“I grew tried of boxed pancake mixes so I went on a search for a pancake recipe that was easy to make, had a lot of flavor, light and fluffy. I had to of tried hundreds of recipes was about to give up until I found a recipe by Eugene Presley, of Council, Virginia. I had to tweak it a little to suit my family's taste. I have made this recipe with cinnamon, gingerbread spices, and with fruit in them but my husband and kids prefer them plain with maple syrup. I have even made new recipes thinking that there still is a better recipe but my family always say where is our pancakes. I HOPE YOU ENJOY !!!!!”
