When I was a child I used to use the pre-made pancake powder from a box. Boy, have times changed since discovering this easy recipe in my mother's old high school cookbook.
Griddle Cakes (Pancakes)
-1 cup all purpose flour
-1 cup milk (normally I'd use almond milk, but I ran out)
-2 tbsp melted butter
-2 tbsp sugar
-2 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp salt
*blueberries and chocolate chips are optional
First, wash and dry the blueberries so that they won't be wet when you add them to the batter. Whisk all the dry ingredients together. Then mix all the wet ingredients together. Then add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and use a hand mixer to combine well.
Once the batter has been made, pour about 1/4 cup of the mixture onto a hot, greased frying pan, and then scatter a handful of blueberries on top. When small bubbles start to form in the batter, carefully flip the pancake over, and fry until golden brown. Then serve with extra blueberries on top and either syrup or agave nectar.
And that's it. These pancakes were so good and a really nice change from my regular chocolate chip pancakes. Perhaps next time I should make apple cinnamon pancakes? : )
