“Chef Paul’s World Famous Pancakes” or Wee One’s New Favorite Pancakes

Disclaimer:  I don’t know Paul. He attended the same church my grandma did back in 1994, but that’s all I know.

In 2007, my grandma fell and broke her leg. Since she had to go live in a nursing home, we had to clear out of her house. That was a somber and tedious task. I ended up inheriting some of her cookbooks. One was from the church she was a member of. I put the cookbooks on the bench. I also inherited it from her. When I finally did pull the cookbook out, I was pleasantly surprised. On some of the pages were notes about the contributors to the cookbook. It was so nice to see her handwriting once again.

This summer, I again pursued the book and found this recipe for pancakes. I made them for Imaginative One’s 12th birthday. (When did he get so old??)  They loved the pancakes.

Wee One ate 8 of the pancakes when I made the recipe again. I think he approved of the recipe. He also told me how good they were. Onto the delicious recipe:
