    Thanks Sean266,
    These are uber easy to make. The only downside after having these is the ones at IHOP and other restaurants taste flat with a rubbery texture.

    Thanks rons23,

    I have to agree on the eggs. Crispy yet over easy. I'm a fan of pepper too.

    I like having leftover pancakes as snacks too. Try the recipe sometime. She used a wisk vs blender and left it lumpy looking...like it's not stirred up enough. She didn't stir the ingredients a lot. I think that's part of how her great pancakes are made.

    I'll relay comments to the cook!

    My dad would throw his spatula and slam the pan down if he broke the yoke. Needless to say the apple didn't fall from the tree in that case. Not soon after I got married I went into a rage in the kitchen and my wife had this look on her face......Wtf did I just marry. Hahaha

    Growing up I saw my dad complain about moms cooking too. I saw where that lead to...dads cooking sucked! Mom's are shrewd!

    I'm always grateful if I have someone else do the cooking. Eating cheese and crackers gets old after awhile. Lol

    Erik,

    It's hard to flip eggs in a steel skillet without a spatula, even for me. They are heavy and their sides do not have a nice slope for flipping. Easier to flip eggs with a lightweight Teflon coated pan. We generally don't use Teflon though we do own one. What type of frying pan do you prefer?

    Our glass stove top looks good but does a poor job of regulating a constant temperature. Hence the cast iron. I wish our neighborhood had gas.

    I'm not much of a pancake eater anymore. For years. Probably because I've never had your wife's pancakes. Props to her.
    Eggs=PERFECT. Dang!!!! Maple Syrup is the only way to go. I love it on vanilla ice cream.

    Can't beat cast iron. Not easy to flip an omelet with a 5lb cast iron Lodge, although I'm sure there are some old Texas ranch "sourdough" camp cooks that can make it look easy.

    You are lucky to have gas. In the future I would not buy a house that didn't have gas too.

    While I'm stuck using only electric I did buy an induction hot plate from Bed bath and beyond and like it. It has some pluses over the electric cook top. I am still experimenting with it but it's quick to heat and easy to clean.

    Sundays at our house are as the kids say, "Pan-a-cake day".
    Best day of the week.

    I've shamelessly stolen your recipe to try.

    I refuse to use a pre made mix for pancakes. I typically make a double batch on the weekend and freeze the left overs so my daughter can have them during the week.

    Next time add some vanilla extract, it makes them so much better.

    Also coconut oil instead of regular oil changes it nicely.

    Yep. No pancakes here though. The "man skillet is bomb"

    Going back to the pancake topic, my wife found a great recipe too. Will have to find it for there's to try.

    Old fashion pancakes

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon white sugar
    1 1/4 cups milk
    1 egg
    3 tablespoons butter, melted

    In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until blended

    We add about a half a cup of water too because they are too thick per recipe above.
