Notes

I love pancakes. I saw the trick of adding melted butter to cold milk... somewhere. Probably Cooks Illustrated. It was for something else, but in the pancakes it makes for light, airy, yet rich and buttery deliciousness. The big trick with pancakes is getting the heat right. Too hot and they burn, not hot enough and they are tough. Medium to medium-high is the best, depending on your stove. And don't fiddle with them! Let them sit or they won't brown well.

We ran out of milk and had only boiled custard. It was one of those great "ah-ha" moments when lazy makes crazy good!

A dash of local for every season
