Best Pancakes Ever! Recipe Included...

Wilbur, Bearie Blvd. Bears ® oil painting by artist Trae Mundt. White teddy bear wearing turquoise vest and red bow tie, his Sunday best, dining at cozy pancake house getting ready to eat a big stack of pancakes topped with butter with a side of bacon and a glass of milk.

I'm a big pancake fan! I love to cook them, and I love to eat them. One day when I was flipping channels I came across a Hallmark movie that caught my attention. We learned that the lead character absolutely loved pancakes. I sat there and a smile crossed my face. That moment inspired me to paint my dear Wilbur, my pancake loving bear.

Wilbur and I have a lot in common. We tend to order very large stacks of pancakes. We insist on real butter, and we like to complement our pancakes with bacon. I wanted Wilbur to be dining at a cozy pancake restaurant wearing his Sunday best. This bear touches my heart. I hope he touches yours too.

I have to share my favorite pancake recipe. It's from my 1986 Betty Crocker Cookbook. It's delicious and easy to make. Enjoy!!


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening melted, or vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Beat egg with hand beater until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. For thinner pancakes stir in additional 1/4 cup milk. Grease heated griddle if necessary. (To test griddle, sprinkle with few drops of water. If bubbles skitter around, heat is just right.)

For each pancake, pour about 3 tablespoons of batter from tip of large spoon or from pitcher onto hot griddle. Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other side until golden brown. Nine 4 inch pancakes; 100 calories per pancake.
