Everybody has their own favorite recipe for pancakes. We have tried so many pancake recipes I can't even begin to count them. Some were too cake like, too sweet and fluffy. Some just were bland. Once we found this recipe, it has been attached to the fridge for easy Saturday morning reference. Just in case the magnet should fall and the recipe get lost, here it is, preserved on the blogosphere for easy reference.


1 1/4 c. flour
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. milk
2 large eggs
3 tbsp butter, melted

Mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt) in a large bowl, I prefer glass so I can easily see if there are any unmixed parts hiding near the bottom.

Mix the wet ingredients (eggs, milk and butter) in a seperate bowl. Pour the wet into the dry and mix with a whisk. Make sure to mix enough to not leave any flour pockets or lumps, but don't over beat.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once up to temperature, pour in the mixture in small batches. A ladle works best. Also, now is the time to add your favorite fruits, nuts or my personal preference, chocolate chips. Wait until bubbles form on the surface and stay open once popped, then flip.

Once both sides are golden brown, remove from skillet and serve. This recipe makes nine  4" round pancakes.
