GP’s Pancakes

“My father was a master pancake maker. As I chronicle in my first cookbook, Sunday mornings at our house were pancake mornings, with friends and family coming from far and wide to delight in his buttermilk-tinged silver dollars (the batter for which he made the night before, as he was convinced it deepened the flavor). Now, as a mother myself, the pancake tradition has held firm in our house, but I have modified the recipe so I can make it on the spot.” —GP
