This recipe is from the North Dakota Federation of Business & Professional Women's Clubs cookbook from the 50's. My mom was a member. I asked my mom for her pancake recipe for years, and after giving me several recipes that weren't as good, she gave me the cookbook.

Perfect high rising fluffy pancakes with crispy edges - used for the thumbnail-sized blueberries we picked yesterday! Will be our new "Go-To" pancake recipe from here on. Thanks for posting this total keeper!

These are excellant pancakes, they were quick and easy to make. I made them in some large molds that I have, a large heart and a large flower. They turned out perfect, for Valentines Day. These beauts were big, thick, tender, light and fluffy. With a great buttermilk flavor. I served them with strawberries and strawberry syrup and whipped cream...sooo good, I will most definitely use this recipe again.
