    I've been looking for a pancake recipe. If you make smaller pancakes they go farther. You can also use whole wheat and olive oil instead of butter. - 9/24/09

    This is every grandma's recipe. haha
    shioned-pancakes/?scale=8&ismetric=0 - this does make for a great pancake though, I use the same recipe but for some reason, didn't see this in the similar results. It's pretty much perfect and no-fail.

    They taste even better whenyou add a pinch of nutmeg and a tsp or tbsp of cinnamon to the recipe, depending onhow much you like cinnamon. My sister adds a tbsp of pumpkin spice to hers and tops them with soft apples with a cinnamonsugar drizzle. :P
