Start the Day with Uncle Siggy’s Pancakes

August 21, 2010 No comments

This pancake recipe was developed by my brother, Siggy, during his tour of duty as a cook in the Navy in the 1960’s. They are still the best I have ever had and the recipe has been passed around to friends and relatives for decades. I made these for Kristina this week on the first day on her new job. I had buttermilk in the house so used that instead of regular milk. Fabulous!

Uncle Siggy’s Pancakes

2 cups sifted all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
4 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups milk
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter

Sift dry ingredients into large bowl. Melt butter in microwave in medium bowl. Beat eggs into butter
and add milk. Gradually stir liquid into dry ingredients until blended. A few small lumps are ok.

Using a large spoon (like an ice cream spoon), place spoonfuls on griddle heated to 350°. When bubbles
form on top, turn pancake and continue cooking until browned.

Serve with syrup, butter or berries as desired.

If making for a smaller group, you can refrigerate leftover batter for fresh pancakes later!

    Ok, these are sooo good! When I make them I make sure to set the eggs and milk out ahead of time so they are at room temp. It prevents he mixture from clumping when ingredients are combined.
    These pancakes are fabulous just plain or with toppings like, berries, syrup, and even peanut butter & syrup!

    We LOVE “Uncle Siggy’s” Pancakes. No need to ever purchase pancake mix with such a simple and yummy recipe. We like them best hot off the griddle – no toppings needed!
