Oh, my. You have outdone yourself on this one, Denié. This looks absolutely outstanding! Quick question… before the pan frying, you placed a little baking powder in the mixture. What does that do to the pancake? If I didn’t have any, can I do without and still have it taste the same?
Baking powder is a leavening agent used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods – so I’m not sure how it would come out without the ingredient – maybe too dense…
You are an Amazing Man ! Cheers to you Denie from your HS prom date 🙂
