Pancakes for dinner!

You know you have good pancakes when they are happy to be eaten! I LOVE pancakes. I make them when I am tired or want some comfort food, there is just something about a yeasty sweet treat. I made them for dinner the other night and as you can see below my daughter loves them.
Nice and Fluffy Pancakes

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tablespoon sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg
3 tablespoons butter (melted) or oil if you prefer

1 1/4 cups milk


Put all dry ingredients together and make a well in the center, add the wet ingredients.
Don’t over mix a few lumps are fine.
Heat a heavy griddle, I use a cast iron that doesn’t need any extra oil but you can lightly oil the pan if needed.
The pan is hot enough when a drop of water breaks into several smaller balls which 'dance' around the pan.
Pour a small amount of batter (approx 1/8 cup) into pan and tip to spread out or spread with spoon.
When bubbles appear on surface and begin to break, turn over and cook the other side.
You can use whatever you like as a sauce. We are a aunt Jemima house. The melted butter has added such a nice flavor that you really won’t need more butter!
