My little boy and I LOVE LOVE LOVE pancakes. We could probably eat them every single day if it probably wasn't so bad for you to eat yummy maple syrup every day. I was so excited this morning when i found a basic recipe for pancakes that only required the basics that I always have on hand (because buttermilk isn't one of those). So thank you Martha Stewart for making my morning that much brighter.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tbls sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbls melted butter or vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbls Vegetable oil (for cooking)
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
Heat a large skillet (nonstick or cast-iron) or griddle over medium. Fold a sheet of paper towel in half, and moisten with oil; carefully rub skillet with oiled paper towel (or just use cooking spray like i did)
For each pancake, spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto skillet, using the back of the spoon to spread batter into a round (you should be able to fit 3 to 4 in a large skillet).
Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a baking sheet or platter; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm in oven. Continue with more oil and remaining batter. (You'll have 10 to 12 pancakes.) Serve warm, with desired toppings.
