I just rummaged around in packed boxes and came up with these, here where my cooking facilities are minimal, so instead of cooking and eating, I will put them in the blog to satisfy my craving.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 t soda
2 t cream of tartar
1 t salt
1 egg beaten
3 T melted shortening
1 cup milk
Stir only to mix
This should be stirred as little as possible to make it fairly uniform as otherwise gluten will form
Cook on a hot seasoned or buttered pan
This forms a very light and fluffy batter similar to a mousse
1/4 cup measures must be spread around manually in the pan as it will form a mound without doing that. It makes very light and fluffy pancakes. Add a little more milk to make a more traditional batter. Add blueberries or other berries or apples. Try with chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts. soak raisins in brandy till they plump and add them with as little liquid as possible.
