If there was ever a way to kick off the weekend, it’s with these pancakes. These are honestly just so delicious. Light, fluffy, not sweet, but perfect for sweet and savory breakfast lovers. Oh, and if I’m being honest, topping these pancakes with some maple syrup is a serious a must. Even if you prefer something savory!

And, you know, Friday’s just need pancakes, don’t you think? We think so, too! Which is why we are sharing these. Well, that and when we were trying to figure out what to bake up for today’s post, we realized we hadn’t posted one of our most-loved and most used recipes…

I’m being honest, too! This is an adaptation of a recipe from my great grandparents best friend. It’s one of the first things I ever learned to make and it’s one of the best pancakes you’ll ever have!

When I was younger, my mom would always make these whenever we had a lazy morning, whenever company was coming, or whenever we wanted some pancakes for dinner.

As I got a little older, she would let me help. It didn’t take long before I took over and started making them all on my own. They’re so simple and only require one bowl to mix everything in…which means even less mess!

It would always make everyone smile. Honestly, how can you have a bad day when you have a large stack of pancake?

And, now that we’ve updated and adapted the recipe, they are even more delicious than they were when I was little! They’re perfectly crisp on the outside, but soft, light, fluffy, and airy inside. Exactly how a traditional pancake should be.
