Fat Tuesday!

Carolyn's Breakfast Pancakes

My cousin sent me her recipe for super-hearty pancakes - here's what she says:

"A friend of mine gave me the basic instructions for this pancake, but I have modified as we have had this breakfast EVERY SINGLE DAY for the past 2 years, excluding weekends. Saves time, $$ and fills you up until lunchtime. Previously (in my bagel and cream cheese days) I was starving by 10:30. No longer."

Sounds great - thanks Carolyn!
