My Great Grandmother Sullivan made these for my grandfather Frank "Barney" Sullivan who asked his mother for the recipe to give to his bride Mabel Kennedy Sullivan. Mabel made sure to give the recipe to my mother Patricia Sullivan, and my mother gave the recipe to me... These hearty pancakes will make you smile.... Coming from a big family, we ate a lot of pancakes, for any meal of the day, and this one is a family favorite! My grandchildren love them... we all do! You can also make them smaller.... have fun and enjoy! Play With Your Food! ox
