Preheat electric griddle to 350, or skillet on stove between medium & medium-high. Pan is the right temperature when drops of water dance around on the pan.
- 2 C fruit juice (orange or apple)
- 1/4 C oil
- 2 duck eggs (or chicken eggs if you don’t have ducks)
- 2 C flour (all-purpose, or Bob’s Red Mill AP-GF)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
Pour juice into 2-qt measuring cup up to the 2-cup line. Add cooking oil equal to 1/4 cup (precision is not necessary, just get close). Add remaining ingredients and mix well. (note – if you don’t have a 2-quart measuring cup, or if you like to wash lots of dirty dishes, the batter can be mixed an any bowl/pitcher)
Pour batter onto hot griddle/pan. Hotcakes are ready to flip when there are little holes all over the top – turn over so that both sides are cooked.
