Grandma called pancakes flannel cakes because on cold mornings they kept her family warm as flannel.

Branded Pancakes

Real Western with your own brand right on the pancake.

Make Pancakes as directed on Bisquick package.

Let batter trickle from teaspoon onto hot griddle to form an initial. Initials must be made backwards to be right when pancakes are served. Draw your initial backwards on a piece of paper for a pattern before you start.

When bottom side of initial has lightly browned, pour a regular spoonful of batter over initial.

Bake until bubbles appear, then turn and finish baking as directed on package.

Serve hot with butter and warm syrup or jelly. There is a color photograph of Branded Pancakes on page 80.

This is how some letters look backward.
