Today we are giving you some tips on how to make better pancakes!
1. Mix wet and dry ingredients separately, then combine and make smaller pancakes. 2. Always add a small amount of oil to your batter to keep pancakes from sticking. 3. Instead of using baking powder in your batter, use baking soda for a lighter, fluffier pancake. 4. Lumpier batter makes a better pancake than smooth batter. 5. Cake flour rises better than regular flour in pancakes.
FUN FOOD FACT:
For centuries our pioneer forefathers thought that tomatoes were poisonous. Tomatoes originated in the Andean regions of South America. Today, we cannot imagine life without them. Tomatoes are not only edible, but a valuable source of food minerals and vitamins. In terms of consumption, the tomato is the Nation’s fourth most popular fresh-market vegetable behind potatoes, lettuce, and onions. The word “tomato” translates as “apple of love” in many languages.
“Gimme soaky bread with grits and gravy for breakfast, pinto beans with ham hocks for dinner and cracklin’ cornbread in buttermilk for supper and you’ll have yourself a happy man”~~~~Gene Owens, Columnist – talking about Southern treats.
Note: According to Mr. Owens, Soaky bread consists of biscuits (or authentic hoecakes) crumbled into coffee. The bread soaks up the coffee and assumes the texture of mush or pudding. My father used to take a slice of white bread and place it on the saucer that went with his coffee cup. He would sprinkle sugar over the bread and pour part of his coffee over the sugared bread. Once the coffee soaked into the bread he ate it while sippin’ the rest of the coffee in the cup. He called it Soaky bread as well. Has anyone else ever heard of this bread?
