Because its so easy to purchase a box of pancake mix from the store most women have probably forgotten how easy it is to make “do it yourself” pancake mix. We’re so grateful for Learning to Love and Live an Old Fashioned Life for reminding us that it only takes 3 simple ingredients for good ol’ fashion pancakes. Just like the ones our mom use to make.


There’s no reason to buy a mix again. Here’s the recipe for 3 ingredient old fashion pancakes.


2 cups self-rising flour

2 eggs

1 ½ cup milk


Mix all ingredients together. You are looking for a medium consistency, not too runny but not too thick. You might need to add more flour or more milk in order to achieve this.Grease and heat pan to medium heat and cook until bubble start forming and the shine of the batter disappears, then flip. The second side will cook much faster. Check for doneness according to color of underside.Serve with butter and syrup.
