Zephyr Pancakes

These are incredibly fluffy and delicious

Zephyr Pancakes

2 cups (8 1/2 ounces) all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tablespoons (1 3/4 ounces) sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large egg yolks
1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) heavy cream
1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) buttermilk
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, cream, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry, just until combined – it’s okay if there are a few lumps.

Preheat and lightly grease a heavy skillet or griddle. Scoop the batter onto the griddle with a 1/4 cup measure or a large spoon. Make sure the heat is slightly less than medium. The pancakes will puff up very high. When the first side is golden brown and the edges start to look dry, turn the pancakes over to finish cooking the second side. Remove the pancakes from the griddle and keep them in a warm serving dish until you have enough to feed everyone.

Tips for making pancakes:
Don't over mix the batter. Just fold until combined.
Once you flip the pancakes, do not press it down with the spatula!
