My Family Pancakes

"This has been the pancake recipe for my family since I was able to eat them. I don't know where my mother got this recipe but it's the best I've ever had. They rise up nice and high. I sometimes add vanilla and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Very tasty!!"

  1. These pancakes are just amazing. I used to hate fluffy pancakes and preferred having them thin because I thought that they were just too dry. But these pancakes are just perfect. Deffinetly not dry. I do add a tsp of vannila extract and eat them with butter and pure maple syrup.
  2. Great pancakes! I added about a tsp of vanilla to them. They were delicious with nothing but butter on them. Thanks for this recipe!
  3. My family like these. They were great with butter and pure maple syrup.
  4. These were really good pancakes. I put some chocolate chips in some for the kids and they said they were the best chocolate chip pancakes I ever made. I enjoyed mine with just a little butter and some pure maple syrup...yummy! Thanks for posting.
  5. These are the kind of pancakes I dream of! The ones I want to be served when I eat out (but very rarely am)! Amazing that such a simple recipe can turn out so well. The search is off; I will use this recipe from now on! I did add about a tsp. of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon and think these would be great with finely chopped apples and/or cinnamon chips. Thank you, Zusie-Q, for a wonderful recipe!


  1. Delicious pancakes, Zusie-Q. The only substitution I made was to use melted butter instead of oil, and I needed to add maybe another 1/4 c of milk to get the right consistency. Lovely taste, nice and light and flavorful. Thanks!
  2. MMMMMmmmmm! The kids requested pancakes this morning and I was out of buttermilk to make our usual recipe so I tried this one instead. It was a hit with the kids and with me. Thanks for a great Saturday morning treat!


<a href=""target=new><img src="" border=0></a> I am a proud mother of three healthy boys aged 15,11 and 5. I'm originally from the tiny island of Bermuda and have been living in Edinburgh since July 2005. I've been collecting recipes since I was about 14 or 15 and been cooking and baking since then as well. I love all kinds of crafts also. In my spare time if I'm not in the kitchen; I crochet, make jewelry, bead, knit, sew, cross stitch, do plastic canvas and quilt. I have a short attention span, so I have plenty of different craft choices when I get bored of doing something. Oh, and I also like to read, listen to music, fiddle with any electronic gadget, collect dvd's and watch them, and I'm an internetaholic! :-) I keep a craft blog at and I sell my crocheted items and patterns at I keep pretty busy and being self employed gives me more time to explore cooking! :-) I'm mostly interested in cook books featuring regular old home cooking and favorites. When I moved to the UK I had to get rid of my cookbook collection. I did keep all my Bermudian cookbooks, charity cookbooks and 'The Foods of Israel Today' and Better Homes and Gardens 'Hometown Favorites'. <a href=""target=new><img src="" border=0></a> I am most passionate when it comes to my family and caring for them. Getting to feed them is an added bonus! Lucky for me, my boys are steadily growing pigs with bottomless pits for stomachs! lol :-) <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
