For my 100th post, I decided to make a pancake breakfast. Fluffy, light-as-a-feather pancakes and applewood-smoked bacon (my favorite kind of bacon) was a perfect breakfast. A bit of butter and just a touch of maple syrup (real maple syrup, of course) is all I like on my pancakes. The batter for these pancakes has more than the usual amount of baking powder. Once you mix it all together and let it rest for just a few minutes, you can see your batter "poof" up. Not your run-of-the-mill pancake batter. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill breakfast!
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sift together dry ingredients. Combine egg, milk, and vegetable oil. Add dry ingredients to liquid; beat until smooth. Cook on hot griddle. (Bubbles will appear on the uncooked side of the pancakes as they start to cook through. When bubbles pop and sides of pancakes appear dry, it is time to flip pancakes to cook other side.) Makes about 12 dollar-size pancakes or 8 four-inch pancakes.
