                         -----L.A.TIMES FOOD SECTION 12/94-----
    1      cup           Flour
      1/4  teaspoon      Salt
      1/2  teaspoon      Baking soda
    1                    Egg
    2      tablespoons   Butter -- melted & cooled
    1      cup           Buttermilk
                         -----MEXICAN POPCAKES-----
                         Replace 1 cup flour with:
      3/4  cup           Flour -- plus
    1      tablespoon    Flour
    3      tablespoons   Masa harina
                         Same as popcakes -- see dirs.
 POPCAKES - In mixing bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda. In small bowl, b
 egg until well mixed, Add cooled butter to egg and stir again. Pour egg mixture
 and buttermilk into flour mixture. Stir briskly until well mixed.
 Fill 6 greased muffin cups half full. Bake at 425 degrees about 12 to 15 minute
 until popcakes brown on top. Remove from oven. Serve immediately.
 MEXICAN POPCAKES - Replace flour with mixture of 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon flou
 and 3 tablespoons masa harina. Proceed with recipe.
 PANCAKES - Follow Popcakes recipe, except barely stir ingredients together. Bat
 should look wet and shiny, like bowl of thick-curd cottage cheese. Don't worry
 about streaks of flour and lumps. Heat skillet and melt just enough oil or
 shortening to cover bottom. Drop batter by heaping tablespoon into skillet and
 gently pat each mound of batter down; don't flatten clumps of batter. Turn as s
 as edges of pancake look dry; don't wait for bubbles to break over top before

 “If you are like me, you probably cook your favorite dishes again and again. It
 easy to get into a rut. But the other day, quite by accident, I had a breakthro
 when I was making one of my old favorites - pancakes.
 ”This basic pancake recipe is made with the plainest ingredients yet always
 produces the tenderest little puffy pancakes you can imagine. On a whim, I deci
 I would make another batch and try baking them in muffin cups. . .just to see w
 would happen.
 Amazingly, they turned out wonderful - high, moist, golden little domes, a cros
 between popovers and pancakes. My daughter calls them 'popcakes'.
 "Curious, I went a step further and tried a variation with the popcakes, replac
 several tablespoons of flour with an equal amount of masa harina.
