READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Fairy Godmother

This is an old recipe from my Mom's magic baking powder book. This is a brunch favorite at our house, my son has even learned how to make these so he can freeze them for quick breakfasts. Pop into the microwave or toaster.

Fantastic pancakes! Used 1/4 cup Smart Balance instead of butter - worked fine! Added about 2/3 cup freeze dried blueberries & let sit 20 minutes before doling out 1/2 cup sized pancakes on the griddle. High rising, crispy edged wonderful! Served with peppered bacon & Grade B amber maple syrup - just the best Olympics watching brunch. TY fairy Godmother - our go-to recipe for pancakes now.
