Pittsburgh's Finest Diner Pancakes
Pamela's Diner, with six outposts in and around Pittsburgh, is justly famous for its oversized pancakes. Light and buttery, thinner than regular pancakes but thicker than crêpes, people rave about their crisp edges and wonderful texture. In fact, a certain President liked owner Pam Cohen's pancakes so much, he invited her and co-owner Gail Klingensmith to the White House to cook their signature cakes in person!
Our version of these cakes, based on some "hints" Pamela's has dropped about their secret recipe, produces pancakes we feel are close to the original; but since we've never been to Pamela's Diner, we can't know for certain. Attention, Pamela's fans: try these pancakes, and let us know how they stack up — pun intended!
