Good Old Fashioned Pancakes Recipe


Old Fashioned Pancakes: A classic and simple recipe for fluffy, golden pancakes made with basic ingredients like flour, sugar, eggs, and milk.

This recipe came from my grandmother’s cookbook. This was a family favorite, judging by the aged appearance of the recipe card. I’m not a huge pancake guy but these are definitely some of the best pancakes I’ve had. I made them for my kids and they all gobbled them up like Homer Simpson at the donut shop. They’re so fluffy and light! Give them a try; you won’t regret it!
