Many years ago, like around 1998, maybe. I found a recipe, I can't remember where, for pancakes made with steel cut oats. All I can remember about the recipe is that it had a little vanilla in it, and steel cut oats, and it had to sit in the fridge overnight so that the oats would soften enough for cooking the next morning.
They were the best pancakes ever.
I can't find the recipe. I've seen a few recipes online but none of them seem right. It could have come from a magazine, or it could have come from a Food TV show, but I seem to see print in my head when I try to think of it. I -think- it was in a magazine. I've been through my magazines, and I can't find it in any of the ones I still have.
Anyway, before I start trying to experiment (I have a vague sense that it wasn't an "obvious" pancake recipe where you just add steel cut oats, but that it has some important differences in it) with pancake recipes I'm able to find to see if I can hit on it, I thought I'd ask around here to see if anyone could pinpoint it or something like it.
