Old-Fashioned Pancakes

To me, pancakes mean home, love, comfort. I have so many fond memories of my Mom making pancakes for me on Saturday mornings and I'd like to pass on those feelings of love and comfort to my own daughter as well. I found this recipe for old-fashioned pancakes a few years back and it has become my hands-down favorite. It's got just the right texture, thickness and delicious buttery flavor. YUM!


Yield 9-12 pancakes


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cup milk
1 egg
3 Tablespoons butter, melted


In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center and add milk, egg, and melted butter. Mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with buttermilk syrup.
