Perfect Pancake Batter

Shall we change up the recipe?

Here is the most perfect batter for pancakes! I never really liked pancakes because we always used waffle batter to make them. Since we have discovered this recipe, we are addicted to pancakes! I literally crave them now!

2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
8 tbsp melted butter or margarine

1. Mix dry ingredients in deep bowl.
2. Mix wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients, stirring only enough to mix.
3. Allow batter to rest for 20-30 minutes. This is key!
4. Spray griddle with non stick spray and cook on medium heat. Makes 12-16 pancakes. This recipe can easily be cut in half for smaller families.

Batter is somewhat thick - that's what makes these so good when you cook them. You can add a small amount of milk if needed.
