Basic Pancake Batter

May 17, 2011

Hey kids, want some pancakes? Too bad. I am only making the batter.

No, I am not torturing my children again tonight. We just had a change of plans. I was going to make pancakes for dinner, but we decided to go out for Greek food one more time before Sarah heads off to Greece in three days. This time we chose a restaurant on the other side of the river, It’s Greek To Me. It didn’t have the same atmosphere as Christos, but the menu had a lot of variety and the food was delicious. It’s Greek To Me had more of a family feel to it and less “date night” quality, which actually probably suited us better. Sarah had two appetizers for dinner, Saganaki (Fried cheese) and Tiropita (Cheese Pie). We didn’t get a chance to try the Tiropita the last time out and it seemed like something our cheese lover would enjoy. She ate about half of the rather large appetizer and declared it so-so. She ate all the Saganaki and some pita so I don’t think she’ll starve on her trip, but I’m pretty sure she is more interested in the sites than the food. I had an amazing dish that was both scallops and lamb chops. Both the lamb chops and the scallops were cooked perfectly and they were served with some roasted red pepper and lettuce with a vinaigrette dressing – you wouldn’t exactly call it a salad. Max ordered a Gyro and got a pile of Gyro meat bigger than his head and made it all disappear in about five minutes. It was a good meal for a good price and our waiter while not exactly attentive was very patient.

We stopped and bought some vanilla ice cream on the way home and I just want to say that I was right. The cookie brittle went very well with the ice cream. Very well indeed.

Thanks to my stand mixer the pancake batter was super easy to make. I just dumped everything into the mixer and turned it on. The batter is in the fridge and will probably be even better after setting overnight.
