About this recipe:This has been the pancake recipe for my family since I was able to eat them. I don't know where my mother got this recipe but it's the best I've ever had. They rise up nice and high. I sometimes add vanilla and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Very tasty!!

Mix all ingredients together in the order given. Thoroughly combine ingredients, while being careful not to overmix. It's ok if there are a few lumps. They won't rise as high and be as light if the batter is overmixed.
Let batter stand for about 5-10 mins. Generously oil a frying pan and heat to a med-high heat.
Ladle about 125 to 200ml of batter into the pan. (depends on size of pan) The pancakes should only take a few mins per side. Flip the pancakes when they start to bubble and dry out on top.
They should be golden brown on both sides. Serve warm with pancake syrup.
Other great additions are 1-2 mashed bananas for tasty Banana Pancakes, or a handful of blueberries and/or strawberries for fruit lovers. The possibilities are endless!
