This is the way my Granny made pancakes. All the grandchildren had to have them when visiting. We sometimes have them for supper with good ole pan sausage!

These were excellent! I made them for my son and he loves them! One thing I did learn from a different recipe (that came to light while making these) is that letting the batter sit for about ten minutes while your pan heats up... its almost crucial when you have a soupier batter. I also did it a little different, I sifted all the dry stuff together and then i mixed all the wet stuff together in another bowl and poured that in while stirring. This caused a soupier mixture but after 10-15 minutes of cooking 1-3 pancakes at a time the batter started to thicken just from sitting out. And the pancakes were much fluffier after that (the first few came out almost flat). So now i have tweaked the recipe and these are perfect and delicious! I disagree with the only negative comment on the page, i tried one of these without any toppings and they were bland-ish. But when served with syrup as most people eat pancakes the flavor was delicious and you can taste the butter and flavor in the pancakes when accompanied by delicious syrup. These are GREAT! Thank you, from your famlies recipes to mine :D

I think I followed recipe to the letter but I don't understand all the great reviews. The only thing I did different was use lowfat milk and let the batter sit for 10 minutes. I couldn't finish them. They looked ok but the taste was a little bland. I prefer Aunt Jemina. They were just ok for me.

I made them a second time just to make sure I didn't to anything wrong. I stand by my review. Sorry.

Simple, straightforward recipe for great pancakes. No frills & no exotic ingredients. I did as one reviewer suggested and started out with just 1 C of milk. I ended up using about 1 1/4 C for the perfect batter. I really think sifting the dry ingredients together is the secret to this fantastic recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
