We were supposed to be babysitting the three children of friends of ours, but I was left alone with the kids. Sunday morning breakfast I made these pancakes, and the kids loved 'em. Loved 'em so much that apparently their mother could never make pancakes quite like Steven did. She asked what I did and I told her that I just took an old Fannie Farmer recipe and fooled with it. Last time I was back in Montreal the parents mentioned how the youngest daughter (who had been 5 at the time I made them) now at University in England still considers them the best pancakes she'd ever tasted. Funny how something small you do can affect someone - even if you are not feeling particularly swell at the time.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:large;">This one is a staple in our home, and this year was the centerpiece of our own family Calgary Stampede breakfast. You'll have to Google that if you've never heard of it before. Yahoooo!</span></span>

You're a recipe machine, dude! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Walnuts are a good addition to pancakes with fruit.
