Homemade Pancakes

Have you ever served up homemade pancakes?  I mean real, made-from-scratch pancakes.  There is nothing like them in my opinion…light, fluffy and delicious.

I am sharing  my grandmother’s recipe for pancakes, which has been used forever in our family.  To me nothing says morning like good old homemade pancakes. Many people think that the out-of-the-box pancakes are easier, but this recipe is as easy as it gets and you should have all the ingredients in your pantry.

One major trick to the perfect pancake that I have learned over the year is don’t over-mix the batter.  You want some lumps in the batter.  If you over-mix the batter you will have a pancake that isn’t as light and fluffy.

Pancakes by Grandma Pat
2 c. ap flour
1 tsp. salt
5 tsp. baking powder
3 T. sugar
2 eggs
2 C. milk
1/3 C. oil

Sift dry ingredients. Beat the eggs and milk well. Pour in shortening. Add the flour mixture all at once. Beat until smooth.

Keep a small amount of oil in the skillet, before pouring pancake mixture. This makes a lot of pancakes, you can freeze what you don’t use and have them for another day.

I also like to add things like fresh fruit or chocolate chips every once in awhile.
