how to make pancakes?
Have you ever cooked breakfast for children? Been too exhausted to even conceive of preparing dinner? Have you never had an attractive person spend the night in your bed? There are few things an adult American should know how to cook, but pancakes are one of them. The good news is they are easy—almost as easy from scratch as from a box mix. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now. Go check. Fifteen minutes later, you'll have yourself a stack of pancakes.

2 c. all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 c. milk

  • Sift together first four ingredients (to prevent lumps).
  • In a separate bowl, mix egg and milk, then add it flour mix, stirring until just smooth. Then stir in butter. (If you want to mix it up, throw in blueberries, a tiny dice of apple, or bits of banana.)
  • Grease a griddle or nonstick pan with cooking spray or a little vegetable oil. Heat pan on medium for about ten minutes.
  • Pour batter to form pancakes of whatever size you like. Cook first side until bubbles form on top, about three minutes; then flip and cook other side until it, too, is brown, about two minutes.
  • Serve immediately with butter and syrup or hold briefly in warm oven.
