Best Ever Pancakes

That is the actual name of this recipe written on my little yellow recipe card.  This recipe is, perhaps, perfection.  I refuse to eat Bisquick pancakes because of these pancakes. If you ever go out to brunch/breakfast with me at a restaurant, you will notice that I will never order normal pancakes. It’s because of this recipe.  I have been at friends houses in other states and called my mom for it.  My mom’s cookbook (I think it was a Pillsbury one, it was old when I was little) is missing pages in this area and the page with the base recipe is torn out and barely legible.

I have been helping make these pancakes for as long as I can remember.  I remember being so excited that there was a secret ingredient that my mom and grandma added, I thought no one else knew. On time when I was maybe 5ish, I accidentally added twice as much milk as necessary which resulted in the need to double the recipe, which, to me, was the most brilliant idea ever.  From that point on I “accidentally” added too much milk so that we would have to double the rest of the recipe.

Below is the recipe as I made it today( the full recipe).  Lately I have been adding wheat flour for half of the normal flour and I typically half it now, unless I am making it for several people.  This round I also added some raspberries since I was in the grocery store this morning.
