Trivia time! Did you know that currently there are exactly 302,542 pancake recipes on the internet? And that doesn’t include the results for the search term “hotcakes.” Dayum girl (or boy)!
Ok fine, I haven’t a clue how many there are. But hey, trivia is overrated, guys! That stuff doesn’t matter! Because this is the only pancake recipe that you will need. Evah! I’ve had many a pancake in my lifetime, and this one’s the showstopper. The keeper.
You can add whatever you like to it to create some fun variation for your spunky self, but just as is with a bit of butter and maple syrup… goodness gracious. It’s perfect.
I adapted this recipe from my favorite red-haired lady next to Lucille Ball—Ree Drummond! She got it from her husband’s grandmother, Edna Mae. So, what makes these pancakes the ultimate pancakes? The title says it all. But actually, you can use plain yogurt and get the same delicious result. Sometimes I make these using sour cream, sometimes plain greek yogurt, and sometimes plain regular yogurt. All wonderfully fluffy and light. I love these pancakes, and they’re really so easy to make from scratch. I mean it. So easy. Just a few minutes and breakfast is on its way to your tummy. Or dinner! That is, if you’re like this wild and crazy one right here. Yeah? *Suave shotgun fingers, the obligatory mouth click sort of a thing, and a tic wink*
