Penny's Basic Pancakes:
2 cups self rising flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup oil
1 cup milk (more if you like thinner pancakes)
Mix just until blended. Don' t over mix! Pancake batter is like brownie and muffin batter, the less you mix the more tender your results. And if you like pancakes extra fluffy, just go ahead and add a tsp of baking powder.
Pour out 1/4 cup measures onto a hot griddle. When tops begin to bubble and the bubbles to break, then flip over and cook until bottom becomes light golden brown.
They are truly that easy to make. And boy oh boy! There's nothing like a really tender homemade pancake!
Variations: Add any of the following: 1 diced ripe peach, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup shredded apple, 1/2 cup chopped pecans
