Step 1: What you need
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups milk (sour or butter is better)
- 1 tsp soda (baking)
- 2 1/2 cups flour (i usually add another 1/2 cup or so to thicken it)
- 2 tsp sugar
- 4 Tbsp oil
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
Step 3: Add the rest
Step 4: Cook 'em
Heat the pan to hot (you want it hot before you start cooking at all). When they are at the right temp you should be able to flick some water on, and the water will skitter around in little bubbles. Whenthe pan is hot butter it and start cooking.
Pour the batter onto the pan into 3-4" circles. Let them cook until bubbles start showing on the top side, as soon as it's nice and bubbled, flip it. You should have a nicely browned side if you timed it right (it takes a little practice to get the perfect looking ones, but as long as they arent black, they're fine). Cook on this side until browned. Pile on plate and serve as soon as you have 8-10 done (hotter and fresher is much better)
The last pic shows the bubbles right before it's ready to flip. It's better when there are more bubbles)
Step 5: Enjoy!
when cooking you can scatter on some berries, choc chips, or other things for more tasty fun. Even without added things they are great, just serve them with some other breakfast stuff (eggs and sausage, or bacon, etc...). They are best with REAL maple syrup, not that sugar water dyed brown.
