Simple Pancakes

We make pancakes at our house 3-4 times a week. It is something that I know my kids will eat and not be hungry like an hour later. As most of you know pancakes aren't hard but as I was watching the food network one day I got a few tips from them that really made a difference.

1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1-2 teaspoons vanilla (mmm... vanilla)
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Start warming your griddle to 325- ish. or if you are using the stove top set it to about three. Mix the dry ingredients together, and then add your wet ingredients EXCEPT for the egg whites of course. Set batter aside. With your egg whites and cream of tartar beat until they have peaked (that is the right word, right?) and when they are white and fluffy- and when you pull out your beaters they will stand on their own they are done. Fold the egg whites into pancake batter.

Next use about 2-3 tablespoons of butter to grease your griddle/pan. this will give it a pretty golden brown color... (that is one of the tips from the foodnetwork- the other one was the egg whites) They were good tips and they make your pancakes sooo fluffy! yum.

that sounds so good. I like that you mix in whole wheat flour as well. Your food always looks so yummy.

Lots of good ideas. What do you do with the yolks? I know..... the yolks on me. But seriously?
