Old-Fashioned Pancakes

These are pancakes just the way my mama use to make ‘em – with no baking powder whatsoever. That’s what I call old-fashioned pancakes. Did I mention that no pancake syrup is allowed?

My kids can’t seem to get enough of these tasty treats. I made them for breakfast one rainy morning and couldn’t help but get that warm, fuzzy feeling.

Measurements don’t have to be exact here, for a small batch you will need:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • ½ cup water

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add wet ingredients one at a time and mix well.
  3. Heat a frying pan on medium heat with about ½ cup vegetable oil.
  4. Scoop a large tablespoon full of pancake batter and drop in frying pan.
  5. Cook until each side is golden brown
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Enjoy with eggs and sausages, yum!!

In the frying pan :)
