Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract optional

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in microwave for 30 seconds, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  • Stir milk and egg together.
  • Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  • Pour the butter, vanilla, and milk mixture into the well.
  • Use a wire whisk to stir everything together until just combined. It will be slightly thick and lumpy, but should be well incorporated.
  • Allow the batter to rest while heating a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to medium high heat.
  • Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  • Cook each side for 3-6 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
