Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar twice. This is very important in making these pancakes light. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, melted butter and extract. mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

    Oh wow these look so good.. I could have these for breakfast tomorrow. I wonder if I could make the batter at night and refrigerate. The next morning all I would have to do is heat the griddle and pour out the batter to make them. What do you Lillian? I think this sounds like a plan to me of course I would only be making like three large pancakes.

    Thank you Juliann! I've never made the batter ahead of time. I usually make it and cook it right away, but it would probably work fine! This makes about 20 pancakes (1/4 cup per), and I freeze the leftover pancakes. Then we microwave them as we need them. Let me know how it works out for you!

    Yes Lillian I will let you know how they come out. You have given me a good idea. I will make the batter tonight, and I'll cook them all tonight and freeze them in freezer bags three to a package. Then tomorrow I will just pop in the microwave. Anything that will save me time is wonderful Thanks Lillian LOL and blessings
