Pancakes on Christmas morning was a pretty long standing tradition when we were kids. My brothers and I would make the pancakes, once we had opened all the presents. One year, when we were grown and living away from home, Stephen received a griddle as a Christmas present – the pancakes were sure good that year!

    I found this recipe some years ago here and use it all the time. It’s easy to make and has the box pancake mixes beat hands down. I actually think it is as good as the mix we used when I worked at Howard Johnson’s.
