what to eat wednesday- Pancakes

It's spring- and when it comes to food I think breakfast in bed or brunch.
Easter, Mothers day, my birthday... all great reasons to have a yummy breakfast.

Well, this recipe comes out a lot at dinner. It is Jay's "go to"- when my night is a little nutty. AND it is also great for breakfast time too! I am not sure where Jay got this, but my guess would be the internet.
The recipe is really so simple, just a few ingredients, that most have on hand all the time.

1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 heaping tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda: set aside.
In a separate large bowl, beat together milk, oil, and egg.
Slowly whisk dry mixture into wet mixture until mixed well. Do not over-mix.
Using a ladle, pour about 1/4 cup of batter at a time onto a skillet heated over medium heat.
When the edges appear to harden, flip the pancakes cook on the other side for same amount of time or until light brown.
(we usually double this)
I make these too, but they just do not taste the same as when Jay makes them.

We love pancakes for dinner - and I really love making many extra to freeze for Carly to eat for weekday breakfasts.

Isn't it funny how 2 people can make the same recipe and it doesn't taste the same. It happens A LOT with recipes my mom gives me.

Julie had a good recipe for syrup.
It would be great on those pancakes! To bad she doesn't have a blog she could post it....Julie are you reading this?
