Perfect Pancakes and Waffles

Mademoiselle calls and asks for this recipe regularly!  So, here it is for easy access and for us to share.  It was Mimi’s mother’s weekly go-to recipe to feed five hungry kids, each wanting either a pancake or a waffle.  The recipe works perfectly for both and makes a particularly spectacular blueberry pancake.  However, Mimi asks that you make her one important promise before you enjoy this recipe.  Only use real maple syrup!  That fake stuff does not do justice to the taste of the batter!hard-laugh
