    I’m planning to attempt a day of American comfort foods on the 4th of July, which would involve pancakes & bacon for breakfast and hamburgers & hot dogs for lunch. The hamburgers and hot dogs don’t seem too difficult to do here, but I usually make pancakes from scratch and I use baking powder. I think I found it at the grocery store – “fermento em pì≥ quì≠mico”, but I want to make sure I’m getting the right stuff. I found it next to “fermento em pì≥ organico”, which I’m pretty sure is yeast. Any bakers/cooks out there that can let me know if I’m on the right track?
    Thanks all!

    Yes, Fermento em po. Fermento em po organico is live yeast for making bread. You can also buy farina com fermento which is a self-raising flour that already has the raising agent added.

    If you want your pancakes super fluffy try separating the whites from the yolks and, after mixing all the other ingredients, you can whist the just the egg whites until it forms stiff peaks and then fold this into the batter.

    Something tells me MoL cooks breakfast on the weekends, or at least on Sundays.
    Thanks for that tip about the egg whites!
