Colleen has just informed me that it is Pancake Week, and though I'm a day late in starting, I'll take any excuse to make pancakes. I'm thinking, why not have a different recipe each day of this special week?! Tonight's recipe comes from Laurel's Kitchen Caring by Laurel Robertson (the original Laurel of Laurel's Kitchen).
2 cups flour (the recipe calls for all whole wheat. I used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat and 1/2 cup white)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 large eggs
2 1/2 - 3 cups milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter (the recipe called for oil - but I wanted to use butter!)
Stir together dry ingredients.
Beat eggs lightly and combine with milk.
Add to the dry ingredients and mix briefly.
Stir in the butter.
Spray a griddle or electric fry pan with cooking spray.
Pour batter on by large spoonfuls.
Cook over medium heat, turning once when bubbles come to the surface and pop, and the edges are slightly dry.
Boy, oh boy, these are great!
