Whenever there is any sort of question of what to do for dinner at dinner time and you're hungry... breakfast seems to be a great answer whether it's pancakes, waffles, frittata or quiche. I have tried many pancake recipes and this one I found through King Arthur, and it's my absolute favorite. So toss out your Bisquick and pull out some flour, you won't be disappointed!
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups milk (buttermilk is even better)
3 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups All-purpose or bread flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
Place eggs and milk in a mixer and place on high speed for about 3 minutes. You want it to be nice and fluffy/airy. Stir in the oil/butter. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture until they are incorporated. Scrap down the sides if necessary. Do not over mix! Let it rest for 15 minutes. Perfect time to fry up some bacon. Cook on a griddle or frying pan with butter. Enjoy with some real deal pure maple syrup!
Variations: Add in blueberries, chopped apples, sliced bananas, strawberries, pumpkin puree, pecans, and/or spices.
