So I have a confession to make…but I should start by saying that I have never, ever liked pancakes – EVER! Last month Chris decided to try his Mamaw Dunagan’s griddle cake recipe and I have made him make them literally every weekend since!! His pancakes have a slightly sweet flavor and an almost cake-like consistency. Chris very lightly butters each pancake and that’s it! As he says, the mark of a good pancake is one that doesn’t need syrup.
The recipe comes from the 1986 edition of The Wednesday Study Club Cook Book, a community group Chris’ grandmother was involved with in Monahans, Texas, where she lived for the majority of her 97 years of life. The ingredients are the exact same as the pancake recipe found in the Joy of Cooking, but the measurements are different. Chris shared his tips with me on how he makes such a darn good pancake so please follow the instructions word for word and you won’t go wrong. Dee-lish! (more…)
