Pancakes!!

One of my absolute favorite breakfast foods is pancakes. A nice steaming hot stack of homemade pancakes with butter melting off the top. Yum! This is a recipe that was passed down from my great grandma. It was one of the very first things I learned to cook. Here's the recipe.

Pancakes
2 Tablespoons lard (butter, margarine, or oil)
1 egg (well beaten)
1 1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 heaping teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar

Do not beat, just fold together. When cooking your pancakes be sure your griddle is hot, Use as small amount of oil as you can to grease it. Turn them when the tops are covered with little holes.

Variations that are tasty are adding cut-up banana and 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the batter just before frying. Substitute whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of white flour; or 1/2 cup rolled oats for 1/2 cup flour. On special occasions (like birthdays) we will sometimes sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the pancakes in the griddle. (Very, very delicious!!)

Cornmeal pancakes are good, too. you'd need to use a little more oil on the griddle than with normal pancakes.
Let's see. Pancakes with chocolate chips. Muffins with chocolate chips. I sense a chocolate frenzy coming on!
