Sister's Homemade Pancakes...

So if you read my blog a lot, you know that a lot of my yummy recipes get handed to me by my family. Fortunately for me, my Mom (we call her Debs) is an AWESOME cook and aways has been. She, instilled an interested in my older sister (Danika) and I. We happened to have a younger brother, who married a sweet young chickie (Lisa) that likes to cook as well, and I married into a family with an adveturous sister-in-law (Gelayol) who's always trying new recipes and sharing them. So from time to time, when you read my blog you will hear me say that I got my recipes from one of them... including this one! So here's a shout out to them... and a BIG thanks to their love for cooking and sharing!

Here's my sister's Homemade Pancake recipe... once you try it you won't ever want to use one of those boxes of pre-made stuff that you just add water to- these are just too good... and much better for you! Plus, chances are you will already have all the ingredients to make them right there in your pantry. AND if you have an allergy, you can try switching the flour to the one that you use! See???? I told you they were GREAT!

1& 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP sugar
1& 1/4 cup milk
1 egg
3 TBSP butter, melted
*** chocolate chips- optional
In a large mixing bowl, sift your flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Make a well in the center and add your milk, egg, and melted butter and mix until smooth. Heat a griddle on med. high heat, grease with butter or spray and pour batter onto griddle. If you want to sweeten them up with chocolate chips, simply sprinkle a few on before flipping the pancake to the second side. Serve with syrup, peanut butter, powdered sugar, fruit spread, or any of your other favorite toppings and enjoy!

NOTE: Flour amounts might differ if you change the flour to another type (i.e. a gluten free flour). I haven't experimented with different flours yet, so if you do, let us know!
