My late dad was a fabulous cook. My mouth waters when I think about his concoctions. He owned a pancake parlour and this is his pancake recipe that he used and that I memorized as a young girl. Fortunately it is dairy free so it works well for my dairy allergic son. My dad insisted that this recipe worked better if the batter aired for at least an hour prior to cooking. The batter can last in the fridge for up to 24 hours. I usually use 2 pans simultaneously to halve the cooking time, so the cooking time specified in this recipe is for the whole batch using 2 pans.
