Joy Of Cooking Pancakes

koolaidmoms Some nights dinner needs to be easy and be comforting. It’s time to get ready for the icy rain and snow combination of tonight. This means we have to get everyone home so that all plans can be canceled. For the rare occasion that something happens, we have lit the fire and found all of the candles. The obligatory bread, milk and other necessities were purchased at the grocery store. But, we also got yeast, cheese, granola bars, and fruit cups to have for baking and snacks. Perhaps some bread loafs and hot cocoa will be made.

However, the first thing we do is make pancakes.


The Joy of Cooking’s pancake recipe was our first attempt at making a homemade one 25 years ago. Bisquik mixed pancakes was all we had before that. The best part about making pancakes from scratch was how easy they were to prepare.

These pancakes can be dense and thick. These pancakes are dense and heavy. These pancakes are good for sticking to your ribs.

Buttermilk Pancakes Are Joyful In The Morning

ROB KASPER – Since the new year was here, I wanted to give a try to a brand new way of making buttermilk pancakes.

The old and the new recipes were both taken from different editions of Joy of Cooking. It is possible that the buttermilk pancake recipe originally appeared in the “Joy of Cooking” where it was repeatedly reprinted over the years.

A new recipe for buttermilk pancakes appeared in the Joy of Cooking just before Christmas. (Scribner. 1997, $30). This “all new” cookbook is filled with revised recipes and cooking theories, and in the few weeks it has been in the bookstores it hascreated a sensation, selling like you-know what.

Although I wish I could say I was open to learning new things, I don’t believe so. I know this to be a lie. I am hungry for routine early in the morning. Not innovation.

However, reading news articles about people making New Years’ resolutions and promising new bold approaches for next year got me all excited. The idea of making buttermilk pancakes was something I wanted to attempt. I didn’t want to attempt too much change too fast. Instead of making new pancakes I decided to make a batch from the same recipe.

The old and the new methods of baking buttermilk pancakes immediately struck me.

Buttermilk pancakes received better billing in my old Joy, a 20th edition of the 1975 recipe. This entire buttermilk pancake recipe was published. But, in the revised version buttermilk pancakes will be treated as a variation on the original recipe. You can substitute buttermilk instead of milk, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the original recipe and you’ll have buttermilk pancakes. Maybe so, but it seemed to me that after all those years of delivering such delight, the venerable old recipe deserved more space and more attention.

Although the ingredients were identical, the proportions of the different recipes varied. The biggest difference was that the new version used more egg. Two eggs were mixed with 1 1/2 cups flour in the new version and one egg with 1 cup flour in old. The batter I got was more yellowed than my usual. The new batter looked as though he had just moved from Texas to Florida and gained weight. He was also very pale. As the new batter sat beside them, the old batter appeared pale and small.

The recipe called for 3 Tbsp of sugar instead of the usual 1 Tbsp. But this didn’t matter to me because, being a sour sort, I refuse to put any sugar in my morning pancakes.) I cooked up both versions and fed them to family members and to a handful of their teen-age and preteen buddies, who happened to be having breakfast at our house on New Year’s Day. Both the men were willing to let me know which pancake was their favorite, as long as they didn’t stop eating. According to me, one of my food-foropinion deals received a “Sure,” answer. In brief, the guys preferred the old-recipe buttermilk pancakes to the ones made with the new recipe. However, the main reason for their preference seemed to be that I had burned a few of the new ones.

Cornmeal is a delicious pancake. This was what colonial Americans found. Early European settlers practically lived on a version of cornmeal pancakes called “johnnycakes.” So what could be more appropriate at Thanksgiving time? Bet you never knew that history could be so tasty.

Cornmeal Pancakes Recipe. Although we are fond of making wheat flour pancakes, it is also a favorite to make with other grains.

The basic recipe for pancakes can be found here: Combine flour (corn or wheat, buckwheat) with eggs and baking powder. Put the mixture onto a griddle. Cook until one side is done. Turn it and continue cooking. Serve with butter or maple syrup, and then eat.

The predominant ingredient in these pancakes is cornmeal. But, to make them more tender we added some all purpose (wheat flour). You have the option of using white or yellow cornmeal in fine, medium, and coarse grinding. A coarse grind makes a pancake that is slightly more texture (which we like).

The traditional recipe for pancakes we will be sharing is one we discovered in The Joy of Cooking. Prep times are about 12 minutes. You will need to cook each batch of pancakes for 3-4 minutes.

This recipe makes about 12 4 inch pancakes. If refrigerated in a sealed container, leftovers will keep for up to a day. Rewarm them by heating in the microwave.

One cup white or yellow cornmeal; a coarser grind makes a smoother pancake.

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt (or to your taste; for regular table salt use half the amount)
