  1. First time for me to make pancakes from scratch.....I have always taken the "Aunt Jemima" route when making pancakes. These pancakes were very good. The only place I deviated from the recipe was in the 1/2 cup brown sugar in the batter. I just thought it would be too sweet for me with the syrup and all. I used only 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and it was enough for me.


I am a?36 year old aussie girl,I live in a quiet country town, which is only an hour from the City of Adelaide which is the capital of SA. I love it here, I have almost 2 acres of land, so theres plenty of room to move around. I would LOVE to?have my own vegetable garden, but I do not have a green thumb. And am quite unlucky in the growing plants department.?I have 2 young sons aged 14(Jacob) and 10(Phoenix) who are the worlds pickiest eaters, and I'm always on the look out for new and yummy ways to get them to eat good nutritious food. (veggies especially) It is quite a challenge seeing as dad is almost as picky as the kids!!! But he is learning not to be afraid of trying new things. I love baking, pies and cakes mostly, and i have a weakness for roast meats and potatoes, all the good warming comfort food!
