As a general rule, I prepare breakfast for my family using an old pancake recipe that my grandma taught me years ago. I mix together the ingredients including flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In the meantime, I heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat on the stove. I pour some batter in the hot pan, cook it on one side until golden brown, and then cook the other side the same way. At the dining room table, the family often spreads butter on the pancakes and pours syrup on them. I also cook up some scrambled eggs and bacon to go with the pancakes, and throw some bread in the toaster. Finally, I mix up some cold orange juice to go with the entire meal.
