My basic recipe is from my Grandma's old cookbook but I recently revised the recipe due to feedback from my sister, she thought they were too heavy so I lightened them up a little! That is the fun with cooking, you can always make adjustments. I am always on a mission for recipes that I can make ahead for those nights that I don't feel like cooking. We like breakfast for dinner sometimes and pancakes hit the spot! These also freeze well so you can make them ahead and thaw them out for a weekend brunch. If you want to fluff them up even more you can exchange some of the milk with club soda.
1 egg
3 T butter, melted
2 T sugar

Mix together and add dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour (white or wheat)
2 tsp baking powder

Then add:
1 - 1 1/4 cups milk (buttermilk is my favorite but you can use your favorite milk.
I use a wooden spoon to mix everything and leave the batter a little lumpy. Add more milk if you want them a little lighter. Cook on a hot griddle (about 325 degrees is using electric) for about 2 minutes before flipping; you should see bubbles on the tops. Makes about 13 - 16 pancakes.

You can also add 1 cup chopped apples and 1 tsp cinnamon when you add the milk if you want to try something different.
Love and peace,
