Combine the following:
1 1/2 C. flour
3 TB sugar
1 3/4 TB baking powder
1 tsp. salt
In a separate bowl combine the following:
1 1/2 C milk
3 TB melted butter (I use oil because of the cost of butter here)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add dry mixture to liquid mixture. It will look a little ubble, and it really spreads out after you put it on the pan.
For Buttermilk pancakes:
Add 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Decrease baking powder to 1 tsp. Substitute buttermilk for regular milk.
(Note: as a substitute for buttermilk, add a teaspoon of vinegar to a cup of milk. You will immediately see the milk curdle.)
