Serves:

12 pancakes

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Method:

Griddle

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
flour
2 Tbsp
sugar
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
milk
2
eggs
3 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
vegetable oil
2 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the griddle. If you do not have a griddle, preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. As you cook the cakes be sure that the skillet does not get too hot.
2
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together, then set aside.
3
Using an electric mixer set on high, beat the milk and eggs until light yellow, then beat in the butter 1 tablespoon of oil, and add the vanilla. Turn off the mixer and add in the flour mixture, and beat on low just until blended and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes (do not overbeat at this stage or the pancakes can be tough).
4
To cook the griddle cakes:
Brush the preheated griddle or skillet with enough vegetable oil to coat it well. For each cake pour a scant 1/4 cup of the batter onto the hot griddle making 4-inch cakes, about 1 inch apart. Let the cakes cook until the tops are covered with bubbles and edges look done, about 3 minutes. Quickly flip over the cakes and cook on the opposite sides until golden, about 2 minutes more.
5
Serve immediately with hot melted butter, warm syrup, and warm apple and raisin preserves.
6
This recipe yields 12 (4-inch) pancakes.
