Daniel’s Cajun Pancakes


“Ten year-old Daniel loves to help me cook! This is his own cakes from scratch recipe, perfect for weekends, or when Dad gets up real early to prepare the pancakes before the kids are off to school. Or better yet, wake up Grandma; she loves to do that!”


  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 package yeast or 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 large cooking spoon of olive oil
  • 4 1/2 cup milk or to desired consistency
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • Oil for cooking.


Step 1

Combine and mix dry ingredients.

Step 2

Add oil and milk.

Step 3

Mix well but do not over-beat. Cook in large pan or griddle.

MawMaw adds: To prevent tough or rubbery pancakes, add cooking spray or oil to the preheated pan; pour batter and heat until the dough's air bubbles create tiny caverns on the pancake's surface and the edge turns a golden brown. Turn once and remove as soon as the under-surface is brown. Depending on thickness and temperature of the griddle, pancakes should cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side.

Serve with favorite syrup. This recipe can be doubled for large families. If cooking for large families, remove pancakes to a warm cookie sheet or platter and cover with a lightly moist towel until all pancakes are cooked.
