I found this in Yahoo Answers when I was looking for a pancake recipe that did not consist of baking powder.

I promised my kids pancakes this Saturday morning only to discover I had no trace of baking powder in my home. After a quick internet search, I decided to give this recipe a whirl. It did the job, however I had to make a few adjustments. 1.) 2 cups of milk is just too much for the amount of dry ingredients in this recipe, I would recommend cutting down to 1.5 cups. 2.) I added a bit more sugar to get the taste of the batter "right," just a half teaspoon more. Other than that, this is a solid classic pancake recipe for when you're in a pinch (or without a pinch of baking powder).
