I like pancakes but am no perfectionist on the food. I only like a certain kind, the throwback, diner style, greasy and fluffy kind. Made in bacon grease. Glad I found out last year that I don't have to feel guilty about bacon grease! Cooking in it is actually healthy?!?! Who knew! Grandma was right after all. Always use uncured, nitrate and hormone free bacon. Then save that grease and fry away guilt free.
This is my perfect pancake. Tall, fluffy, golden. Serve with a little or a whole lot of Sun Ripened Peach Syrup and a little whip cream, perfect Saturday morning.
