My great-grandmother made this recipe in the 1930s. When my mom and grandmother were cooking up the pancakes, we kids all wanted to flip them over. They're different yet appealing and can be served with sausage or bacon.—Elizabeth Higgins, Corinth, Maine

"This is the same as my Dad's recipe that he got from his Mom. My favorites! I like to fry these in hot bacon grease so that they are crispy on the outside and only put butter on them . They are delicious!"
