This is a fourth generation family-favorite recipe for delicious yet simple pancakes that my husband's great grandpa Mackinaw Johnson used to make for the hired hands on his homestead in Montana. Guests from all over the world now enjoy it daily at our dude ranch.

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook in batches until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

6.4.20 Mixed up exactly as written, and it was REALLY runny. Did a test pancake, it had no rise at all, so I added more flour and a little more baking powder. Texture was not at all what I’m used to with pancakes, they tasted OK, but doubtful I’ll make again. Read More

This recipe is extremely runny. I had to add much flour and baking powder to try to salvage it. I added vanilla extract, which helped with flavor. These turned out more like crepes, so my husband put apple butter on them, which was quite tasty. Don't expect fluffy pancakes, however. Read More
