With all of the pancake recipes I have on this blog, I was shocked to find out that I didn't have this, my basic recipe, on here somewhere. In fact, I think I remember posting it when I started in 2008, but for some reason, it is gone. Perhaps the photos were terrible (which most pre-2011 are). However, this is a recipe that you must have. I have never met a breakfast eater that didn't love them.These babies are light, but chewy, just like IHOP or Denny's makes their pancakes. When my sons were little, we'd often take them to "kids eat free" night. Two kids free per adult made our little outings rather cheap. Then those stinkin' kids grew up, got old and started eating like ravenous wolves. Now we tend to take them to "all you can eat" places instead; and only when we are feeling rich.I make these pancakes all of the time. I usually have to double the recipe to feed the gang. The nice thing about this recipe is that you cannot over beat it. Unlike most quick bread type dishes that warn you to only stir until combined, this recipe needs abuse. Stir, have your kids stir, then stir some more. You want it as smooth as possible.
