Hi, it's John! These pancakes are not fancy. What they are is perfect. Fluffy, sweet, comforting, and so simple to make.
True, Chrissy actually already gave you some fancy restaurant brunch–worthy blueberry pancakes with “cream cheese bombs” in Cravings 2. Those go great with your mimosas and your beautiful, bougie friends. Mine is the recipe for family when they just want amazing pancakes and they’re in pajamas and bathrobes. This recipe is what I make for our kids for our weekly tradition, “Pancake Sunday,” at 7 a.m. Note that the recipe can be doubled.
A couple of quick notes: First, DON’T OVERSTIR! Leave your batter thick and a little lumpy; that’s how it comes out so fluffy. Also, pick your syrup according to your own taste. Chrissy does NOT like fancy maple syrups. She prefers the one named after the Aunt who shall no longer be named. Choose wisely and enjoy!
