Copycat Perkins Family Restaurant Potato Pancakes

Potato pancakes are so good when served with some applesauce. Last week I made sauerbraten and I prepared these Perkins Potato Pancakes with it. I should have doubled the recipe, because the potato pancakes were gone in seconds!

Copycat Perkins Family Restaurant Pancakes

Makes: 10 pancakes
Ready In: Less than 30 minutes

4 cups Bisquick or Jiffy Baking Mix
3 extra large eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups club soda, room temperature
1/4 cup melted vegetable shortening, room temperature
Place the dry pancake mix into a large bowl.
Add the eggs, club soda and melted shortening. Use a wire whisk to mix carefully until there are no lumps (don’t overmix).
Allow the batter to rest while you preheat your griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.
Use about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in the preheated skillet for each pancake; use 1/2 cup batter for each pancake.
Flip pancake only once when you see open bubbles appear on the surface and the edges appear dry around the pancake.
Makes about 10 pancakes 8″ in diameter.
