Why wasn't I thinking?

Apparently I forgot to turn on my brain completely this morning. I came down to make our traditional Saturday morning blintzes and discovered that there wasn't enough milk to make the batter. I made an executive decision to make pancakes (supposed to be on Sunday) and do the blintzes tomorrow (I certainly wasn't going to go out shopping then). The pancakes seemed a little strange and they I recalled I hadn't added oil (not much needed) to the batter or put in baking powder! Amazingly enough they did rise a bit - perhaps aided by the fact that they were made with corn, rice, and soy flours and the liquid is fruit juice.

I bought milk this afternoon. The blintzes don't need baking powder; I hope I don't put some in.
