I know I have a few recipes here for pancakes, but those were from before I found this recipe. THIS is my #1 favorite go-to pancake recipe for good now, and my #2 recipe are these. These are a basic pancake that come out nice and fluffy, how I like them. You can use with regular whole milk or buttermilk, I've used both and it's been fine. I like to double this so I can freeze any extras for during the week. Weekends are my big breakfast times, when Mr. is home and we've got no where to hurry off to. I've used this recipe for a while now (ok Aug. '09) and on my copy I don't have where I got it from. So trusty Google answered it for me, all I did was search -fluffy pancakes with a fork if you're so inclined- and it brought it up! I can't believe they haven't been blogged yet! Give these a try and let me know how you like them. I changed my ingredients just a little.
adapted from Whisk Kid
1 1/2 c flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 Tbls sugar
1 1/4 c milk or buttermilk, warmed slightly in the microwave (just to make sure it doesn't solidify the melted butter)
1 egg, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbls butter, melted
Sift together the flour, powder, salt and sugar twice. Make a well in the center and set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together (with a fork, if you're so inclined!) the remaining ingredients, then pour into the dry ingredients. Whisk briefly, being careful not to overwork the batter. (I do 10 strokes)
Pour (I use a 1/4 C measuring) into a HOT oiled skillet over medium-high heat. Before flipping you can sprinkle them with blueberries, raspberries, chopped strawberries, sliced bananas, nuts.... Anything's good!
Brown on both sides and serve!
