{ Grammy's Pancakes }

Sit down now, and let me tell you about my Grammy's pancakes.

They. Are. Delicious.

Fat and fluffy. Golden and crispy. Tender and yummy.


These are a definite Christmas Breakfast staple around here, and any other time of the year we feel like having them. ;)

Grammy, who is actually my hubs' grandmother, has been making these for him since he was tiny.
Possibly before, I'm not sure about that, I'd have to ask.

A few years ago Gram mentioned that the recipe that she had taped inside her cabinet door was getting hard to read. I wrote her a new one with her promise that I could have the old. It's written in her handwriting, and up in the corner, it says quite clearly that this recipe is for my husband's pancakes.

I now have it taped inside my cabinet door, but I have it inside plastic.

I don't have step-by-step photos of this because it was my supper.

I quite literally took photos seconds before eating these.

Quick photos, you know, so my pancakes didn't get cold!

Speaking of that, do you all have dinner or supper?

I have supper. My husband has dinner. Different names, yet eaten at the same time.
We've debated about this so much over the years that my hubs now simply refers to it as
"The Evening Meal".

There's nothing quite like Breakfast for Dinner Supper is there?

So, to make my Grammy's fluffy, tender, crispy edged pancakes, here's what you'll need:

Grammy's Homemade Pancakes

Oil for frying pan
Large frying pan 

1 Egg
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Cup Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Oil

Whisk together until smooth.

Pour a bit of oil into your pan and let heat. Drip a drop of the batter into the oil. When it begins to sizzle, add your pancakes.

When bubbles form on the cakes, carefully flip them over.

Test center by poking a small hole in it. If batter comes out, cook another minute or so.

Place on a paper towel just for a second to absorb any extra oil, then place on plate and serve!

This recipe makes about 6 medium sized pancakes.

For my family of 3, I made 2 recipes.

They are super delicious with your standard syrup, strawberries and whipped topping, or you can make your own syrup following my recipe here. This is perfect for when you want pancakes but forgot to buy syrup. All you need to do is keep a small bottle of Maple flavoring on hand (and sugar and water)!

I hope you'll love Grammy's pancakes as much as we do! Be sure to let me know!

They are great for Breakfast, of course... and also for  Dinner Supper!
