Pancakes are every day food

I know that weekday mornings can get a bit frantic, and grabbing a banana or granola bar on the run seems like the best we can do some days. Mark Bittman makes a compelling case for bringing back the pancake into our weekly repetoire. When my 2 1/2 year old insisted on pancakes on a Wednesday morning a few weeks ago, and an 8:30 meeting loomed ahead, I found out how quickly the process goes. And it was strangely satisfying to know that I could whip up a batch and have them on the table in less than 10 minutes.

Go ahead.. try it yourself.
