Whenever I make pancakes these days, I use the recipe for Fluffy Pancakes from The New Best Recipe. I don't really eat them, but my son and his friends seem to enjoy them a lot. Recently, I was in Williams-Sonoma, and I happened to buy a Pancake Pen to use in filling cupcake tins with batter. It worked really well for that since it was very easy to standardize the size of the cupcakes since I could control the batter going in very easily. I pulled the Pancake Pen out today and filled it with the pancake batter. Again, it was really easy to control the size of the pancakes, and I made them a lot smaller than I usually do. This improved them so much. I usually find pancakes are sort of soggy, but the smaller pancakes were perfect -- really crispy on the outside with a meltingly tender inside. I recommend this pancake pen wholeheartedly!
