What A Difference A Mixer Makes

We made pancakes this morning. Nothing fancy, nothing was different except the mixer. I tell you what, the Kitchen Aid mixer makes a HUGE difference! I have made pancakes many times and never been thrilled with the results. Today was the first time I have made and happily devoured pancakes!


  • 1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 2  teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1  teaspoon  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  cup  fat-free egg substitute or 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4  cups  low-fat milk
  • 3  tablespoons  shortening, melted


1. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in KitchenAid Stand Mixer bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer. Turn to Speed 4 and mix until ingredients are combined, about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and mix until smooth, about 15 seconds.

3. Spray griddle or heavy skillet with no-stick cooking spray. Heat griddle to medium-high heat. Pour about 1/3 cup batter for each pancake onto griddle.

4. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until bubbles form on surface and edges become dry. Turn and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until golden brown on underside.
