Flapjacks with Charlie

Last Saturday morning, Charlie and I found ourselves alone for breakfast. Peyton was asleep and Nate was out getting us our new picnic table. So, as a special treat (just as much for me as her!) I decided to make flapjacks with her.


The recipe is out of an old family cookbook and was submitted by my great-grandma. I have no idea how far back it goes, but I like the idea of eating something that my grandma had as a little girl. Plus, my brother and I thought these were the greatest when we were growing up. We'd make stacks and stacks of these things! (I do know for a fact that he still does. . .)

The recipe is REALLY simple:

1 cup flour
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
milk to make the batter thin


mix all ingredients and pour just enough to thinly cover the bottom of a hot skillet.


once the edges start to turn brown, flip and finish cooking on other side.


stack all the flapjacks on a plate, cut into fourths, roll and serve dipped in sugar.


I haven't had these in forever! I'm so glad I made them with Charlie. I think she liked dipping the yummy little rolls and enjoyed "helping" make her breakfast.



  1. Mmmm....I still make flapjacks all the time! Derek thinks its dumb that we call it that. He has some fancy German Mennonite name but they'll always be flapjacks to me! Dad never liked them so it was always such a treat growing up because we got them whenever he went out of town. Love getting to see your life from so far away! Lindsey
