Old Fashioned Pancakes and Happy New Year!

Good Morning and Happy New Year!!!

Today is a fantastic day for Pancakes.  Don't you think?  I found an easy recipe at allrecipes.com.  However, after making it I have to say that I prefer my pancakes a bit sweeter and less doughy.  SO, when I make this again I'll substitute the butter for applesauce which should give me a lighter, sweeter pancake.  Also, I like to add a generous sprinkle of cinnamon to my pancake batter.

Enjoy and "tweak away"!

Old Fashioned Pancakes
I'm lucky I took a picture before they vanished!
Make 8 servings

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups milk
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon white sugar


In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
