This is our all-time favorite recipe for pancakes! It’s simple and tastes so good.
Pancakes are one of America’s oldest - and favorite - types of quick bread. Both Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin are said to have served and enjoyed these griddle-cooked breakfast cakes.

If you like thin pancakes, use 1 1/2 cups milk.
Leftovers? Stack cooled pancakes between sheets of waxed paper. Wrap in aluminum foil and freeze. To reheat, unwrap pancakes and removed waxed paper. Heat on ungreased cookie sheet in 400 degrees F oven 5 to 7 minutes or until hot, or microwave uncovered on high until hot.
Treat your children to personalized pancakes. Fill a clean squeeze bottle with pancake batter, and spell out your children’s names by squeezing batter into the skillet in the shape of letters.
Don't flip 'em more than once! Repeated cooking on both sides toughens rather than browns the pancakes.
For uniformly shaped pancakes, pour the batter from an ice-cream scoop or 1/4-cup measure.
