Family Recipe with help?

Day 1 - First Blog .... ever!

Newly married as I am, got this recipe from off Granny's cabinet door which has been there for probably 50+ years.  It said "Mama's pancakes."  Meaning Mr. Harris' mother's recipe. Which could very well be over 100 yrs old.

It is as follows:
1 - egg ...I had one
1 - Cup buttermilk ...NOT ...used sour cream with water mixed in
2 - T oil ...canola? EVOO? Veg?
1 - Cup flour ...I used my unbleached
1 - T Sugar
1 - tsp baking power ...had some but pretty old!
1/2 - tsp baking soda ...only had some open in frig so didn't use.
1/2 - tsp salt ...used extra since didn't have soda.

Mix and you will enjoy some of the most delicious pancakes ever.  They turned out very light and had a very delicate taste.

  1. I make these all the time! I've found I like the taste when the oil is melted butter. Yum. I often triple or quadruple the recipe because swarms descend upon my house when I make them.
