You Asked For It: pancakes

Would anyone have a recipe for homemade pancakes? Thank you.

Vanessa Lattin, Tarpon Springs

Lynn Webb of Dade City shares a pancake recipe she has been making for the last 40 years. It's a family favorite and is sure to become a favorite of many readers. This recipe is so easy to make, and it's economical, too. If you premixed the dry ingredients and kept it in an airtight container you'd have an easy breakfast (or dinner) in just a few minutes. The pancakes bake up fluffy and delicious. They also withstand additions such as blueberries and chocolate chips, two of my family's favorites.

Recipe request

Caroline Kilbourne of Clearwater bought a lemon bread from the Black Cat in Belleair Bluffs for years. She has not found it anywhere else and hopes someone has the recipe.
