It's not possible for me to love these Griddle Cakes more. It's the combination of this ridiculously rich and sweet butter sauce poured over these light and fluffy - yet substantial pancakes that just makes me drool. They're insanely good.
This is another recipe of my mothers that I grew up with, and writing this right now I can smell the sauce and I'm salivating. If you've had these before, let me know your thoughts in the comments. If you haven't, try them and tell me that they're not the best things ever. 😉
