Author Notes

This was one of the first recipes I was able to make on my own as a kid. It was also one of the few desserts we could always make, as my mom always had these ingredients on hand. Plus, it doesn't include eggs so you can snack on as much batter as you like (well, so long as enough goes in the pan). —Gibson2011
