“This has been in the family for a while, don't know were it came from, was just passed around and around for 50yrs or i have tried a lot of other recipes but this one is still the best . you get thick cake pancakes and they rise very well we measured once and they were up to 3/4 in thick. This is a very plain recipe sometime i omit the vanilla and/or add fruit and or nuts.. If the batter is a little thicker than you like it , just add more milk, just be careful not to add to much ad they will not rise as much and be more like a flapjack(thin and chewy).”
15-20 pancakes
