perfect plain pancakes
recipe from hillbilly housewife
1 cup flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 Tablespoons oil
in a mix and pour bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. combine egg, milk and oil in another bowl. add egg/milk mixture into flour mixture all at once. stir until just blended- the batter will be lumpy- leave it. plop a spoonful of butter on a hot greased griddle and cook pancakes. use 1/4 cup batter per pancake, should make about 8 pancakes.
*substitute buttermilk for milk for buttermilk pancakes. stir 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries into prepared batter for blueberry pancakes. any fresh berries are delicious in pancakes- try raspberry pancakes!
