From my Kitchen: Mrs. Wilkes’ Homemade Pancakes
I reached into my pantry to pull out my box of whatever brand pancake mix I had stashed in the back. To my surprise I was out. I don’t normally make pancakes, say, less than once a month. However, today I really wanted some delicious fluffy morning food.
I turned to my ever so loved Mrs. Wilkes’ Boarding House Cookbook circa 1990. I knew there would be a delicious recipe waiting. I was happy to learn that I had all the ingredients needed and this was going to be a simple task.
They turned out delicious, everything I could have wanted. I did add a little splash of vanilla, but it would be equally wonderful with fruit, chocolate chips or anything else you might want to toss in, bacon? You won’t find me doing that. Over all great simple recipe to start your day off right!
