My new favorite pancake recipe!

Lately I have had crazy cravings for pancakes and french toast. Now, french toast is pretty easy to make but pancakes are a different story! It's difficult for me because I don't have a griddle, the pan doesn't heat evenly, there's too much oil in the pan, the batter is too thick, too runny... you get the idea. They never come out looking right! They are either too dark or too light or have white blotches all over them! Not the prettiest pancakes. I've tried out quite a few recipes in the last 2-3 weeks and I have a new favorite! I has the perfect consistency and cooks quite evenly.

Pancakes Recipie from

1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 egg
2 - 3 tablespoons oil

Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the milk and eggs. Mix well and try to get some of the lumps out of the batter. Don't worry about making it perfectly smooth. It will be fine. Heat a skillet on medium heat. When heated, scoop the pancake batter recipe into the frying pan with a large spoon to make individual pancakes. The pan will probably only take 1 or two pancakes at a time. Cook on one side until the top begins to bubble, then flip over and cook on the other side.
