Best Pancakes Ever!!! (Don't forget the vanilla!)

2 eggs
1 & 3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. oil
1 tsp. vanilla

1 & 3/4 c. flour
2 TBS. sugar
4 TBS. baking powder

Whisk eggs 'til frothy & light. Stir in milk, oil & vanilla, mixing well. Add flour, sugar & baking powder. Stir until smooth & most lumps have disappeared. Do not over do it.

Allow batter to "proof" while the griddle heats up. Set non-stick griddle or electric fry pan to 350., waiting 'til fully heated before adding batter.

Pour in 1/4 c. batter, allowing room to spread. Wait until batter forms bubbles that rise to the surface and burst. Gently flip pancake and allow to brown to a light golden. Flip onto plate. ("Flap" onto plate if making "flapjacks".)

If desired, add blueberries or mini chocolate chips to batter before proofing.

Pile on plate, pour on syrup, add sausage on side if desired.

Don't forget a nice side of strawberries, orange slices or banana.


Repeat as needed.

My pancakes are similar to you but I use melted "butter - not margerine" instead of oil. Try it!!! I read it in a novel and tried it. Like buttermilk pancakes actually.
Love your collection of recipes.
