This is the best pancake recipe. I always get lots of compliments when I make this. Before finding this recipe, pancakes where just average, now they are a new level of delicious. The texture isn’t amazing. I also enjoy the intro story about finding it in your grandmother’s collection with weathered corners. Thank you for sharing this publicly!
