Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, stirred or sifted before measuring
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Preparation:

Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and 1 1/2 cups of milk; add to flour mixture, stirring only until smooth. Blend in melted butter. If the batter seems too thick to pour, add a little more milk. Cook on a hot, greased griddle, using about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, and lightly browned on the bottom; turn and brown the other side. Recipe for pancakes serves 4.

A good foundation with potential for improvement, Member JSRFgirlywhirl

I took the advice of a previous reviewer and doubled the amounts of sugar and added cinnamon. I kept that same recommendation but I ALSO added about two tablespoons of lemon juice, nutmeg, and some cocoa mocha powder along with some vanilla extract. These came out great! These were the thickest rising pancakes I have ever made, and were a hit with my boyfriend. This recipe yielded me about 8 pancakes, using an 1/2C measure for each portion. :) I would have included a picture, but I didn't have a chance to take one! I served these with oven-made bacon, and used the grease from the bacon to fry up some eggs along with it.
