One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Labor Day Pancakes

Jay and I made these pancakes on Labor Day (luckily they weren't too labor intensive)

Makes about 36 pancakes:

1 2/3 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 cups milk
1 tsp almond extract
2 large egg whites
vegetable oil for frying

-Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir in the granulated sugar, reserving 1 tbsp for later.
-Whisk the 4 egg yolks in a medium bowl until thickened, then gradually whisk in the milk and almond extract.
-Make a well in the dry ingredients. Slowly pour in the egg yolk mixture whisking constantly until batter is smooth.
-Put the 6 egg whites in a clean bow and whisk to soft peaks, adding the reserving sugar halfway through. Fold into the batter.
-Set a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Splash a little oil to cover the bottom of the pan and heat until hot. Spoon the batter into the pan to make four pancakes. Cook for 2-2 1/2 minutes until the underside is golden brown, then turn the pancakes over and cook for 1 1/2-2 minutes longer to lightly brown the other side.

Serve the pancakes immediately with butter and syrup. Enjoy!

I would use a little less almond next time, but besides that very good. Thanks, Sarah!
