Stacked Pancakes a la Farmer Boy
Rainy day. I ended up making pancakes and since we were out of maple syrup, I made brown sugar syrup by heating about a half cup of brown sugar with about a quarter cup water in the microwave for about 30 seconds at a time and stirring in some corn syrup.
It was only then that I realized I was making stacked pancakes just as Almanzo's mother had done in Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. A cheerful revelation that brightened my morning!
