Adirondack Flapjacks from the 1950's

Our Flapjacks topped with banana slices & warm syrup.
We've been flipping through my mom's (Liz's grandma) old recipe card file. Flapjacks are such a great comfort food during the cold months of winter. We love eating breakfast for dinner once in a while and these sure make our bellies feel warm, cozy and full.

Everyone is so use to just buying a box of Bisquick© these days that we found it refreshing to find a real recipe for flapjacks handwritten on an index card from the 1950's.  It's easy to pre-measure the dry ingredients and keep them in a Ziplock© bag or Tupperware container until ready to use (and so much cheaper than buying pre-made pancake mix).

We've got more classic recipes to share with you soon. Don't forget to email us if you'd like to share some of your recipes with our readers. Happy Monday to you! ~ Marie
