    Amy - Ellie's Mommie's Note:

    This is the world's best pancake recipe. It comes from the "American Woman's Cookbook", circa 1938, revised 1970. I learned to make these because my mother's pancakes sank like lead in your stomach. These float like air! I like to serve these with jam instead of syrup.

      I think you should rename these Cloud Cakes because they're as light and fluffy as. Delicious! Never did use the 1 T oil in the ingredients list. Recipe doesn't say when it's used. I assumed it was for oiling the skillet, but I used cooking spray. Great pancakes.
