Uncle Annie's Famous Pancakes

April 11, 2012

Author Notes: This recipe has been in our family for five generations. My great Grandmother loved them because they were not heavy "Flannel Cakes", but very light and fluffy. My father added the last tweak- 1/2 cup of beer. The adults fought for the rest of the bottle of beer. It usually ends up being consumed by the chef.Auntie M & M

In This Recipe


  1. Beat eggs. Add buttermilk, cottage cheese, sour cream and Bisquick and whisk. Do not over mix. Let stand ten minutes. Add beer.
  2. Preheat griddle or heavy skillet, until very hot enough to make drops of water scatter over surface. Brush with oil or butter. Working in batches, using a 1/4 cup measure filled halfway for each pancake, pour batter onto griddle, and cook pancakes until there are air bubbles and then flip. Cook until golden about 2 minutes per batch.
  3. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
