Pancakes and Flapjacks

In fact, they probably are the same. In my mind, though, pancakes are a delicate fluffy thing. Like a fine light cake that melts in your mouth, they are cooked to a delicate brown over a medium heat. They have fresh milk and eggs. A flapjack is something that cowboys, surveyors, campers, etc, prepare. They are much thinner and more substantial. They fall somewhere in between a flour tortilla and a pancake. They are made with what you have (which is usually sour milk rather than fresh or even water), eggs if you got um. Could be buckwheat, corn, or a mixture. They are cooked in a hot fry pan til perfect.

Least ways, that's the difference to me.

Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes
Ah, now there is a delicacy. I think of them more like a crepe. Love those rolled with powder sugar and lemon! Yum!

Truly, I think their is a slight difference in all of them. Primarily because of culture and type of ingredients. Some are hard to replicate in other countires.

I found this recipe for american Pancakes, on the web. we liked it first try. one day I forgot the oil. still really good, so I now fix them fat free on purpose. then there was the day I forgot the egg. a lot thicker. tasted more like indian frybread. so tried it that way. wasn't bad at all. more tender than the usual frybread. left out the sugar and there was the original frybread. so now I have 4 things I can make from this one recipe. next I need to try whole wheat flour for the fiber. I bet it would work. :thumb

One per month!

My wife says I can have ONE of these a month. But when I'm on the road working, what does she know? (But please don't tell her I said that!)

I love to cook in well-seasoned cast iron. My oval fajita pan is probably my favorite cookin' tool. I warm it slowly, spread about a teaspoon of good olive oil on it and let it get very hot. (The oil should START to smoke.) One one side I put a round six-ounce steak filet. After a couple of minutes, I put two eggs on the other side. When they are "right", I turn the steak and the eggs. Done correctly the eggs will be an even golden brown on the turned side. When the eggs are almost ready, put about a tablespoon of salsa (I like it hot!) on each, and a thin slice of jalapeño pepper cheese on top. Cover the whole skillet with aluminum foil and turn off the stove burner. Wait 'til the cheese has melted and SERVE! This is a breakfast-for-one recipe. What a way to start a busy day! And so-o-o-o healthful, too.

Clean up? A snap. Pour some hot water on the COOLED skillet and scrub with one of those plastic buns. Rinse. Do not, ever, use soap. Average time to get a well-seasoned skillet clean: about thirty seconds.

DON>one per month

I'm jealous Don! If I'm lucky, Pam will let me have a steak/eggs/cheese breakfast, maybe once in a lifetime!

Now, I did give her that cardiac scare down in Louisiana three years ago, so I suppose I shouldn't be bitter.

Mary>>teaspoon of Oat bran

Now you're talking like my wife, Mary!

Well, Charles, I think there're worse things than talking like your Pam!

But, trust me. Oat bran is a great additive to pancakes. (Not crepes, but pancakes.)

And, yes, it's good for you, too.

Want my recipe for peanut butter oat bran cookies?

Pam would probably even ''let'' you eat one (notice I said, one) of those...

>>peanut butter oat bran

Not a real fan of peanut butter.

But Pam would like the recipe (I just asked) because she knows if she makes the cookies, I won't eat them in one sitting. Please post in new thread!

I have to warn you, however, Pam carries pouches of Oat Bran and ground flax seed with her at all times ... and she's constantly sprinkling it on whatever I happen to be trying to eat or drink!

>>I have to warn you

Your point being?

(I had a feeling you were going to scoff at the peanut butter. Oh well, some people are just beyond help... You don't think a peanut butter cookies thread will be like Okra!, do you?)

No, but a thread on the necessity of a High Fiber diet might be as popular or atleast be in second place!

Most Popular Threads:

#1. Okra
#2. High Fiber Diet

Charles,

DON>one per month

It's Robert, Charles. A little senior moment there? Maybe if you cut back on the cheese.
;)

We eat breakfast twice!!

OK, this thread finally made me join the forum.

We have TWO breakfasts when camping. We rise early to go out and do nature photography, so first breakfast is quick pre-dawn. Cereal, coffee and stuff. Maybe oatmeal if we are feeling especially hungry.

Then it is off just after dawn to capture those inspiring nature images.

Then return to camp after 10a.m. or so when the light is no longer great. By then the early breakfast has worn off, and we are HUNGRY, especially if the weather has been cold. So it is time for Brunch!!

Now we can kick back and relax, plenty of time for food prep. No more photography until late afternoon. We usually have omelets with salsa, breakfast potatoes, warm tortillas, and fresh-squeezed orange juice!! Doesn't that sound good? Omelets might contain spinach and mushrooms. Maybe previous night leftovers. Had shrimp omelets the last time!

NOTE: the omelets are made with eggbeaters - no guilt here. Actually eggbeaters makes a very delicious omelet. Trouble is .. you might be hungry again a couple of hours later....

Hey, Audrey! Are you the one who's going to lead the birding hike when we meet up for the Texas Bluebonnet Casita Fest?

Welcome to the board!

I think I LIKE your approach! I was already wondering, how can I go on that hike AND get a real breakfast? You have the perfect solution...

See ya April 4th!! :cblob :cblob :cblob
