Light As air Pancakes and Porky-Scrambled Eggs

Usually, we don't really like pancakes because they are heavy and not particularly interesting in flavor. However, our friend, E., made these rather delicious, super-light, slightly tangy buttermilk pancakes that we devoured. Alexis also chefed up a scramble made from the leftover wonton meat.

Here's the pancake recipe:
This is from a NYTimes article about "Mississippi Pancakes" and uses milk. I've always found that milk-based pancakes are tougher than buttermilk-based. I think most people make their pancakes with milk simply because they don't usually have buttermilk on hand. However, buttermilk keeps very well. I buy a quart of low fat and use it in our weekly pancakes; I've never had it spoil.
