    They are hard to make.

    I get that impression. I'd like to try sometime, but I think I need to perfect pancakes first. I don't think I have the touch needed to make crêpes just yet.

    ...

    Highly recommend. I can say this about making pancakes, mix very sparingly. The more you beat them the less they fluff up.


    Do not beat it too hard. Noted.

    Would posting about waffles be off topic? I dont want to derail the thread.

    Waffles are welcome, and would not be considered a derail of my pancake thread. It's sort of a stretch from pancakes, but I [​IMG] waffles, so I'm willing to make an exception. In fact, I hope to make a waffle iron the next piece of kitchen equipment I purchase.

    oh, I just remembered: pancakes with cranberries and white chocolate chips. Kinda desserty, though.

    MrsG associates waffles with dessert and prefers pancakes for breakfast. It has something to do with them being a dessert food for Europeans (mum and pop are Brits), but it's a problem because I'm a waffle man and she's a pancake lady.

    Now you've both made me hungry for pancakes. [​IMG] Blueberries are the key to a good pancake.

    I'm hungry all of a sudden. [​IMG]

    mee too.

    ^^ actually, don't overmix. Big distinction. You want your pancake batter lumpy. Alton Brown says 10 times around the bowl with the whisk, and you're done mixing. I sometimes go 10 1/2 or maybe even a full 11 times around just to show Alton who's the boss in my kitchen.

    pish-posh. you just need to make sure and let the batter rest for a good while after mixing. very excitable glutens. once you master the ladle/pivot-the-pan thing, they're dead easy.

    saucemaster - iirc, he lost a good amount of weight a few years back. Major kudos.

    That sauce guy was a good cat.

    matt - the liberatorLibertarian, smart
    we timed out AF once and said that we would free him if people made donations to charity in a silent auction, and whoever offered the highest to free-the-fran would not only live with lavish honor and praise, but we be donned "the liberator" for returning AF's liberty.
    My fault. Some n00b was scratching at CT once and J and I were chatting about it on AIM. I said that I hate it when established members get chased away by n00bs, and that CT had been around forever..."if SF was a mafia movie, then he'd be like, a Made Guy"...next morning, he had a title.

    My title stems from an inside joke. It doesn't really mean anything explainable. You had to be there.
