"This secret family pancake recipe was passed down from my grandfather. He fed a family of 7 (including 4 growing boys!) on these pancakes, and refused to give anyone the recipe until he finally relinquished it to my mother (his daughter-in-law) before he passed away. It is a long-standing family favorite!"

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; make a 'well' in the center of the flour mixture. Pour milk, eggs, and 1 tablespoon oil into the well. Mix until well moistened.
  2. Place a griddle over medium-high heat; sprinkle a few drops of water onto the griddle. If the droplets bounce, the griddle is ready; add 2 teaspoons oil.
  3. Spoon batter onto the griddle; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

The first time I made this recipe, the batter was way too wet and the pancakes were too sweet. Second time I made it, I cut the milk by a scant quarter cup and I cut the sugar back by half. Good...

I am not satisfied with this recipe at all! What a letdown. And that is an actual understatement. The pancakes had an aftertaste, this kind of tangy, sour-y kind of taste, I assume that was the ...

First off, I hate pancakes! I only make them because my kids love them. I think they're syrup sponges that are a crime to the culinary world. My hubby made this recipe a couple weeks back and I ...

This recipe is by far the best recipe I have ever tried. Usually my pancakes are too bland, or too heavy, but these pancakes are just right! Amazing!

Grandpa and his family must have had a sweet tooth! At 4 times the amount of sugar as my usual pancake recipe, these pancakes were way too sweet for my taste. I loved that this recipe cut the s...

Perfect!!

I absolutely love these pancakes and have made them tons of times since I found this recipe. I always double it to feed myself and two boys. So we can snack on the leftovers throughout the day:)...
