Passover Pancakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Susiecat too

This recipe comes from a 1972 cookbook by a Jewish women's organization (ORT) that was published as a fundraiser for a vocational training program. It is like a church or synagogue congregational cookbook, only bigger, because recipes were submitted from an 8-state region. (I added my own suggestions in parentheses.)

These were really good, and filling as a breakfast. I used orange juice and the canola oil and it worked very well with the recipe. Very nice.
