My father was a chemist and loved to experiment in the kitchen. He created a simple pancake recipe that is easy to remember because you just use 1 of everything. I usually triple it for my family.
1 cup flour (I use whole wheat flour)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt (I usually halve that)
1TBSP sugar (I usually skip this)
1 TBSP oil (I use melted butter)
1 cup milk (Buttermilk, kefir, sour cream, yogurt or any combination work great, he usually used yogurt)
1 cup bluberries (optional)
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add oil and milk. Mix well (I like to mix it in the food processor or blender). heat griddle. add ladleful to hot buttered griddle. Flip when bubbles start to form. finished when brown and cooked through. Serve with syrup or your favorite topping.
