Pancakes: The Sequel

Brother's right, we should have posted the recipe.

1 cup flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 beaten egg or egg replacer
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional, but tasty!)

1. In large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
2. In small bowl, combine wet ingredients.
3. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until moistened.
4. Heat lightly greased skillet on stovetop. Use about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and bake about 2 min. per side.

Makes 8 to 10 pancakes.

This is actually our "half recipe" version, which makes a light breakfast's worth of pancakes for two people. If you double it, you'll end up with 2 very full people.

Also, I just learned a really neat baking fact: Don't mix this until smooth. Pancake batter is supposed to be lumpy--lumpy means some of the baking powder will be not activated yet, leaving it to activate while the pancakes are cooking. That makes them rise better. Neat, huh?

Before Eric, I pretty much used Bisquick, too, but I put Eric in charge of breakfast and he just uses regular flour.
