alright so this may be the third pancake recipe on snackobacko– but this is the go-to one. it takes about 5 mins to make the batter, another 5 before you are eating delicious pancakes. for sunday morning, for dinner, anytime. if you have leftover- douse with a little bit of water before putting in toaster oven. I think the key to these is the copious amount of baking soda. it makes them nice and fluffy. sometimes/usually i half this recipe (using whole egg)
Rita’s pancakes via Ruthie
Makes about 9 small pancakes
1 ½ cups flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract (i still use 1 tsp when halving recipe- if doing full recipe could do like 1 tsp or go up to 1 1/2)
Optional add-ins (blueberries, mini chocolate chips, mashed bananas, etc.)
In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Make a well in the center. Pour in egg, milk and butter. Mix to combine. Mix in the add-ins. (Ruthie says- When using chocolate chips, I drop them onto the pancakes when they’re in the pan before turning them.
I go with non-stick pan. Melt a little butter in the pan. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup for each pancake, pour batter into pan. When bottom is lightly browned [you will see bubbles popping in the batter], use a wide spatula to turn pancakes and brown the second side.
Serve with maple syrup, powdered sugar, cinnamon/sugar mixture, or a topping of your choice.
