These pancakes were served for a fund-raiser at our church many years ago. We fed about 140 people and had a lot of fun. The buttermilk syrup is a nice change from maple syrup.

"I COPIED this recipe exactly the way Grandma has written it in her worn cookbook. The only difference today is that I can't get home-smoked ham like those Grandpa used to cure in his old-fashioned smokehouse. But that never matters to hungry folks at the table—Grandma's recipe is a winner every time!"

I found this recipe a few years ago and tried to make it with it with a few changes. I'm diabetic, and this fits into my low-carb and low-fat diet. Every time I serve a brunch, the frittatas are the first thing to disappear, and nobody knows they are low fat! —Susan Watt, Basking Ridge, New Jersey

Even as a young girl, I was always going through recipe books in search of something new to make. That's how I came across these brownies, a favorite for our family reunions and other get-togethers.

This favorite old recipe means a lot to me, since it was given to me by a good friend. That friend, in turn, received it from her great-grandmother. I'm always looking for ways to use zucchini (I even add it to my spaghetti sauce), so this was a welcome addition to my recipe file.
