This is a family recipe passed down for who knows how long. I got it from my Mom who got it from my Grandma (her Mother in law) who likely got it from her mother in law in turn. I grew up with these pancakes as a special treat every so often, and I plan on making it so with my kids!
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Warm your milk and cream just a bit (I added this step- I find warm milk makes the pancakes a little heavier-weird I know, but eh what can you do, don't fight what works :D ) Add room temperature eggs and whisk together. Sift the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then slowly add them to the liquid while whisking vigorously. This ensures less lumps.
Heat your pan. Once you pan is hot melt a little bit of butter and pour about 1/4 cup of the batter on it. Spread thinly and turn once bubbled. Repeat until you are out of batter.
Serve with whipped cream and maple syrup and a side of bacon. Or jam. Or butter and brown sugar. Or... Or.. Or.. The possibilities are endless really.
