Good Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Say goodbye to Aunt Jemima! Once you taste these homemade pancakes, I think you’ll agree they’re much better than the boxed ones! Add a bit of vanilla or fruit (frozen blueberries work well) to sweeten them up. If you want, mix up the dry ingredients in advance and give it away as a gift in a jar with instructions on how to finish making the pancakes, or just store it for even quicker pancakes on rushed mornings.

Yields 8

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (for a healthier twist, I like to use half white and half whole wheat flour)
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk or milk substitute (vegan: soy milk)
  • 1 egg (vegan egg replacer: 1 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G plus 2 tablespoons warm water. Mix thoroughly before adding to the recipe)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted (vegan: substitute with Earth Balance)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the mil, egg, and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat (or 400 degrees Fahrenheit). Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
