Good Old-Fashioned Pancakes

I’m not ashamed to admit that I sometimes take shortcuts in the kitchen for the sake of convenience. But making pancakes from a mix has never, and will never, be one of them.  Pancakes are one of my favourite breakfast foods – well let’s face it, they’re good any time of day. Nothing beats a cup of coffee and a stack of homemade pancakes on a lazy weekend morning. This recipe has been in my family longer than I can remember, and for good reason. It whips up delicious, fluffy pancakes in no time, and they’re so much better than anything you could get out of a box. So go ahead, give them a try! Bonus: this recipe easily doubles (or triples!) if you’re serving a crowd.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg. Then gently beat in remaining ingredients. Pour the batter (about 1/3 cup at a time) over a hot griddle or frying pan. Flip when the surface begins to bubble, and cook the second side until light golden brown. Serve with butter, lots of maple syrup, and fresh seasonal fruit. Makes about 6 pancakes.

You'll probably want to make a double batch...
