This recipe is from the Joy of Cooking gigantic cookbook. One day I wanted to make pancakes when we were first married, and I didn't have a box of pancake mix. So, I decided to try these and I have never gone back to the box since. I don't know what it is, but these pancakes are magic. We eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at our house. Enjoy!
Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Whisk together in another bowl:
1 1/2 cups milk
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently whisk them together, mixing just until combined. Spoon 1/3 cup batter onto the griddle and you know the rest!
