Our family's favorite recipe - I converted it to whole wheat a few years ago, and no one noticed! I use organic milk and organic sugar and eggs; it makes a real difference.

Hubby and I both loved these!!! He'd never had whole wheat pancakes before, so was skeptical - I had had other recipes before and not liked them... too tough/hard. But these were perfectly perfect!! I halved the recipe for the two of us. Minor change: I did reduce the butter down to two tablespoons (for the halved recipe, so it would be four tablespoons for the full recipe). This was just b/c I wanted to reduce the fat just a bit. I didn't find them lacking w/ the reduction. I also added just a light shake of cinnamon and maybe a half teaspoon of vanilla - just to suit our tastes. And I let the batter sit out for about 20 minutes before cooking. Wonderful and perfect - this is the only pancake recipe I will ever need! Thank you for sharing your family's favorite - it's our family's favorite, now too!!!
