We love pancakes in this house. They are a personal favorite especially with warm, banana topping and maple syrup. I dislike pancakes out of the box and why even bother with boxed mixtures when making them from scratch is so easy! Here is the recipe I use.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter, melted
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, egg and melted butter. Add the wet and dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with your favorite topping.
** These pancakes freeze really well too. You can make a big batch and freeze them on a baking sheet. Once they are frozen, put in zip locker bags. When you are ready to serve, just pop it in the microwave for a minute to thaw and serve as listed above.
