My Mother's Homemade Pancake Recipe

Lisa Jane has been cooking for many years. She loves trying out new recipes as well as cooking old family favorites.


I love to cook and bake, and I especially enjoy going through my mother's recipes and seeing which ones I want to try. But while I love trying out my mother's recipes, they almost never end up tasting the same.

This recipe is no different; I have tried it many times, but it never tastes like hers. That said, though it might not taste the same, it's very good.


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup shortening, melted
  • 2 cups water


  1. In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Add 2 eggs, beat.
  3. Stir, then add the shortening and stir again.
  4. Add water and stir the batter until everything is mixed together.
  5. After you are done with the batter, then take a spoon and pour it into a greased, heated frying pan.
  6. Flip the pancake over after it bubbles. When it is done, place on a plate and enjoy.
