Pancakes that can be stirred up as fast as a mix. As a young cook, I tried mixes but most called for an egg and oil. So I thought since I had to get these out anyway, I may as well skip the mix and use my own flour and milk also. This is what I came up with.
- Place flour, sugar, oil, and egg in a bowl. Whisk in milk until smooth.
- Pre-heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly oil or grease skillet with vegetable shortening.
- Test skillet by using a small amount of batter. It should gently puff up after about 30 seconds.
- Discard test piece and ladle about 1/2 cup batter into skillet.
- I like to think that I am actually baking on top of the stove. If the skillet is too hot, the outside will burn before the middle is done enough to turn.
- Let cook until bubbly on top and under side is a golden brown. flip and cook till golden brown.
- I have fun with this by making my childrens initials (thick block style letters). Also, you can drizzle a design on the hot skillet and then ladle pancake batter over this. When flipped, the drizzle design will show up. You can put the batter in a squeeze bottle to really be precise. This really delights small children and lets your 'almost grown' teen-agers know that they will always be your babies.
Oh MY! These are wonderful! Bye Bye mixes , hello homemade! LOL Easy mix up and if I only had a griddle they'd be quick for me to cook too! LOL I love the flavor of these! The bit of sweet with the sugar ... Mmmm .. these will DEFINITELY be made again!! Thanks so much for posting!
Thanks bama for a quick supper for me to make tonight after working 10 hours. We often have breakfast for supper and paired with some sausage, DH and DS's were good to go. I used 3/4 cup buttermilk and 1/4 cup skim milk. Also, I added a few blueberries to the batter. I love the added sugar, as it was just the right amount of sweetness. Thanks for posting a good one!!!
