I thought I used the ingredient list as written, with added cinnamon, vanilla, and a touch of nutmeg, but now after we have eaten them and my husband really enjoyed them, I realize I didnt add the vegetable oil. I also omitted the salt on purpose, not sure what it's role is, but I try not to use much salt when I cook. So I am not sure what the veg. oil does, but these were very good without it. Just the right amount of fluff for us. Sometimes pancakes get so fluffy that it is hard for them to cook. These were perfect. I used a 1/3 cup to measure out ingredients, so I used that to pour out the pancakes also and I got about 8 4inch pancakes. I was drawn to this recipe by the name. I enjoy reading the reviews but I also would enjoy to learn more about the origination of the recipe and why so named. Maybe Clark Gable accidentally added 2TBL of baking powder and decided to keep it? Anyways, thank you for sharing. DH really enjoyed them this morning.
