My 4 year old son , Aubrey, loves to eat pancakes. I make them for him just about every morning--and would you believe I don't use a recipe. As a matter of fact, most things that I cook I make up as I go. It is an Italian thing. I know the right amount of liquids, fats and rising agents a pancake needs, but do I measure--never. Sometimes I add stuff like bananas, oats, cocoanut and pecans. It depends on my mood and what I have available on hand. What do you like to add to your pancakes? Don't forget "real maple syrup". We only use the real stuff around here and forget chemicals, I am an organic girl.
