In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, vanilla, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
Spray griddle or frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Sprinkle approximately 1-2 Tbsp sausage on top of pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with butter and syrup.
Serves 4; If you want to make larger pancakes and for more people double the recipe. Yum...
