My Grandma had to drop out of school in the eighth grade to cook for the farm hands on her father's farm. She was taught old school style and the lady could throw down! These pancakes are one of her special recipes! Enjoy

I have followed this recipe many times. These are the best pancakes I've ever had, hands down.
