Good ol' simple traditional pancakes. There is something so homey about them. Warm and delicious with maple syrup or raspberry jam, maybe some strawberries and whipped cream... This is THE go to food when we can't think of anything else to eat. This recipe was in my very first Betty Crocker cookbook that I received while in 7th grade Home Ec. Everyone has their favorite pancake recipe ... this is mine.

Traditional Pancakes

1 egg
1 cup flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
3/4 cup milk
1 TBS brown sugar
2 TBS vegetable oil ( I use canola)
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Beat egg with beater in medium bowl until fluffy. Beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. (For thinner pancakes, stir in an additional 1 to 2 TBS milk) Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat to about 375 degrees. Grease with butter. (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles skitter around, heat is just right)

For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook on other side until golden brown.

I think I'll make these Saturday. They look real good. How many pancakes does the recipe yield? Do you prefer to make them with AP or WW flour?

It makes about 10- 4 inch pancakes. I usually put the extra milk in and I always double the recipe. Depending on the day we use either all purpose or whole wheat and more often than not we do half and half. It is delicious either way. We even add things in like chocolate chips or blueberries. It is a great basic recipe to adapt to make your own.
