I developed this pancake recipe when we were short of syrup... it has its own distinct sweetness that is great with or without syrup... I love it with some whip cream and strawberries. It is my most requested recipe. It's great because I constantly have slumber parties so I mix up the dry ingredients ahead of time... add the eggs and milk and voila... done quick! I like to weigh my ingredients...so put both measurements. Enjoy!
