It’s the weekend, which in our house means…PANCAKES! Steve and I are forever five when it comes to pancakes. We love silver dollars and are not embarrassed to ask for them at restaurants. These little babies can be made as silver dollars or regular sized. This recipe makes the perfect amount of pancakes for 2-4 people and you can easily double it when you have more!
Why buy a mix when you can whip these up lickety split????
Beat 1 egg, 1 1/2 cups milk, and 2 Tablespoons melted butter together in a mixing cup. If you like vanilla in your pancakes add 1/2 teaspoon now!
Mix together the 1 1/4 cups flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1 Tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium sized bowl. Whisk in the egg mixture. Let the batter sit for about five minutes. It will get pretty puffy. If it looks too thick, add in a little more milk!
Get your griddle nice and hot and spoon the batter into circles. Cook for a few minutes per side. Our friend, Teo discovered a trick to figuring out when to flip. Wait until the bubbles in the batter stand still and stop refilling themselves with batter. Thanks, Teo!! This batter makes nice puffy and light pancakes!
Eat them with MAPLE SYRUP of course. Or any delicious fruit topping. Pretty much anything is good on these babies.
