(Recipe) Canadian Pancake Stack

In the spirit of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, I decided to make a Canadian Pancake Stack. Doesn't mean I'm a fan of the Canucks, I just like Canadian pancakes. Bruins all the way!

This recipe makes about 16-18 medium pancakes.
Ingredients you'll need:
- 250g plain flour
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 6 eggs
- 500ml milk
- 2 tsp vanilla sugar
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and vanilla.
Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Put the whites in another bowl and put the yolks into the flour/powder mix. Add the milk to the yolk and flour mix.
Stir the milk and yolk in until just combined.
Whip up the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. This should take about 4-5 minutes. Make sure that everything in the bowl is whipped.
Fold the egg whites into the yolk/milk/flour mix bit by bit. About 1/4 or 1/3 at a time.
Heat a lightly oiled or non-stick pan on a medium heat. Make your pancakes! Use about 4 tbsp of batter per pancake, but of course, you can do whatever size suits you. Flip 'em over when one side is golden brown.
Then serve as a stack with a dollop of butter on top and drizzled with (one of the most Canadian things ever) Maple Syrup.

Toppings are what make pancakes taste so good. You can use butter, Maple Syrup, whipped cream, jams, sugar, lemon wedges, honey, fruits etc. etc. Sometimes savory stuff even (although this is a stack not a crêpe...). BUT THE BEST IS MAPLE AND BUTTER.
