I’ve been on the hunt for a pancake recipe for years. Hubby and I both agreed that tonight’s recipe was the best we’ve had so far. And I love this recipe because it doesn’t call for buttermilk which I rarely have in the fridge so we can whip up this recipe anytime we’ve got a hankering for some pancakes. It’d be great with blueberries or chocolate chips! Yum!!
1 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp granulated white sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 c. milk (i used 1/2 c. skim, 1/2 c. whole milk)
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Whisk together dry ingredients in large bowl. Combine egg, milk & melted butter. Add wet ingredients to the dry. Stir for no more than 10 seconds. Batter should be lumpy.
Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat until a few sprinkles of water dropped on the pan/griddle splatter. Using a small ladle or scoop, pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan/griddle, spacing them a few inches from each other. hen the bottoms of the pancakes are brown and bubbles start to appear on the top surfaces of the pancakes, turn over. Cook until lightly browned.
Repeat with remaining batter. Makes six 3″ pancakes.
