. Here's the video. Fair warning: the video would probably be rated R, and the recipe itself, probably PG-13.
I would have totally illustrated the recipe for you guys like last time, but I realized I don't like illustrating recipes. It sounded cool in my head at first but I just don't find any joy in drawing out ingredients and cooking steps. I much rather spend time baking and eating. Just being real here. So you guys get my edited photos and links instead. Delicious links. Let me know what you guys think about the pancakes. We can still be friends if you don't like 'em!
