things i cooked

A pretty basic recipe from The Joy of Cooking (yes, really.) I make this for the kids all the time. Liv asked for them one morning eons ago, and I told her I did not have any pancake mix. It was her idea to look in my cookbooks, and this is so basic that I actually had everything I needed to make them on hand. That, my friends, is how tradition is born.

Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flower (I use whole wheat and it comes out fine.)
3 tablespoons sugar (splenda works.)
1 3/4 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Combine in another bowl:
1 1/2 cups milk (I've had no problems with skim milk.)
3 tablespoons butter, melted (I have also not had any problems with fake butter.)
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Mix the liquid ingredients quickly into the dry ingredients.

The Joy of Cooking is set up funny. At this point they refer me to the "about pancakes and griddle cakes" section which I am not going to re-type because it's not short. I'll assume you all know what to do from here.
