Old Fashioned Pancakes with potatoes
My husband enjoys a big breakfast on the weekends while I can eat a piece of toast and be just fine with it.  So for a special treat, this Saturday I decided to make him homemade pancakes.  I couldn’t find my original recipe so I just pulled one off the Internet.
The recipe was fairly easy and it came together in a matter of minutes.   While the first pancake came out of the pan and didn’t look so great the rest of them were light and fluffy.  We put butter and syrup on top and enjoyed them for breakfast.
Old Fashioned Pancakes with fruit
I’ve now been using this recipe for 4 years and often make these when we have breakfast for dinner.   These pancakes are also great because you can add fruit to them and they hold it without becoming soggy.
