How to Make Junior's Griddle Cakes


  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.
