Julia doesn’t have a ‘job’. Rather, she takes care of Corbin and the house while I deal with “Improving the human condition through innovation, leadership, and design.” And Corbin likes to start his day around 7:00 am which means Julia does too. That is, Monday through Friday -weekends and holidays, he’s all mine. That’s not a problem since I can’t sleep past 8:00am to save my life and am usually up by 7:00 anyways.
One of the benefits of this arrangement is that I get to make breakfast and I usually make chocolate chip pancakes. They’re like regular pancakes except I mix in chocolate chips and Cinnamon into the batter before cooking. Unfortunately, I make them too thick. Thick like a scone. They taste fine, but they are a little too heavy for my liking.
I carefully follow the directions and measure out the portions described but it continues to come out wrong. Now Julia pointed out that I need to add more water but finding the right amount that keeps if from turning into a blintz. I’ve made instant and I’ve made from scratch, but i still can’t seem to find the right balance of wet to dry ingredients to make nice fluffy pancakes that melt in your mouth.
Any advice would be appreciated.
