To Serve: Grease and preheat griddle. Combine 1 bag or jar of pancake mix, 1 2/3 cups water, 1 egg, and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a medium bowl. Stir just until moistened. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Cook until toop of pancake has a few bubbles and bottom is golden brown. Turn with a spatula and cook until remaining side is golden brown. serve warm pancakes with syrup of choice. I like to give a bowl, dish towel, hot pad, and wooden spoon and spatula with the gift.
