This has been in the family for a while, don't know were it came from, was just passed around and around for 50yrs or i have tried a lot of other recipes but this one is still the best . you get thick cake pancakes and they rise very well we measured once and they were up to 3/4 in thick. This is a very plain recipe sometime i omit the vanilla and/or add fruit and or nuts.. If the batter is a little thicker than you like it , just add more milk, just be careful not to add to much ad they will not rise as much and be more like a flapjack(thin and chewy).

These pancakes had a great taste. They were too thick so I added more milk. Thanks Ravenn :) Made for PAC Spring 2013

Wow - you were not kidding about this being a fantastic pancake recipe! Mine rose up so thick but were still so light and rich. I used the optional vanilla but didn't add any fruit or nuts to the pancake; I did mix some chopped strawberries with some maple syrup and used that for the topping. My new favorite pancake recipe - thanks for sharing it! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013
