My children are grown up. They have graduated from college, and are building their careers. I couldn’t be more proud. When they were growing up I would make pancakes from scratch for them every Saturday morning. We called them Race Cakes given my passion for cars. I miss those Saturday mornings with the kids.
Here’s the easy-to-make recipe.
1 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp canola oil
2/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp sugar
Blend the egg, buttermilk, and oil together until smooth. Beat in the flour, baking soda and sugar. Heat a griddle to 350 degrees, pour and cook your cakes. My daughter loved semi-sweet chocolate chips cooked in to her cakes. I like crisp bacon chips in mine. Serve with real maple syrup and fruit on the side. Makes 8 large pancakes. Double the recipe if you have lots of kids or you’re really hungry. Enjoy!
Let the race begin.
