We have eaten pancakes at least once a week for years. Seriously. Using this same recipe. Not always do we use the Mickey Mouse waffle maker. A lot of times we use the skillet. But we always use the same recipe. It was the recipe that came with the waffle maker. But we have always called them pancakes. Over the years, we have added one ingredient. Vanilla. My husband claims it was his secret ingredient. I'll give him the honors for that one.
This recipe really is embedded in my brain. I hope, like knitting, it never escapes me.
2 eggs :: 1 3/4 cup milk :: 1/4 cup vegetable oil :: 1 3/4 cup flour :: 2 tbls sugar :: 4 tsp baking powder :: 1 tsp salt :: 1-2 tsp vanilla.
Separate egg. Beat egg whites stiff. In another bowl, mix the egg yolks with the milk and oil. Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until combined. Fold in egg whites.
Sometimes we add mashed bananas to the batter. Sometimes blueberries. Occasionally chocolate chips.
