My grandmother always made her pancakes from scratch, and I am spoiled on them! Luckily, they're easy to make (every bit as easy as pancake mix as far as I'm concerned).
4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
You just mix it all together and cook them just like you would from a mix. I've never measured the milk out, I just eyeball it.
My grandmother also always made her syrup from scratch. If you like the thick syrup you generally buy, this syrup is not for you, but I like this because it's thinner, and it absorbs into the pancakes really well
Homemade Pancake Syrup
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Water
1 tsp imitation maple flavoring
Put water and sugar into a pot and heat it, just barely bring to a boil, and immediatley remove from heat. Add maple flavoring. It's that simple
If you have any pot roast leftovers (we never do around here) Here's a really great soup to make it last for another meal
Leftover pot roast, chopped
1 medium to large Onion, chopped
4 or 5 potatoes, cubed
1-2 jalapenos (optional)
Just throw it all together, cover with water, and cook for about 3-4 hours (the longer you cook it the better it is, I swear!)
