Is there anything better then a fluffy pancake for breakfast? It is simple to cook pancakes over the grill, as long as you have a griddle place!
- 3 cups plus 2 tablespoons cake flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups milk, plus more if needed for thinning
- 3 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for buttering the griddle
- Mix together the cake flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Mix together the milk, vanilla and eggs in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring very gently until just combined. Melt the butter and add it to the batter, stirring gently to combine. Stir in more milk if needed for thinning; the batter should not be overly thick.
- Heat your grill to a medium-high heat. If you are using a gas grill, brush the gas grill grates with vegetable oil with a pastry brush. Turn the grill on high for 10 to 15 minutes with the lid closed. After 15 minutes scrape the grill grates clean with a grill brush and reduce the temperature to a medium-high heat. If you are using a charcoal grill, burn the coals until they are gray and white with ash, about 30 to 45 minutes. Oil the grill in the same fashion as with the gas grill. Distribute the coals so that there is an even layer of heat on every part of the grill.
- Spray a griddle pan or saute pan generously with cooking spray. You could also grease the pan with butter or vegetable oil.
- Spoon batter onto the griddle to form round pancakes. For average-sized pancakes use a 1/4-cup measuring cup filled halfway with batter. If you are using a charcoal grill, use a wooden stick to move the coals around if there are any coals that look like they are dying out. Pancakes need steady, even heating to properly cook.
- Wait for the pancakes to bubble up and the edges to start drying. Then flip them over with a spatula. Be careful when flipping pancakes over not to keep your hands over the grill for too long, as it is very hot and the heat will burn your skin.
- Cook for no more than three minutes on the other side. Peek under the pancakes using the spatula to make sure that the underside is browned. Place the pancakes in an aluminum foil pan and cover with aluminum foil. This keeps the pancakes warm while you cook another batch and keeps insects and animals out. Repeat the process until you have made enough pancakes to feed your family.
- Serve with an assortment of your favorite pancake toppings, such as mini chocolate chips, fresh blueberries, flavored yogurt, sliced bananas and one of the many fabulous Tevis Home jellies.
