I love flapjacks/pancakes but I always wondered why some places were better than my homemade version. The recipe calls for flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, egg, milk and oil or butter. For decades, I have always used oil. But one day last summer I used butter. And that was the difference; my pancakes tasted and looked like old fashioned pancakes. They were great. So great that it inspired me to open up an international chain of ZackyDog flapjack stands. Thanks for reading.
