Gram's Famous Pancakes


Mmmmm.... these pancakes have been on Grandma Betty Ackermann's table every Sunday morning since Ian can remember. Topped with a big ol' slab of butter and a puddle of maple syrup, who could turn these away?

Heat your griddle to medium-high heat.

Mix these ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder

Add in these ingredients:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup crisco

Whisk everything together in one bowl. Add small, four inch wide pancakes on the lightly oiled griddle. When the sides of the pancakes get bubbly and the undersides are just beginning to brown, flip them! Tada! Enjoy with butter and maple syrup!
