Fluffy Old Fashioned Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
This feeds our family of 6 but it's just as easy to double or triple and stick the extras in the fridge for later.

Why buy a premade mix when this is so easy? If you want the convenience of a mix just get out a zipper baggie and combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Write the amount of milk, egg, and butter needed.

NOTE: if I want a quick breakfast that's full of protein I'll add up to 8 eggs to this mixture and skip the eggs on the side. And, for me, flour is usually a whole grain mix including bean flour.
