Conquering the world one bikini at a time

Oh whatever, so I am still on my Gwyneth Paltrow kick.  What can I say I am enchanted with her cooking style.  What better day to make pancakes from scratch than on a Sunday morning and that is just what I did this past weekend.  Again, it was so easy that I was left thinking the same thing as when I was making the Blueberry Muffins .  Gwyneth says, "Invest in what's real.  Drink while you cook.  Make it fun.  It will be what it will be."  I like her style and I like her pancakes.

Bruce Paltrow's
World - Famous Pancakes
1 1/2 cups unbleached flower
3 tbsp sugar
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 eggs (preferably organic)
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly, plus 1/2 tsp per batch to grease pan
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
About 1/2 cup whole milk
Maple syrup

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.  Whisk eggs, 3 tbsp butter and buttermilk in another bowl.  Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined.  (small lumps are fine.)  Cover batter and let rest overnight in the refrigerator.  Heat a large greased griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add milk to batter until it reaches desired consistency;  the more milk, the thinner and more delicate the pancakes.  Working in batches of three pancakes, spoon batter onto griddle or skillet.  Cook until surface of pancake is covered with bubbles, 2 to 3 minuets.  Flip and cook the other side until golden, 2 to 3 minuets.  Drizzle warmed maple syrup over the pancakes.  Serve.
