My New-to-Me Spatula (Flipper/Turner)

Spatula

At nearly 6 inches across, my rummage sale find of a spatula is quite impressive!  I’ve always wanted one of these, but just never found one that seems just right.  The brand new ones always have longer handles and seem unwieldy.  This one, found just last week at our local Humane Society rummage sale, has a nice short handle, with a very dense, wood-like handle with smooth rivets to hold the metal.  It feels good in the hand – always an important criterion for a hand tool of any sort.  This vintage version was worth waiting for.

Trying it out on pancakes yesterday morning was a revelation.  Such ease to accomplish the flipping task!  Each whole cake fully supported – nice!  I think this will be great for fish fillets too.  It was definitely worth the $1 price tag and the space in the drawer.

Pancakes Made Simple

1.5 C. flour

2 t. baking powder

1 t. salt

1 T. white sugar

1.25 C. milk

1 egg

3 T. melted butter

Sometimes I use a variety of flours.  Yesterday was a combination of spelt and corn flours.  Also, I skipped the melted butter and just used watered down cream for the milk which held plenty of fat.  That way the recipe comes together super quick.  This recipe is very adaptable to lots of variations!

My wife does like my pancakes especially with honey. Yours look good.

Thanks, Tim! Do you have any special kitchen equipment that makes them easier to make?

A good wrist to flip them successfully helps. I just have a small frying pan and an old wooden spatula. My wife loves them though.

You sound very expert in your technique!
