I'm craving pancakes!

I have very fond memories of my mom making me Mickey Mouse pancakes on Saturday mornings as a child, and still love to go home and enjoy those pancakes! Saturday morning pancakes have also become a sort of tradition in our Lee household and I hope to continue that with our child!

Mom's Pancake Recipe

1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 heaping tbsp. sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg

Combine all dry ingredients (I like to stir them all together with a fork or whisk.) Separate the egg, adding the yolk to the dry mixture and putting the white in a separate small bowl. Stir the milk into the dry mixture until well combined. Beat the egg white until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg white into your batter (you want this to be fluffy, but not lumpy.) Pour the batter onto your griddle or skillet and flip the pancakes when they are all bubbly. Enjoy!!! :)

Love, Clair


  1. I think your mom made me Mickey Mouse pancakes years ago when I came to visit in Arkansas...ah memories...when you and Jon were just a-courtin'

  2. Thank you for the recipe! I'm thinking this recipe would be great with a little pumpkin spice?! Heck, wonder if you could throw in some pumpkin puree? I think I'm craving pumpkins.

  3. My mom always made little bear pancakes. She was like Michaelangelo with pancake batter.
