I know a lot of pancake mixes are on the market and they
are just fine. But homemade pancakes are so simple to make that I don't
see any reason to use a package mix. At least with homemade pancakes you
know exactly what ingredients are in them and to me they simply taste better.
Add any fruit or nuts. Blueberries are excellent!
Preparation Time: 30 minutes Serving Size: (12) 4-inch

In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder,
baking soda and salt. Measure buttermilk in a 2 cup measuring
cup. Add egg and mix slightly. Pour into flour mixture. Add
vanilla extract and oil to the bowl and mix well to combine.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place a teaspoon of vegetable
oil on heated skillet. Use a 1/4 cup measurer to pour as many
pancakes that will fit onto the skillet. The mix will spread
about 4 inches. If using fruit or nuts, place them on top of
the batter immediately. Cook until bubbles pop on the top of
the pancake and they start to dry around the edges. They should
be golden brown on the bottom. Flip and cook until golden brown
on this side. Continue until all mix is used. Serve with butter
and real dark amber maple syrup. Your favorite cooked sausage
links are also good accompaniments.
