A friend of mine was searching for tips to make good pancakes on Facebook last week. I sent her my tips and links for my pancake recipes when I realised that I have never posted my basic pancake recipe on here. How could that be? I'm always making pancakes. So here's my recipe, it comes from Betty Crocker's Red Cookbook (adapted a little).
1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour (I almost always use whole wheat)
3/4 cup milk (I usually up this to a full cup of milk, it depends how thin or thick you like your pancakes)
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp veg. oil
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
(not called for but I usually add a tsp of vanilla extract too)
Beat egg until fluffy. Add rest of remaining ingredients and mix with a whisk (don't over mix). Heat griddle or pan over low-medium heat (or 375* on griddle). Grease with non-stick spray or margarine/butter. For each pancake pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the heated pan. Cook until they are bubbly on top, then flip to cook the other side. Serve with margarine/butter and syrup.
