Now I legit hate it when you’re on pinterest, you click on a recipe, and you get the entire life story of the recipe. It’s like, just give me the darn recipe cuz I have dinner to make!!!
So bear with me if this is a little bit like those posts. It will be worth it…I think. 🙂
My mom was an old-school home-ec teacher. Like sewing machines in her class room and six stations worth of stoves home-ec teacher. And when she passed away unexpectedly 20 years ago, my dad passed onto me her recipes.
(I’ve recently decided to do that with my own three, you know, keep recipes written down all old school.)
This is the one tried and true recipe that I’m kinda known for in my house. My hubby is kinda pissed that I’m posting it for all of the world to see-at least those that find my corner of the internet.
Birthday? This was their breakfast. Kid had a bad day? This was our dinner. Good report card? Yup. Made this.
So one night a few years ago, I shared a pic of my oldest making this recipe on the good ol’ facebook And you know what? One of my teaching colleagues was commented, hey, can you post a pic of the recipe?
So I did. And guess what. IT WAS HER RECIPE. From the 70s! If you look in the upper right hand corner of the featured pic, that’s her name. She had had my mom as a home-ec teacher back in the late 70s. Seriously got chills.
Even though she’s been gone for over two decades now, her legacy lives on.
Thanks for bearing with me on this story.
Here’s the recipe.
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 1/3 c. melted butter
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 1 TBS sugar
- Mix all together. Pour in heated griddle over medium heat. Flip after bubbles have formed.
- You know…make them like you’d make pancakes…
Super easy and super yummy. If you wanted to make them a bit healthier, substitute white flour for whole wheat. It’s also fun to put food coloring in the batter or to cut them into shapes!
Do you have a favorite pancake recipe???
