Butter Rich Pancakes

Butter Rich Pancakes


DSCN7514These Butter Rich Pancakes are a family favorite in our house! Packaged box mixes don’t even compare to their flavor.  Making these from scratch is effortless and you probably have everything you need in your pantry. If you don’t have time during the week to make these,  make them on the weekend and create a family memory. These are truly so easy to whip up and impress or just satisfy. My boys would often have their fill of these the morning  before a sporting event to carb them up or a school day with big tests. Either way, you have no excuse to not give these a try!  Your family will love you more for it!

Combine the dry ingredients. I prefer to use Sugar in the Raw(unrefined), but granulated sugar could be used as well.
