Old Fashioned Pancakes (gf,v,sf)
If you and your kin are like mine, you know how sacred pancakes can be! Only a fluffy and tender and delicious-tasting pancake will do to fill the craving for this favourite comfort food. While this recipe is super simple to make, getting it just right took far too many renditions to count---but every bit of the time it took was worth the delicious result. No one needs to be disappointed anymore!!!
