Pancakes By Alton

I think these ingredients should be exactly what Alton Brown used in Good Eats, for his Pancakes episode where he was making a better boxed pancake mix.  He made a double batch and kept the dry ingredients for another use, while I just like to whip up a half batch whenever I need come flapjacks.

I also added an equipment list and an order of operations that I liked.  This batch will feed 4 easily.

Alton's pancakes were so amazing that we never went back to our old way of doing it!
