"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

2 c. flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar
7 Tbsp butter
4 large eggs
1 3/4 c. milk

Directions:
Directions:
get out a large bowl. Not a super huge one, maybe like the same size you might eat popcorn out of. But it has to be a bowl, not just something that might hold popcorn. DO NOT USE A POPCORN BAG for pancake batter (trust me!). OK, so you got the bowl (it can be any color you want btw). Now put all the dry ingredients into the any-color-large-ish bowl and whisk it together. OK - here comes the tricky part. Get another bowl that is smaller than the last one, but bigger than a regular cereal bowl. Also it needs to be microwave safe. Again, DO NOT USE A POPCORN BAG. Just because it can be put in the microwave does not make it appropriate for this application. Now that you have your microwave-safe-medium-type bowl, put the butter in it. The smell of butter in the microwave may remind you of popcorn, but that is not what you need to be thinking about right now. Your only concern right now needs to be nuking the crap out of that butter without letting it make a giant mess in the microwave. Get your melted butter out of there and set it on the counter. Now your butter will go back to a solid state in anywhere from 5 to 8 hours, depending on room temperature, so you gotta act fast. If you learned anything from Rachel Ray, you would have got your eggs and milk out of the fridge at the same time you got your butter out. Crack your eggs and add them into your melted butter and whisk them together. Add your milk and whisk again. Try not to spill. As soon as your done, add the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Mix together just until combined. Dont be dismayed if you have a couple of lumps. They will most likely cook out. If you enjoy chewy pancakes, then whisk that batter until your arm is sore.
Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. These are way better if you cook them. So get out a big pan, or a griddle or something like that. You want medium heat. Put a couple drops of water on the cooking surface, and when the water dances, you are ready to cook. If you need help cooking pancakes, call me. Its about time you called me anyway. Seriously, you never call me. Did I say something to make you mad or something? Just call. Hey, maybe you could call me to tell me how yummy your pancakes are.
