Griddle Cakes and Sour Milk Griddle Cakes

Nothing says down home like calling pancakes griddle cakes.

A bit of generalized pancake advice: you don’t want your pan (or griddle, as the case may be) to be too hot. Medium-low, or if you’re using an electric griddle, 375 deg. Much hotter than that and you’ll end up with a pancake that’s crispy on the outside but raw in the middle. Not yesterdelicious.

(I’m waiting for someone to say that back to me so I can react like this…)
