Colleen's notes for this recipe:
This is an old recipe that has stood the tests of time....
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Beat eggs on high for a minute, add all liquids and all remaining ingredients. Mix for one minute.
Prepare griddle or skillet with oil and heat over medium. Ladle or pour batter on griddle to desired size. Cook until bubbles appear and the flapjacks are golden brown on the bottom. Flip the flapjacks over, cook until browned.
Serve with jam, jelly, syrup, honey, cooked apples or berries...... MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!

*** Add ginger to the batter along with more molasses and less milk.

*** Omit the molasses and add blueberries!

*** You can replace the milk with apple cider and add minced apples and cinnamon.

*** Add a well drained can of whole kernel corn (Southern style!)

Might just have to try this recipe...my daycare kids love molasses cookies and if I opt to do the more molasses and make a buttery/vanilla syrup...I think they'll be in heaven!!! Thank You for the post!

Sounds like you will be busy! It will be a great kids project! Have you ever made green eggs and ham with them? I use to read the book and then make the food with the kids.... they loved it!

Funny! They do love the book!!! And one time I did try to do the green eggs and ham...no one would eat it because it looked gross! lol

LOL! A few of the kids wouldn't try the eggs the first time... but they finally came around...lol

Colleen, are these good just eaten plain with no syrup or anything? They sound so good.
