Pancakes

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture; set aside.
  2. In another medium mixing bowl combine the egg, milk, and cooking oil. Add egg mixture all at once to the dry mixture. Stir just till moistened (batter should be lumpy).
  3. For standard-size pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. For dollar-size pancakes, pour about 1 tablespoon batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side or till pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve warm. Makes 8 to 10 standard-size (4-inch) or 36 dollar-size (2-inch) pancakes (8 servings).

I've been making this recipe since I was a middle school kid the 70s using my moms cookbook...I'm still making this recipe

If it doesn't rise properly maybe the baking powder was old...if batter too thin, maybe ingredients not measured accurately

Its always perfect, it always produces lovely, light perfect texture pancakes

Batter turned out rather thin. Next time adding less milk. Didn't rise much.

I will have to amend the old recipe to this one. With less flour, would be a bit lighter. Ratios would be easier to amend.
