These tender and golden pancakes from Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas are a little thicker than traditional versions, so they make a substantial breakfast. Be sure to make plenty, because the leftovers can be used in the unique recipes that follow.

"Delicious!! These are some of the best pancakes I've made!! Wonderful flavor and texture...and I like the fact that the batter only rises for 30min. I did, however, add two tablespoons of sugar instead of 2 teaspoons, and they were just right. not too sweet. Would make them again!!"
