Sweet Pancakes

This freshly made stack of pancakes makes you want to run out to IHOP and grab a plateful.  It’s not necessary to get dressed, put on your shoes and coat, fire up the car, fight traffic, and the wait for them to make your stack.  
The childhood family would be so jealous if they only knew how many times a week we have pancakes. Giving yourself rewards with sweet, filling food necessitates the desire to snack on sugary treats during the day.  This Very easy breakfast will satisfy not only your tummy but your sweet tooth, not to mention they are as easy as 1, 2, 3. To make these even easier, keep a container of the dry ingredients already mixed together.  When craving the cakes, use 1 cup of the mix with 1 egg, 1 c. milk and 2 tablespoons of oil.  Voila!

1 Cup Flour

1 Tablespoon Sugar

2 Teaspoons baking powder

1 beaten egg

1 Cup milk

2 Tablespoons cooking oil 

1 large bowl, 1 small bowl, 1 large plastic spoon, 1 spatula, 1 fork, 1 plate, 1 griddle or skillet, ½ cup measure

Preheat griddle to 325 degrees or heat skillet with a dash of oil on medium heat.  

In the large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and baking powder.  In the small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, and cooking oil. Beat until egg is thoroughly beaten.   Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture.  Beat for about 1 minute with large spoon.
Pour ½ cup of batter onto griddle or skillet.  Use the back of the large plastic spoon to even the batter into a circle on the griddle or skillet.  Let pancake cook for about 2 minutes.  Pancake will look like dry swiss cheese when done one side.  Turn the pancake over and let cook another minute or two depending on how brown you like your cakes.
