I found this recipe in a family cookbook, and it soon became my very favorite. I love the texture – so nice and moist. I tweaked this recipe to make enough to feed a hungry bunch of siblings… eight or so, I believe. 😉
Of course, these pancakes are best when slathered with butter and drizzled with your brother’s amazing maple syrup…
These would make a wonderful weekend or Father’s Day breakfast! A side of bacon or sausage is most definitely recommended. 🙂
My Favorite Pancakes
6 cups flour
7 1/2 tablespoons sugar
4 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
7 1/2 cups milk
5 egg yolks
3/4 cup melted butter
Stir until just moist. (batter will be lumpy.) Fold in:
5 beaten egg whites
Let sit for at least 5 minutes to thicken up a bit.
Fry on a nonstick griddle and serve warm with butter and syrup!
These pancakes can be kept in the refrigerator to be heated up for a quick breakfast. I’m sure you could freeze them, as well.
