The Best Pancakes Ever!
In the quest to find fantastic egg recipies we have found this one for pancakes. These are the big fat fluffy American ones not those thin things we eat on Shrove Tuesday here in the UK.
We ran down to the chickens grabbed ourselves some eggs, picked some fresh raspberries and served them with gallons of maple syrup.

First separate the eggs, putting the whites into one bowl and the yolks into another. Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter. Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. (Due to the large amount of egg whisking I seem to be doing I have finally bought myself an electric whisk. Hallelujah!) Fold into the batter – it is now ready to use.
Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat. Pour some of your batter into the pan and fry for a couple of minutes until it starts to look golden and firm. NO oil needed. I added some chocolate chips to the batter at this stage onto the uncooked side before turning over. Not large chunks though. These tended to burn. Continue frying until both sides are golden.
