Yield:
3 to 4 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • About 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled, plus extra for cooking
  • Softened butter, for serving
  • Maple syrup, room temperature, for serving
Directions
  • Heat a griddle or skillet until hot. Sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Whisk together egg, milk and butter. Add egg mixture to the flour and stir just to moisten -- the batter will be lumpy, do not overmix. If too dry, add a few more spoonfuls of milk. Lower heat to medium-high and lightly brush griddle with butter. Spoon in the batter, by 1/4 cupfuls, spreading to 4-inch rounds. Cook until edges are dry and little bubbles appear on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook second side just until lightly browned. Transfer pancakes as they are made to warm plates and serve immediately, with butter and syrup.
