1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons refined sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter or canola oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
*Preheat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Do not grease pan when cooking pancakes.
Put flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl and mix together. In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk, and melted butter or canola oil and mix together.
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, a little at a time. Starting at the center of the flour mixture, mix slowly with a rubber spatula or a hand whisk in a circular motion until you reach the side of the bowl. Do not overwork the flour.
Pour the batter to the heated non-stick pan using a 1/4 measuring cup (for dry ingredients). When bubbles appear on top (about 3 minutes), flip the pancake and cook the other side for another two minutes.
Makes about 6 to 7 four and a half inch pancakes.
*Serves 3 to 4
*Serve with butter and maple syrup.
*Sprinkle some blueberries or sliced strawberries (optional).
