Oh my gosh, I totally know what you're talking about! There's a little pancake house up there (I think it's Log Cabin Pancake House) that hubby and I drive up there for....I can't wait to go again in June. The BEST pancakes I've ever had. I wish I knew that recipe!

They are the best because you don't have to cook them yourself or clean up the mess, and you are on vacation. laugh.gif

Actually, I'll have to call a friend of mine. I used to have his recipe and I'm not sure what I did with it. Yummy. I know the dry mix had to be sifted three times (or so he said) and he used buttermilk.

I think the one in Pigeon Forge is the same one where we eat! I can't remember the name of the campground, but it's at light #1, right? The food is sooooo good. Yeah, we seriously decided to go up there for our 10th anniversary this year b/c of the pancake place. blush.gif Well, that and it's where we went on our honeymoon. biggrin.gif

Whichever recipe you use, try substituting corn meal for about 1/3 of the flour.

Congrats on the anniversary, my wife and I were married in Gatlinburg in a little chapel across from that log cabin pancake house, I think its now a parking lot for outbacks....

But yep, thats the one, the little old ladies all wear clothes that looks like they are straight out "The Waltons" or something.....

Maybe the pancakes taste so good because you are in the mountains? biggrin.gif

Here is how I make mine.

I do not measure, just dump, so these measurements do not have to be followed to the letter. You will find your favorite way to make them using these ingredients. (try whole wheat flour sometime)


4 cups Self rising flour

1/2 cup Corn meal

1/2 cup oil

2 eggs

Mix

add 1/2 cup sugar (more if you like)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix well


To this crumbly stuff I add buttermilk. I do not measure but add enough to make it all very smooth. Just keep the beaters going. It is OK if it is thick, just make it smooth.

Have the griddle ready with pure butter melted and waiting.......

Have a glass of ICE water handy. Just before you pour the batter on the griddle, add enough ice water to make it the consistancy to pour. Keep the ice water because the batter will thicken again.

Enjoy!

I know it is not the pancake house but this recipe has worked for me for more years than I care to think about.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure if you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

One morning after my mom had spent the night, I made a big breakfast for everyone. She just raved over my fabulous pancakes and asked about the receipe.
I shall share it with you: open the pancake mix box and add water. Add a teaspoon of vanilla to really get fancy. The end.

No matter what "instant type mix" I get they always turn out great and my mom thinks I'm finally becoming all domesticated. biggrin.gif

Follow this as listed: They are the best I've had. The other key part, is only mix the batter enough to get everything wet, don't over mix(stir). Mix by hand.

"Instant" Pancake Mix Recipe courtesy Alton Brown See this recipe on air Monday Apr. 21 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
Show: Good Eats Episode: Flap Jack Do It Again
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda (check expiration date first)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons sugarCombine all of the ingredients in a lidded container. Shake to mix. Use the mix within 3 months.

"INSTANT" PANCAKES:
2 eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups "Instant" Pancake Mix, recipe above
1 stick butter, for greasing the pan
2 cups fresh fruit such as blueberries, if desiredHeat an electric griddle or frying pan to 350 degrees F. Heat oven to 200 degrees F. Whisk together the egg whites and the buttermilk in a small bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the melted butter.

Combine the buttermilk mixture with the egg yolk mixture in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour the liquid ingredients on top of the pancake mix. Using a whisk, mix the batter just enough to bring it together. Don't try to work all the lumps out.

Check to see that the griddle is hot by placing a few drops of water onto to the griddle. The griddle is ready if the water dances across the surface.

Lightly butter the griddle. Wipe off thoroughly with a paper towel. (No butter should be visible.)

Gently ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle and sprinkle on fruit if desired. When bubbles begin to set around the edges of the pancake and the griddle-side of the cake is golden, gently flip the pancakes. Continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancake is set.

Serve immediately or remove to a towel-lined baking sheet and cover with a towel. Hold in a warm place for 20 to 30 minutes.

Yield: 12 pancakes

2 cups flour
1tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
2 eggs
1 T oil
Add enough buttermilk to the batter until it's thick, but pourable. (If you don't use buttermilk, they don't taste right.)
I don't measure exactly. My grandmother taught me and she rarely used measuring spoons or cups.

That sounds gross. It probably looks like pancakes with maggots. Yuk!

Yeah Madea, where's that recipe of your friends??? ;)

I have never heard of putting corn meal in pancakes. There are some great suggestions here - I'll have to try them.

The most important part of ANY trip to Gatlinburg is the eating. Two MUST HAVES when we go: (1) "The Pancake Pantry" (downtown across from the cedar mall.) I always get their Georgia Peach pancakes that are stuffed with a cream cheese mixture and topped with fresh peaches. YUMMMMM. (2) "The Peddler". Awesome atmosphere overlooking the creek while enjoying their freshly hand cut aged and tender steaks.

I was reading through all this when I realized it was started 3 years ago. :) RE: Alton Browns's recipe - what is the reason for adding the egg whites to the buttermilk and the yolks to the butter before adding to the dry ingredients?

This is probably not what you are after, but for people that need a low carb alternative:

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water (for puffier pancakes, you can use sparkling water)
  • 2 T oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 T sweetener (splenda)
Preparation: Mix ingredients together and cook as you would other pancakes. I like to use a nonstick pan with a little pam. The only real difference is that they won't "bubble" on top the same way as regular pancakes. Flip them when the underside is brown.



Yield: Six 4-inch pancakes

Nutritional Information: Each pancake has 1 gram effective carbohydrate, plus 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and 155 calories.
