100 Year Old Pancakes

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by SueBelcher

This recipe was found along my GG Nelson's belongings. I'm posting this only because when I did a search for pancake recipes, I couldn't find anything that looked or seemed quite like this one. For variations, you can add 1 tbls. honey or 1 tbls. cinnamon and sugar mix or 1 tbls. cocoa powder and a handfull of chocolate chips. Cooking time is for individual pancakes, not a collective cook time.

No wonder this has lasted 100 years, light, fluffy and so good. I did add a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of vanilla just for that added flavor. I was a little concerned over how thin the batter was but they puffed up so nice and light, served with real maple syrup and was enjoyed by all. Thanks so much for sharing.
