  4. Stir into the flour and add enough milk to make a thick creamy mixture, approximately the consistency of very thick whipping cream.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the hot griddle and cook until they bubble on top.
  6. Turn and cook on the other side until golden brown.
  7. While cooking the rest of the mixture store the cooked pancakes between a small folded towel.
