In honor of...

International Pancake Day, I wanted to share my Dad's pancake recipe. He has some kind of brilliant knack for making fluffy, delicious pancakes. My siblings and I were always excited to hear he was making them. Though my attempts don't come close to his, the recipe still turns out great.

Without further ado, here it is...

2 eggs
2 c. milk
1/3 c. oil
2 c. flour
5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar

Beat eggs; add milk & oil. Stir in flour and other dry ingredients. Beat until smooth (my dad says "forever"). Cook on a moderate-hot griddle or skillet. Serves 3-4. (For our family of 6, Dad doubled the recipe. If I'm serving eggs & sausage too, then I make half a batch for Heath & I.)

So, women - take a night off and make pancakes tonight! :)
