“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!”

Ingredients

Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  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.

With a recipe like this there is absolutely no reason to buy a box mix ever again. I am one of those oddballs that doesn't like syrup on my pancakes so the sugar in this recipe added just the right amount of sweetness. Don't overmix the batter. After flipping they really rise nice and tall so flip them gently and don't smash them down with the back of the spatula.

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 pancake recipe but not our family's favorite.
