How To Make Grandma Caddell's Hot Cakes


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (or more if you like alot of vanilla)
  • 1 3/4 cups milk (more or less to make smooth consistency)


  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a med. size bowl.
  2. Then add enough milk and stir until smooth.
  3. Add eggs.
  4. Add vanilla.
  5. Stir again.
  6. If needed, add more milk. The batter should be a bit on the thin consistency side.
  7. Let these set for about 5 min, and they will thicken a little.
  8. Drop batter on either a ungreased griddle, or a non stick fry pan on medium heat.
  9. The first pancake is always the test to see if your pan is on the right heat.
  10. You can make these any size you want, but grapefruit size is the way grandma always made them.
  11. This recipe can also be halved. And, these freeze up great! I freeze them for my family for a quick
    breakfast, or after school snack.
