Hiitts From Heloise You Can Serve Pancakes And Stay Happy, Too By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Folks: Well, this morning we all have two choices before us: We can be happy. . . We can be unhappy. . . Let's all be happy and start the day off with a few wonderful time saving ideas. Here is one of my ways oi saving time which I find a necessity. I hate to make hot cakes for breakfast because it dirties two bowls, the family cannot all eat at once considering how long it takes to :ook them, and it does take so long. Too, I personally don't llelois* like hot cakes and pancakes myself. Especially soggy ones. Often, complaints come in that boxed pancakes are not as light, high and fluffy as grandmothers old-fashioned recipe. The answer we found to this after much experimenting was: When a recipe calls for one egg this means the average egg. Some of us buy small size eggs because they are cheaper. In this case, we found that if we used two eggs instead of one. . . the pancakes were much higher and Huffy! The second reason we found was that any time a pancake batter calls for eggs, the same recipe was much better if the yoke was put in the batter and the white beaten separately until stiff, then gently folded into the batter. There was all the difference in the world and when using the same recipe if the eggs were divided this way! When the original recipe called for two eggs, we used three eggs, whether the recipe was boxed or home-made. They were absolutely lush. They were light and when you cut them with a fork they did not become "gooey" and stood much higher. Yes, eggs are expensive I know. But we must get them into our stomach someway so why not put them into that batter? We found it both time and energy saving, less dirty pans, beaters etc. to double the pancake recipe. We used three iron skillets at the same time placing one on each burner of our stove. After they reach the proper temperature,— and you tell this by put- CONTINUED THIS WEEK! ting your finger under the water faucet, getting a few drops of water on it, holding it above the skillet and if the drop of water bounces around when it falls into the skillet. . . it's ready for that pancake batter. After the family was fed and while the skillets were still hot we cooked all of the rest of the pancakes but don't get them quite as brown. Now. . . get some paper napkins out. As each pancake is cooked, place it between the sheets of the paper napkin. The paper napkin allows for some of the steam to escape from the pancakes. We stacked these in batches of threes, then folded a different color napkin around the outside of the three pancakes and placed them in plastic bags. These are now ready for your deep freEee. Those of you who do not have deep freezes may put these where the ice tray ordinarily rests. Next time your family wants pancakes and you are not in the mood to go through all this trouble, remove as many as you will need, and pop them in your toaster! Not only is it time saving, but we found the hotcakes even better, as they were crisper than when they were originally cooked. This is also a dandy snack to have in the refrigerator when our little tykes get hungry. Do not make your pancakes any large than a piece of bread, But they must be at least this large because if you make them too small they will not pop up out of the toaster! Those who do not like sweeti such as syrup on their pancake . . . have you ever tried cranberry sauce? It sure U different, Apple sauce — straight from the can — it excellent too, especially the red sauce. And remember, girls, don't knock thin until you try it. You will find you will not have to dirty your mixing bowl, egg beater, skillet, measuring cup and so forth, thereby eliminating exactly twice that much dish washing, Isn't life fun? Heloise P.S. And did you know waffles can be done the same way? Letter of Laughter Dear Heloise; When pouring coffee in a cup, if the bubbles go to the aide of the cup it a sure to rain. If they stay in the center, the sun will shinel Try it It's fun. A.H.M. Dear Heloise: Would you please have your readers — which are my friends — write me and tell me how to remove coffee and tea stains from table cloths? I sure would appreciate it. Coffee friend Dear Fejka: I have read many ways to do this but have any of you Irctual- ly found a way that really worklT If so, please do pick up that put card and pencil and let ui know exactly what you did. Write to me, c-o this paper. Love, Heloise THE OWAWA HERALD Tuesday, April IS, The Herald pays |5 every week for the best news tip turned if) by a reader. BLUE GRASS SOP FOR SALE FREE ESTIMATES Ph.
