Martha's Perfect Pancakes

Best pancake recipe I have ever tried. Got it from marthawhite.com. Enjoy!

Ready In: 25 mins

Yields: 12 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2  eggs
  • 1  cup milk
  • 3  tablespoons  melted butter (I just use canola oil, easier than measuring & melting butter)
  • 1 12 cups self rising flour
  • 2 -3  tablespoons sugar (I usually add double)

Directions

  1. Heat griddle or large skillet to medium-high heat (375 degrees F.). Grease lightly with oil.
  2. In medium bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and melted butter; mix well. Add all remaining ingredients; stir just until large lumps disappear.
  3. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbles begin to break on surface. Turn; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. My tips: I use a skillet and heat between med-low to medium. I find they darken quickly if cooked too hot (on my stove). I think it makes no difference in which order the ingredients are added and mixed. I let my mix sit for a few minutes. I double the recipe in order to have enough to feed my bunch. If you don't have self rising flour you can make it by adding 1 teaspoon baking powder & 1/4 teaspoons salt to every cup of all purpose flour used in your recipe. This was the first homemade mix I ever tried. I had always made from a box. I have yet to find a homemade recipe for pancakes that measure up to this one. Hope you enjoy them!
