Formulating Fabulous Flapjacksby Olivia Sparks

Hypothesis: Quick breads are a delicate dance of leavity, flavor, & appearance. Some leavener can give a nice taste to batter, but too much causes bitterness, & impedes browning. Still, the batter might not have enough acid to lift the entire quick bread sufficiently. I predict that flapjacks with 1/4 tsp. of baking soda will be fabulously flavorful, fluffy & light, & crisped to a golden-brown.
