from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook
makes about 8, 3-inch pancakes
1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Egg, Beaten
1 Cup Milk
2 Tablespoons Cooking Oil (I used vegetable oil)
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, set aside. In a small bowl, combine the egg, milk, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened (batter should be lumpy). Pour about 1/4 cup batter into a 3-inch circle onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve with maple syrup.
Pancakes are the ultimate comfort food. When I need extra comfort, I sprinkle milk chocolate chips into the batter and serve with peanut butter, like in the picture. These are so easy and fast to whip together, just like these waffles!
