Text Box:

Grandma would write down a recipe on whatever paper she could find, and slip it into the pages of her cookbook. This illustration is a recipe written on a “time card” from the leather-working shop where Grandpa Block had been an apprentice.

Instructions:.

Mix all together; drop by large spoonfuls into skillet. Sauté in hot oil till undersides are brown; turn and fry other sides. Remove first batch onto warm plate. Keep these in a warm oven while frying the rest of the pancakes. Serve with applesauce—sour cream is a good garnish, too.
