Grandma Shirley’s Pancake/Waffle Recipe
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup white sugar (granulated)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted real butter (1/2 stick)
1 tsp. vanilla 2 eggs, separated into yolks and whites
Start with three (3) bowls.In a small bowl: Separate the 2 egg whites from the yolks, putting the whites in the small bowl and the yolks in the medium bowl (not shown), to later mix with the liquid ingredients .With a hand mixer, beat the 2 egg whites
Until they are stiff peaks; but not too dry. Tapping off excess.
In a medium bowl: Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Using the same hand mixer, don’t worry that it has a bit of egg white, mix up these 4 ingredients in this separate bowl.In another medium bowl:Still using the same hand mixer, now with a bit of egg white and flour mixture on the beaters, combine the milk, melted butter or margarine, vanilla and egg yolks until well mixed.
Your batter may be lumpy like this or smooth, it all depends on the temperature of the melted butter when you add in the milk.
EITHER way, it works out just fine!
Now, pour the mixed liquid ingredients into the bowl with the combined dry ingredients and mix well with the same hand mixer.Take the hand mixer out, tap off any excess batter.
With a rubber spatula, NOT the mixer, carefully fold in the egg whites just until combined.
Cook as desired.
