Rosa Parks featherlite pancake recipe

From time to time we publish recipes from famous people like LBJ, Boris Karloff, Robert Mitchum, and now Rosa Parks.

One of the members of the Scrumptious Chef cooking crew is a devotee of pancakes and would eat herself into the poorhouse but for a certain measure of sagacity.

We make pancakes perhaps once per annum. While a crispy edged hot cake covered in melting butter and good maple syrup makes a fine breakfast we normally skew to the savory side of things when it comes time to break the fast.

We vetted this recipe from our perspective of old school line cooks who’ve turned out thousands upon thousands of flapjacks over the years. We all did our fair share of time as breakfast cooks, and this formula hews close to many a classic. Except for the peanut butter. That’s where Ms Parks secrets her ace in the hole.
