Aunt Janet’s pancakes
This recipe’s been used in my family ever since a family vacation in Door County, Wisconsin, 16 years ago. One morning all the kids wanted pancakes and my sister in law, Janet, had memorized a recipe that she had made many times. They were a hit with everyone. Since then, nobody in the family’s bought pancake mix.
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons oil
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk the egg, milk and oil together in a different bowl. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, until somewhat smooth. (Small lumps are okay.)
Heat griddle and brush lightly with oil. When griddle is hot and a drop of water can dance on the griddle, spoon or ladle batter onto griddle. Turn when bubbles appear on surface. Cook second side until puffed and golden brown.
Serve with real butter and real maple syrup.
