“My hubby is a mincemeat fan, so when I was looking through my "Better Homes and Gardens" cookbook and I came across a recipe for mince pancakes that looked good, I decided to give it a try, with a few changes that were more to my liking. The pancakes are wonderful, the recipe is easy to prepare, and the mincemeat does not come across as a strong flavor. Even those who aren't mincemeat fans can enjoy these very different pancakes.”
12 pancakes
