"Pancakes are one of my husband's specialties," says Dorothy Pritchett of Wills Point, Texas. "So it's not unusual for him to wake me with those hot-from-the griddle cakes that get their delicious difference from peanut butter.
Although we live in a suburban area, we are lucky to have plenty of farms nearby where we can purchase fresh homegrown corn. When it's out of season, though, I do substitute canned or frozen corn in this favorite recipe.
If you're looking for a pretty dish to make when having guests for brunch, try this. Everyone I've served it to has enjoyed it...expect for one time, that is, when my husband tried to make it following my recipe, which I'd written down incorrectly! If you don't leave out the flour like I did, it'll turn out terrific!
I've used this recipe for more than 40 years. The pancakes are delicious with cheese sauce, creamed chipped beef or sausage gravy. Perhaps children who love pancakes but don't like vegetables would like these!
Years ago, my grandson requested a special dish to be included in his class cookbook, and this is the recipe I gave him. It was his favorite whenever he ate at our house, so he was delighted.
I often still serve it as a side dish - it's a good complement to any entree.

Ann Schenk (at Left) of Winnett, Montana, has used the recipe for Pancakes for One for years. Originally it served six. "As our kids grew up and left home, I scaled down the recipe," Ann says. "Now if my husband, Mike, or I have a taste for these pancakes, it's easy to make just a few."
Preparing traditional potato pancakes can be a time-consuming process...so you'll really relish this recipe. By using frozen hash browns, these "spudtacular" hot-off-the-griddle pancakes are ready in a hurry!
Hot-off-the-griddle goodies are always a welcome sight put on the table...morning, noon and night. Instead of serving these palate-pleasing pancakes with ordinary maple syrup, make this extraordinary cherry sauce. You'll be thanked mmm-many times over!
I FOUND this recipe among our old family favorites and adapted it to make a small amount. It's quick and easy to prepare, but we still consider it a special treat.
I make it for breakfast and to satisfy a sweet tooth. Topped with a fresh fruit sauce, it's a wonderful dessert!

Piping hot and puffy from the oven, this golden pancake made a pretty presentation for a skier's theme breakfast I hosted. Served with my homemade buttermilk syrup, it's an eye-opening treat. That easy syrup tastes great on waffles and French toast, too.
