Lately, I’ve been remembering his recipe – which I’ve never used, if I’m honest. Mixes and Bisquick took over long before I could cook. But scratch seems like the best option:
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 Cup milk
- 1/4 Cup self-rising flour.
That’s it. Don't over mix. He always fried it up in corn oil: makes the edges very crispy. If you're making another, there's enough for two pancakes there, really. But you can add another 1/4 cup each of the flour and milk and do well. This recipe also works well with self-rising cornmeal: try it with 1/4 of meal or 1/4 each flour and meal.
