This is going to change your life irrevocably. Forgive any scintilla of self-congratulatory preening and accept my boast as simple, enthusiastic exuberance. That is the spirit in which it is intended. But I tell you: you just mix up the ingredients below, keep them in a container at easy reach and then every time you are required to be the usher-forth of good things of a morning, you just scoop some dry mixture out, mix with egg, milk and melted butter as directed and that's it. Pancakes a'plenty, without even having to think about it. You know it makes sense.
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
For the pancake mix:
Mix the above ingredients together and store in a jar.
For the pancake batter:
For each 1 cup pancake mix, add 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Do not overmix.
Heat a flat griddle or pan over medium-high heat.
Spoon drops of 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle and when bubbles appear on the surface of the little pancakes, flip them over to make them golden brown on both sides. A minute or so a side should do it.
